“I do not invest in art as a financial asset. Art is an investment in the quality of life. “(…)” Art is there to stimulate our minds and question our ways of thinking and not to be another investment! “- (Francesca von Habsburg, from Adam Lindemann, collecting contemporary art, Taschen 2006, p. 169)

Art consultants play a key role in the current art market since we do not only help our clients in acquiring contemporary art for their home or office – we also take care of the entire process from sourcing, acquisition, negotiations, logistic, insurance and installation on site. At VELVENOIR our art experts, attend art fairs and are heavily involved within the local art scene, going to exhibitions and artists studios to ensure we find the perfect art for you.[/rs_special_text][rs_image_block align=”align-center” image=”2455″][rs_special_text font=”google_web_font_Montserrat” tag=”h4″]HOW DO WE FIND THE PERFECT ART FOR YOU?
