ABOUT US

Dear visitor

As you can see on this website, we are art-dealers specialised in medieval art. After opening our own art dealership 10 years ago, an enduring dream was finally fulfilled. At last, we could honour our love for medieval art. An art and antiques fair is the ideal opportunity for us to impart this passion. Here, we can elucidate to our heart's content, and hopefully our audience catches a spark of our burning passion. In our unending search for intrinsic beauty and purity, we choose content, absolutely every time. Our collection is willful and personal. Year after year, we find a renewed interest in medieval art. It is thus no coincidence that the Middle Ages are once again in vogue and are being exhibited across a broad stratum of cultural life.

Medieval art comes from a culture familiar to us, and we have an instinctive understanding and passionate love for it, which we feel a need to share. In our incessant quest for purity, authenticity and beauty, we have brought together a personal collection of medieval sculptures, ivories, bronzes, alabasters and paintings, never letting our emotions overcome our dedication to quality and content.

Our collection may justifiably be deemed unusual; we bear in mind not only those traditional collectors but also young collectors and art lovers in general. Many of our clients bought their first medieval piece from us which means a lot to us.

Once again we are now eagerly looking forward to our participation at several fairs such as PAN Amsterdam, BRAFA in Brussels and MASTERPIECE in Londen. We set great store in establishing personal contact with the visitor during the fair with the express purpose of being able to illustrate and convey our passion for medieval art. We feel that is part of our mission to bring medieval art and the general public in closer contact with each other. Every year, we undertake this task in various ways including our attendance of several fairs where each season we exhibit of course a new collection presented as part of an artistically enlightening display. Perhaps we will have the pleasure to meet you by one of these occasions!
