We are a popular contemporary art boutique specializing in expertly chosen, blue chip prints, multiples, uniques, books, ephemera and merchandise at different price points, with a focus on the secondary market. Over the years, we have built a loyal following on Artsy, Artnet, 1stDibs and Artspace - but we have been selling fine art online before all of them. For the privacy of our clients and for ease in viewing, we typically unpublish works after they have sold - and we do not share sold prices.
