Reviews and Testimonials

Thank you for your good service – we love the “Green Exile” and look forward to future interactions.


Just received the Picasso from the Vollard Suite!! My expectations were exceeded by the piece. It really looks much better in person and I am truly thankful for you accurate description of the work.

Because of this experience, I will consider your gallery first when I search for any future interests!

Very pleased

Thank you for the great service you provided to me on this. The framing, matting, look great, as does the litho. I am very happy with everything you did.


I just wanted to tell you that my wife & I were just stunned by the Rembrandt. The framing was superb.

The Agam and Hopfer arrived a couple of weeks ago in excellent condition – finally had the opportunity to view the pieces. Very pleased with both purchases. Like you said, the colors of the Agam are wonderful. My admin assistant was just as “wowed” by the execution as I, and the Hopfer just stole my heart (like I said “MUST HAVE IT – lol).

Again – thank you and hope this finds you well.
Looking forward to future acquisitions and business dealings..

Thank you so much. We got the pictures and they are lovely!

The said work arrived this morning and I am very happy with both the picture and the state it was in upon arrival. Thank you for all your help.

Arrived safely. What a beautiful piece. It is literally like he has hand painted it. Even the frame you have put it in is amazing, must be worth a bit on it’s own!

Just have to decide where to put it now 🙂


this short note to inform you that your beautiful piece has been safely delivered this morning. Thank you very much for your kind cooperation and understanding. Looking forward to dealing with you again in the future, I send you my very best regards. Yours sincerely Luca.

I thought you might like to see my wife’s reaction on Christmas to the Manet woodcut I purchased for her. I know you have bigger collectors, but you’ll rarely find one this excited. Thanks for making it happen!

Miro Serie III arrived [here] – in a very good condition. It’s really a masterwork – I’m happy that it´s now here and I can look at it. Thank you for the very good service, and have a good time.

Best regards

Hi from Italy!!
Thank you very much for your precious answer , you are a very kind person!
Thanks again and have a wonderful day!

I just wanted to let you know that we love our Rembrandt work The Descent From The Cross.

Hi Rob,

Thank you for helping to make Christmas so memorable. My wife loved the prints and the ceramics. Thank you for insisting on the print of the Flying Dove, as it is indeed beautiful. Thank you also for your honesty regarding Bearded Yan as you were right it is not as strong as the others. The print of Jacqueline and the goat plate are both outstanding.

Every item arrived perfectly and exactl

I received the Lautrec and it’s obviously even lovelier vis-a-vis. Thanks a bunch for working with me on it and I hope to send more business your way…

Hope you are well. We had the chance to fly to Miami and finally open the two Calders. They are great, my husband is very happy with them. Please send me the instructions for the wire transfer, so that you can later eliminate the charges done to AMEX.

Thanks a lot !!!!

… the Miro arrived today and is now safely on the living room wall. Thank you for a wonderful transaction.

Best regards

I received Dürer’s Christ before Caiaphas (The Small Passion) today in perfect order. Thank you for taking great pains in wrapping it so well. The framing is done magnificently well.
