Artcurial Italy launched its Milan office in 2012, in the historic Casa Crespi, a few steps away from the Duomo. The palace represents a unique example of a 17th century noble residence. The offices are located in the residence’s stables, now, as the entire property, fully restored in the 1920’s by architect Piero Portaluppi.
Artcurial, international auction house based in Paris, confirms its position as frontrunner in the market, in particular following the outstanding sale results of Italian artists in Paris, and is the international reference in Design as well as an essential player in the Ancient Paintings and Drawings market.
The Milan office organises numerous events that have become an essential meeting for art lovers including preliminary viewings of selections of some of the season’s most significant pieces, book signatures, cultural events and even meetings and greetings with renowned artists.
Artcurial Italy organizes frequent valuation days in specialties covered by the auction house, from Contemporary Art and Jewellery, and including Design, Furniture, Ancient Paintings, Timepieces and Automobile, throughout the year.
Artcurial’s specialists travel in Italy to offer complimentary valuations as well as insurance evaluations or advice in matters of purchase or sale.
For a free and confidential appraisal of your works and property, our experts will be available at our Milan headquarters and throughout Italy during the appraisal days announced below or by appointment outside the proposed dates.
In the event of further restrictions due to Covid, valuations will be carried out by videoconference.
