We are international fine art dealers and advisors based in London, covering the full spectrum of the market – from Old Masters to Post War & Contemporary Art.
Inspired by a great passion for both old and modern masters of painting and after several high profile professional experiences in the international art world, Enrico and Alessandro decided to join forces and establish Hippeus Art Brokerage – a boutique fine Art consultancy firm, based in London but operating internationally on behalf of a wide range of both private as well as institutional clients.
We professionally advise our clients on every delicate aspect surrounding the purchase – or sale – of a valuable work of Art, either via auction or private treaty, by carefully assessing quality, condition, provenance, rarity and value, with the ultimate goal to match each client’s needs and unlock the full potential of their Art, whether it is a single piece or an entire collection.
With our experience, extensive network and an approach entirely focused on our clients you can trust our service to be world-class and fully independent, tailored to your requests.
