With over 25 years experience in the fine art world Ottocento take pride in offering rare and intriguing works of art at affordable prices including paintings, prints and vintage posters.
Ottocento can provide preferential rates with auction houses and handle the selling process from consignment to payment. If you are interested in buying a work of art not illustrated on our website, or if you want to build your collection, we can help by using our global network of contacts with art dealers, auction houses and galleries. All services are conducted with complete confidentiality.
Ottocento purchases artworks at the best price possible. We can sell paintings and prints at affordable prices because we do not have associated gallery costs. If you would like to view any of our works of art then we can organise an appointment at our premises.
All items can be shipped on approval to clients anywhere in the world.
Max has worked in the art world for more than 20 years. After completing a Masters in Textile Design at Central St Martin's, he achieved notable success with sales of his work at outlets including Harrods. He started working at Christie's in 1995, working his way through the auction house as a decorative picture sales specialist, with a particular interest in 19th-century European painting. He finished his tenure at Christie's as Head of Sale.
In 2014, Max decided it was time to use his now broad knowledge of the art market to branch out on his own, providing consultations and selling art independently. He has maintained strong links with the London art scene and close contacts that help him provide an integral art service for Ottocento.
