Ottocento are established fine art dealers who procure not only unusual paintings from Old Masters through to contemporary, but also prints and works on paper, all at a reasonable cost. The unique team at Ottocento are husband and wife Max and Louise Andrews, who share over 30 years’ collective experience in the fine art world and are absolutely passionate about sourcing distinctive and compelling pieces of art that have a narrative. Their friendly and approachable manner means whether this is your first fine art purchase or you are building a collection, you will feel fully welcomed and receive a personal service tailored to your requirements.
Max’s extensive knowledge of art derives from his Masters in Textile Design at Central St Martin's and working at Christie’s in London, ending his tenure there as Head of Sale. Louise, herself a Masters graduate from Palazzo Spinelli in Florence, has worked at both Christie’s and Gurr John’s Ltd and with prominent international art collectors and collections.
The husband and wife team maintain close contacts with art dealers, auction houses and galleries both in London and internationally, meaning they can find exciting and rare works of art should you wish to find something in particular. They have sold to museums and public institutions alike as well as to individuals who want to build their collections.
Ottocento offers competitive prices as they do not have associated gallery costs and instead hold viewings at their own premises in the heart of the West Sussex countryside. They negotiate preferential rates with auction houses and will handle the selling process from consignment to payment and can ship artwork to anywhere in the world.
They show at key art fairs each year including BADA and LAPADA (both of which Ottocento is a member), Olympia and Connect in the Mall Galleries in London, plus Petworth Park Antiques & Fine Art Fair in West Sussex.
Additional services include valuations, restoration, research and bespoke framing as well as an art advisory service if someone would like to build a collection. For more information and details of terms please contact us.
