With the opening of a gallery in Brussels 15 years ago, specialized in medieval art, it was an old dream that came true. In our incessant quest for purity, authenticity and beauty, we always choose for emotion being reinforced by the quality. Our collection may justifiably be deemed unusual; in our work, we bear in mind not only those traditional collectors but also young collectors and art lovers in general. Many of our clients bought their first medieval piece from us, which means a lot to us.
We set great store in establishing personal contact with the visitors during the fair with the express purpose of being able to illustrate and convey our passion for medieval art. We feel that it is part of our mission to bring medieval art and the general public in closer contact with each other. Every year, we undertake this task in various ways including our attendance of various fairs where each season we exhibit a new collection presented as part of an artistically enlightening display.
Medieval art is no longer considered as a religious phenomenon only. It still has the strong spiritual power to touch people such as it did already 500 years ago but people nowadays are also able to look at a medieval sculpture as an art object.

It is always a pleasure to catch up, to deepen relationships and to enjoy beautiful things together. So we gladly invite our friends collectors and artlovers at our private home where we have our exposition gallery today.
