This specialization has now made us a point of reference in the current market. Martini’s Art Studio advertises its auctions using the main means of communication: newspapers, national and satellite televison, they are web-streamed and presented on the main platforms dedicated to the market of art and advertised on the main social networks.
This means that the Auction House can reach a larger public, guaranteeing a greater visibility to the works and better results.

HOW DOES SALE BY PRIVATE TRANSACTION WORK?

Martini’s Art Studio also offers the services of sale by private transaction. These particular clients are particularly demanding and are always searching for prestigious and high-quality works; they often commission us to retrieve certain works not included in auctions. In this case we agree the terms of our contract directly with the client.
