Old Master Prints

The international Old Master Prints market still shows solid interest for “classic” works such as those by Albrecht Dürer, Rembrandt van Rijn and Giovanni Battista Piranesi. The buyer base includes younger collectors as well as established ones, who often purchase these prints to be displayed alongside their Contemporary art collections. Certain prints by Francisco Goya are astonishingly modern in their execution for example, and can be displayed very well next to a religious scene by a Renaissance artist like Parmagianino.
