The Art Collector was established in Sandton, Johannesburg

contemporary artists, to the art collector.
While specializing in international fine prints, the gallery's has access
to a works which also includes painting, sculpture, ceramics, and illustrated
artist's books by modern and contemporary masters.
Being based in the heart of South Africa we have access to a wide range
of both established and up and coming young African artists, which amongst
other works include pottery and bead works.
In addition to holding an inventory of owned pieces, we work with both
international and local dealers to SOURCE important prints, sculpture,
impressionist, post-impressionist and 20th century works.
“French Impressionism started a great cycle of change, throwing
off the strictures and limitations of hundreds, indeed thousands, of years
of the Western cannon. This change continued with Post Impressionism,
Cubism, Fauvism, and German Expressionism, to name but a few nineteenth
and early twentieth century movements. The culmination and refinement
of many of these exciting and challenging directions were delineated in
modern art, which produced a new renaissance. Picasso, Miro, Marini, Matisse,
Moore, Kandinsky, Pollock, Rothko and a host of artists have distilled
the essence of the centuries of art that preceded ours and restated the
precepts of the classical in previously unimaginable ways, thereby deconstructing
artificial barriers that would disconnect the past from the present, while
challenging future generations to do the same.”
