Arnaud Dubois Associates is a consulting firm specializing in art dealing and art wealth management.
Based on our expertise in the contemporary art market and its networks, we aim at advising collectors as well as private and institutional investors.
Arnaud Dubois Associates is completely independent from the art market. The quality of our consulting and the selection of artworks are based on expert knowledge of art and its various markets.
Since we do not own the works that we recommend, we act in the interest of our clients, providing assistance throughout the acquisition and sale process.
