Alexandra Ray and Catherine Loewe have partnered from both sides of the pond to bring you The Eye of the Huntress. With their deep knowledge of post-war and contemporary art, artists, collectors and the market, these two ardent art lovers have combined their talents to launch an alternative way to view and buy art for the connoisseur, collector and art insider.
With the current restrictions on being able to physically visit international art fairs or venturing out to galleries, we are embracing the latest digital technology now available to present hand-picked works set in a series of stunning locations across the world, creating an immersive experience with beautiful interior and exterior spaces, which allow the viewer to visualize living with art at home. Every three months we aim to bring you a curated collection of the artworld’s most coveted works to enjoy and acquire at the press of a button. We offer a seamless nail to nail service that includes shipping, insurance and installation from the gallery or studio straight to your home. We also work with clients to source specific pieces or commission site-specific installations and sculpture.
Since the advent of Artnet, Artsy, Artsper and many other on-line art platforms, today’s buyer is overwhelmed with art choices. What if you could be sent 20 distinctive artworks by sought after artists, every 3 months and have this capsule collection save you months of trawling through hundreds of art world websites and newsletters? Our mantra is less is more and we believe in “edit, edit, edit “ for the discerning collector! We want to curate art into manageable bite size selections so you can find gorgeous, timeless works of art for your homes and collections.
With many years as art consultants to private collectors, interior designers and architects, we have developed a sense of what is in the ‘zeitgeist’ and what people want to actually live with. After more than a decade working with clients on the rewarding journey of creating their art collections, we now wish to use our expertise and access to further assist the collector who is ready for the next level, investing in distinctive pieces by notable artists. We are delighted to be partnering with leading galleries from all over the globe to offer hand-picked pieces from their stable of artists.
