Art Expertise Since 1978

We have been trading art since 1978. Our motivation is the same today as it was then: living with art should be accessible to everyone, regardless of where they live, how much they have or who they know.

KUNSTHAUS ARTES pioneered the art market twice in the past: as the first ever mail-order gallery and later as the first online shop for art.


Our Program

ARTES presents works of classical modernism, post war, pop art and contemporary art in three large annual catalogs, several magazines and in our online store.

Including highlights by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Gerhard Richter, Andy Warhol and Neo Rauch. More and more works by up-and-coming talents from the international art scene are being added.

Curated Selection

The range in our online shop is carefully selected.

The majority of our team consists of art historians who check the condition and provenance of every incoming artwork.

This guarantees that at ARTES you will find only original and selected works of relevant artists of the 20th and 21st centuries.

Our Services

Art with a guarantee

We set ourselves apart in the art market early on by offering special services.

For example, with our return guarantee and our authenticity guarantee. This allows our customers to make a purchase without any risk.


Personal viewing at your home

With the help of our international network of experts, we regularly track down sought-after works for you.

We are pleased to present them to you in person, for example, at your home or in our gallery in Berlin-Mitte.


ARTES Catalogue

Our catalogues from the 1980s and 1990s are still on the shelves of many art lovers.

Today, we publish a comprehensive printed catalogue three times a year. We present a collection of the most beautiful works of art. In addition, you will find exciting background information on selected works and artists, current exhibition reviews and interviews with art experts.

Pioneer on the Online Art Market

ARTES was one of the first in Germany to establish art trading online.

We thus have years of expertise in online art trading and guarantee a safe and reliable art purchase.

ARTES Berlin - Our Gallery

At our new location, Auguststraße 19 in Berlin, we have been permanently showcasing artworks by renowned as well as young artists since 2020.

In changing exhibitions, we present painting, graphic art, and sculpture from our programme.
