With offices in London, Düsseldorf, Paris, New York and Sydney, and a client and contact base stretching from Malaysia to Mexico City, 1858’s aim is to help you fulfil your art collecting objectives, whatever they may be.

It covers all aspects of the collecting life cycle, providing strategic advice around transactions, curating, building collections and collection management – the latter an offering which has grown significantly over recent years.

‘Clients understand that when art represents a serious component of their assets it needs to be managed with the same level of due diligence and expertise as their other holdings,’ says managing director Viola Raikhel-Bolot, who co-founded the business with Harvey Mendelson.

‘The key point of differentiation is our platform of independence, impartiality and transparency,’ she says. ‘We want to provide the best market intelligence to our clients so that they are making informed decisions, so they understand the market better.’

Raikhel-Bolot is excitedly awaiting the publication of her book about Empress Farah Pahlavi of Iran, who inaugurated the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art in 1977, just two years before the revolution – the first in a series of untold stories about ‘women who have changed the course of art history’, from her and Miranda Darling’s production company, Vanishing Pictures Productions.
