The Art Lending Service offers its clients an easy way to acquire high-quality art for rent or purchase by instalments.

By paying monthly instalments you can keep the rented work as long as you wish. When the price of the work has been paid in full, the work becomes your property. Should you decide to purchase the artwork during the lending period, the instalments already paid as rent will be deducted from the selling price.

Why not purchase our gift vouchers, available in all prices and an excellent gift for any art lover!
