Art for Everyone!

Carré d’artistes® is an exciting, innovative sales model devised by art lovers whose goal is to revolutionize the art market and open it to people who want to buy beautiful but affordable art.
Our first art gallery opened in France in 2001. Today, Carré d’artistes® is the leader in the accessible art market, with a network of 32 galleries in 11 countries. The galleries exhibit a selection of 600 talented artists chosen by the Carré d’artistes®Art Department.

Our objective is to "democratize" contemporary art, to support artists and the creative process, and to offer unique and affordable artworks in open, welcoming art galleries that bring the consumer directly in contact with works.

Gallery doors are wide open, the atmosphere is warm and friendly, and our staff takes the time to explain the merits of each artist’s work. Customers feel comfortable as they browse, and are delighted that they can afford genuinely beautiful pieces of art to take home.
