100 days 100 galleries; Day 91: Soraya Cartategui Fine Art, Spain

Soraya Cartategui was the pioneer in introducing master works of the Dutch Golden Age into the Spanish market, instituting her as a noted point of reference for private and public collectors.
National art fairs such as Feriarte (Fair of Antiques in Spain) and Artemania, and also in international events such as the Antique Art Fair of Lisbon (Portugal), the Antique Fair in Buenos Aires (Argentina), the Antique Art Fair of Milan (Italy), and The Moscow World Fine Art Fair (Russia), The Original Miami Beach Antique Show (Miami), The Palm Beach Jewelry, Art & Antique Show (Palm Beach), Spring Masters (New York),to name a few.

Carlos Fentanes: Why Kaws artworks are so important? Sometimes I see them and looks like cartoons.

The gallery didn’t answer.

Is this a valid question? We have with him a world phenomenon, with sales everywhere, from clothes to Sotheby’s and biennials everywhere. Maybe there’s a part of me with a lot of envy and jealousy, just to balance all the sides of the coin.

The gallery didn’t bother to answer my comment maybe because they think that ask this question is silly or maybe because they also don’t know why he is so important, I said maybe. Something that it’s true for sure is that Kaws has known how to do it and do it great.

On the other hand I was browsing the web site of this gallery and they have very little information about them, there’s no even an address. Do you think they have information about submissions? of course not. A very bad website in that sense, it’s just to show their catalog of renown artists but not for buying, maybe they know that their market is not in the web but in Art Fairs.

In their website there’s no images of the gallery if it really exists in a space but there’s a lot of information about Art Fairs, it seems that they tour all year long across Europe.
