Welcome to Travel Argentina for Antiques and Art
Location: La Lucila, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Interests: The first project: The Buenos Aires Toy Museum, I began to work on was the oy museum I found myself finding in flea markets, fairs and old toy shops beautiful and rare toys made in Argentina about which there was no information available. I looked everywhere until I found out that I couldn find it ause it didn exist. All the amazing Argentine made toys I collected were made during the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s, and unlike other countries in the world who worry about their history and cultural legacy, we s a society- have let them in forget. So at the same time I collected vintage and antique toys I began to develop a research group who was in charge of finding all loose pieces available to complete the puzzle of the Argentinean toy industry history. The result has been so far not only encouraging but amazing, for besides of understanding the true nature of some of our most marvellous items, Ie had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing many of the most outstanding Argentinean industrials. The Museum has grown ever since I blended the objects with the information about them. And it has become to be the first virtual museum on Argentinean toys in the country and in Latin America. The feedback wee received throughout these incredible years of hard and hearted work have gave us strength and passion to keep on developing what so far is has come to be a brilliant idea. At the same time the Museum grew and I began to discover the richness in Argentina cultural and social history through means of one of its material productions: toys. A ticking question my toy oriented research unveiled was that every culture reflexes their vision of the world through their objects, and I found out that many American models that were been produced in Argentina were been adapted to the Latin American cultural public. So I began to wonder about how an immigrant built country objects would reflect this, and it has been quite a great surprise, the blend of the indigenous, colonial and immigrant cultures is superb down here and the objects these past generations have left us are outstanding. This is how ArtDealer,The Buenos Aires ArtDealer, as a cultural and collectibles project began. My initial knowledge of art and antiques, and my experience with cultural research at the Museum were the foundation for Art Dealer to begin to grow. At the same time, as I kept on travelling through the bewitching scenarios of the beautiful Argentina I began to understand a bit more about that eclectic and gorgeous culture that intrigued me so much about the objects of our forefathers. Precious treasures. Hidden under the everyday life chores. To me this has been a discovering experience that has filled me with joy, and keeps on surprising me every day as a young child who begins to open up to the world marvels. When Argentina, during the 2001 crisis, began to open up to travellers from all over the world, who were coming to discover this wonderful place, I thought I had to share my experience with those who cherished culture, travelling, and discovering as much as I did. I also thought that if I were to travel overseas I love to do it the way the saying says: When in Rome, you do what Romans doand nothing better than a Roman to show you how. To share my knowledge and discoveries, I design custom made tours, not only ause I like to work on a personal basis, but because I deeply believe each of us is unique and has different interests and passions and mass produced standard culture leaves out ome times- very important things. And for Buenos Aires, as every other metropolis has something to offer to each and every one of us, likewise Argentina. Seven years have gone by now since Ie began to picture this broad cultural project, and each and every one of the days Ie worked to develop my idea have been amazing, with its ups and downs, inputs and changes of direction. I very glad and grateful to be able to do what I love most and to be able to share it with others who, as myself find this lifetime experience unique and beautiful.

Auctions in Buenos Aires are a great option for collectors
Topic: Personal Shopper Tour
Auctions in Buenos Aires are a great option for collectors, antique dealers and gallery owners from around the globe.
The fact that Latin American art is growing worldwide in terms of prestige and acceptance is clear to us all. During the late 90s it was Christie’s auction house the pioneer who saw the market evolution line in the world of Latin American Art, antiques and collectibles. Back then the major and oldest auction house in the world and Argentina’s finest and most traditional auction house Naon, joined ventures to work in the local market. Since then, several auctioneers from around the globe began to work in the country. Sotheby’s owns an auction house in Buenos Aires, working very well. Local auctioneers such as Arroyo Gallery, Roldan, Bullrich, Banco Ciudad auctions, Sarachaga –just to mention some- are working strongly in the local and international scene.
The fact that Argentine and Latin American artists are highly appreciated world wide together with the fact that Argentina beholds a rich collection of consecrated European and American artists, makes of this place a really appealing market for art lovers and dealers from all over the planet.
Since Christie’s first auctions of Latin American for 2.5 million dollars in the early 1980s to the record sales in 1994 with 28 million dollars in auctions, the Latin Art is growing.
In November 1996, Antonio Berni, Argentine painter of great name opened
the world market for native artists, when he sold his “The immigrants” painting for over half a million dollars.
This week, Sotheby’s monthly bulletin reads: “Sotheby's year-end total for Latin American Art reached a record $28,263,000 - the highest amount of any auction house in the history of the field. Buoyed by the excellent quality of the works on offer, along with realistic estimates and an ever-widening group of buyers, the market for Latin American Art clearly increased its strength in 2005. From Colonial to Contemporary Art, from South to North America, this year's total set records that point to deep international interest across the wide range of movements and artists that comprise the overall Latin American Art market”.
To buyers around the globe, Latin American auction houses are appearing more appealing by the minute, not only for the broader of the options, but also for the favorable exchange rates with European and American currencies.
All in all, buying art and antiques in South America and Argentina in particular isn’t free of rules and paperwork to handle. There are specific regulations to follow, licenses are required and know how involved in acquiring and exporting art.
Art dealer has a specialized team that handles everything in terms of art, collectibles and antiques auctions, and shopping, hunting and customized touring services. The planning begins before you arrive to the city, with conversations, directions and market research of the style, art and antiques you’re looking for. From the minute you arrive to Buenos Aires we handle everything from picking you up in the airport, hotel reservations, auctions scheduling, hunts to off the path markets and fairs, discounts, shipping and handling all the paper work regarding the exporting of the works.
This is a great opportunity to work with and take advantage, but the best way to take the most out of it is by planning and working in advance.
