Visto Images

I am pleased to announce that I have signed my first artwork licensing agreement in collaboration with VISTO Images, an art consultancy with offices in Paris and Cyprus.

The firm was founded by two American Ph.D’s and describes itself as a” bespoke art consultancy based in Paris that curates art collections for the hospitality industry, commercial properties and private residences.” 

My work was discovered by the firm’s art researchers, who have selected me to be added as one of their “preferred artists”, allowing VISTO to propose my work on a regular basis to their clients around the world.

Some information on the firm’s founders (from their website) is below:

“Seth Rosenbaum, Ph.D., Co-founder and CEO of VISTO Images, leads our office in Nicosia, Cyprus. He completed his Ph.D. in 2013 at Harvard University in the English Department. Seth’s doctoral thesis studies twentieth-century notions of taste and style, with a particular focus on American literature and food.

He received his bachelor’s degree in English summa cum laude from Columbia University in 2004. He received the departmental thesis prize for his work on William Blake, one of England’s greatest artists and poets at the turn of the 19th century.”

Alex Toledano, Ph.D., Co-founder and President of VISTO Images, leads our Paris office. He received his Ph.D. in 2012 in Late Modern European History at the University of California, Berkeley, and is a specialist on the history of Paris since the French Revolution.

He received a bachelor’s degree in Art and Archaeology summa cum laude from Princeton University in 2004. He won the departmental thesis prize for Illuminating the Canon: Institutions and the Development of the Canon of Abstract Expressionism, which studied how paintings by Abstract Expressionist artists — Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Willem de Kooning, and others — became the most valuable, important works of American art in the global art market.
