SOLÈNE is also the first name of the person behind this vision and the ideas. A truly French passionate and dedicated Art lover, she started her career at Sotheby’s London having studied Art Law, the Art Market and Art History for a number of years.
Solène holds a double M.A. One in Cultural law, Intellectual Property, Tech law and Business law from Paris XI and The Sorbonne in Paris (DICC) and a M.A in Art Law & Tax Law from Lyon III, France. She also holds two postgraduate diploma, Art Law & Capital Market regulations from Monash Law School (Melbourne, Australia) and the Art Market and Art Business at Lyon III (France). She also studied Art History at University of Lille (France).
Her passion for Arts started at the age of 5 growing up amongst the Loire Valley castles. Her Granny used to take Solène to admire those astonishing homes filled with art, elegant interiors and heritage. This began her love affair with art in the home.
We hope you are as excited by the passion and potential as we are.
CURATION & COLLABORATION
As part of our services, we offer a personal and dedicated approach to our private and professional clients.
For the past 8 years, Solène, our founder, has previously helped private clients curating their interiors and/or art collections. From English manors, castles, cottages, London hotels, Parisian flats, Brussels homes and Cannes villas, her eye for art and interiors adapts to your taste and requirements.
We enhance any interior projects with art working alongside interior designers, architects and our clients.
We believe in "living well with art" and we work closely with around 100 artists worldwide from leading contemporary artists to young emerging artists just out of art schools.
We can also curate other periods of the art history (impressionist, old master paintings etc) depending on the projects and the needs of our clients.
Our latest public project opened in October 2020 is 5* boutique hotel, The Guardsman, in Buckingham Gate (St James) Central London where some 220 pieces of art were curated. Solène also helped her clients enhancing and personalising the space by choosing key pieces of furniture, luxurious fabric such as Parisian Maison Pierre Frey and antique unique pieces.
We also have access to private gallery spaces and high end pieces on the primary & secondary market, if our client's desire is to enjoy art at home as well as investing in art.
We understand that great work doesn’t happen in isolation, as such SOLÈNE works closely with many top galleries, agents, curators, interior designers and architects in London and around the world.
Solène's private home is a 250 square meters apartment in Central London (next to Chelsea Bridge) looking over the Thames and most of London with many of the artists that she works with on display in this space. Her home is available to see by private appointment only. Please go to the section l'Appartement to read further about this.
