With more than 25 years of experience working in art and design, Lars Rachen and Paolo Vincenzi have developed an expert professional eye, knowledge of their field, and an uncompromising aesthetic clarity.

In an ever-shifting world, their purpose is to share this sensibility with others. Their expertise is coupled with a commitment to honest, consistent service.

Paolo studied architecture in Venice and started his career in museum art installations, later specialising in modern and contemporary Italian art.

Lars was a director of the 20th Century Design department at Christie’s New York, then co-founded McClelland+Rachen, a consultancy devoted to modern decorative arts and design.

Their credo is simple:

“If we have learned one thing about art, it is this: You never tire of excellence. When you see something great – a painting, a room – you always want to look again and discover new and exciting things about it.

Collect carefully. Buy only things of quality – objects, furniture, and works of art which are made with the purpose of giving great pleasure and lasting enjoyment.

This is what interests us and the complexity of this pursuit is what we service.”
