ABOUT

Tom Desmet began working with antiques in 1980 and now has over thirty years experience in the business. His son Tobias has been a partner in the gallery for five years, having completed his MA at the Catholic University of Leuven after which he gained six years’ experience abroad. The gallery is based in the Sablon district – the heart of art and antiques in Belgium. The exhibited objects include classical sculptures and works of art that date from Antiquity, the Renaissance and the Baroque and Neoclassical periods, reflecting the taste of a 19th century ‘Grand Tour’ collector.
