Olivier Bertrand has been active in the Fine Art world since 1989. From the very beginning of his career he specialised in Belgian Art of the 19th and 20th century. Ten years later, in 1999, his passion for the rich artistic heritage of his native country led him to the foundation of the Belgian Art Research institute.
In two decades of dealing with art he has developed in-depth knowledge on the art scene in Belgium. He has established close relationships with collectors, museums and auction houses. His work comprises:
Providing expertise on Belgian paintings, drawings and sculptures
Providing worldwide expertise for Ivan Pokhitonov (Pokitonow)
Consulting museums on exhibitions and acquisitions
Setting up collections of 19th and 20th century art for individual and corporate clients
Providing appraisal and advice for auction houses, private collectors and insurances
Publication of catalogues and reference books on Belgian artists and Ivan Pokitonow (Pokhitonov)
Olivier Bertrand has shared his experience and know-how through numerous publications. His research on multi-talents like Rik Wouters has filled an important gap in the literature on Belgian Art History.
Olivier Bertrand is a member of the Syndicat National Français des Experts Professionnels en Oeuvres d'Art, one of the most prestigious European association of Art Experts.
