Caterina Maffeis

Expert Art (classical)

I have a lot of respect for those old paintings that have survived until today

Caterina Maffeis
Given that her family has owned a restoration studio for already one century, Caterina grew up surrounded by classical art. The decision of studying classical art came as a natural inherent thing.

When she saw the vacancy to become an expert at Catawiki, she directly thought it would be a great idea to combine her work at her parents’ studio with the opportunity of curating classical art auctions. ‘I love to work with attractive objects that have a story behind them. I have a lot of respect for those old paintings that have survived until today. Especially paintings, they can really talk, and I love to try to understand what they want to tell us.’ In short, Caterina puts classic art up for auction makes it available to everyone: she now has the opportunity to bring old and precious objects into our users’ lives.
