Art will always be part of my life.
From an early age, Leo Setz and art have been inseparable. It all started with drawing and painting but later he started working for his father at his auction and art trade business. This then inspired him to create his own flourishing art and picture framing business. In this way, Leo Setz has been obsessed with art his entire life. Thanks to all the paintings that he has encountered in his shop, he has developed a great feeling for the value of individual paintings. He loves sifting through a large inventory, deciding what to do with each piece.
All this experience makes Leo Setz an asset to Catawiki. Through examining paintings to such a great extent, he now knows exactly which details he has to pay attention to. And through his work as a restorer, he has learned how to see the true potential of a painting, beyond any dust or dirt that it may contain. Leo Setz knows how to appreciate a wide collection of paintings, both high-end and low-end art. Through this he creates an increasingly beautiful collection and even more exciting auctions.
