No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.

Oscar Wilde

Duarte is an online art gallery specialized in contemporary art.

The gallery focuses on artists who live and work in Russia and The Netherlands. This includes amongst others Russian born artists Andre Medvedev and immigrants like Italian Elide Cabassi who has lived and worked in Russia for over twenty years.

Duarte presents the hidden treasures of little known Dutch artist Anco Mali and the starter-up Philipine Vinke, both lady painters have a style of their own and deserve to be discovered by a larger public.

Duarte is owned by an art loving Dutch globe trotter who discovered contemporary Russian painters while living in Moscow. Her wish to support the painters and share the artists and their work with others is the foundation of Duarte Online Gallery.

All art comes with a certificate of Authenticity signed either by the artists themselves or by recognized art experts. If you are interested in any one of these artists or in owning a particular painting or art work, don't hesitate and get in touch.
