Thomas Deprez Fine Arts offers an eclectic selection of high quality paintings, drawings and sculptures, and a wide range of bespoke services to assist the serious collector in pursuing their passion. Active in a niche market of growing popularity, we passionately promote high-end Belgian art from the fin-de-siècle, with a special interest in the Symbolist movement and important artist's societies such as 'Les XX' and 'Vie et Lumière'. In our active search for the most interesting and desirable works of Belgian art through the centuries, we find guidance in quality and rarity, and do so through extensive art historical research.
Collectors ourselves, we find pleasure in both rediscovering artists and recontextualising undervalued bodies of work, as in finding the purest examples of an art historical movement. Our inventory will deliberately remain highly eclectic, with works across all price ranges, providing a wealth of opportunities for new and established collectors to rediscover the richness and diversity of Belgian art.
As an art historian, Thomas Deprez holds his MA degree in Fine Arts from Ghent University, where he graduated Magna cum laude and wrote a dissertation on the Belgian artist Evariste Carpentier (1845-1922).
Upon graduation, an independent art business was established which concentrates its efforts on his two-sided passion for business and art. Besides an inventory of carefully selected Belgian art from the 19th and 20th Century, services are offered including consultancy, independent art historical research, freelance writing and curatorship, and the management of private art collections.
Growing up between masterpieces of artists largely forgotten by the national and international canon, his eye was formed through quality rather than renowned names. A collector at heart, Thomas Deprez carefully selects his acquisitions on the basis of three criteria: beauty, quality and its historical value. His expertise in the field of Belgian 19th and 20th century art is both manifested in and grows from the thorough researching of every individual work. An internship at a well-respected gallery in St. James's, London, proved decisive in his commitment to the art market.
