No paintings. Why?
Every year tens of millions of works of art pass from hand to hand, more than half of these fall under the category of antique, modern art and design. Monitoring the movement of these objects is a real challenge.
There already exist many databases dedicated to paintings (these are relatively simple to produce, as they only include paintings with certified or attributed authorship).
On the other hand, before the launch of NTQ Database the more challenging antique sector had not yet been systematically monitored.
Always up to date
NTQ Database is constantly being updated.
Auction results are added within the first 24 hours after the release of sale results by the auction house.
An important archive
NTQ Database stores data for up to 5 years. It is an appropriate period of time to analyse trends in the art market.
Why NTQ Database?
Not only is NTQ Database the first online data bank to specialise in antiques and design works of art, but it is also an important tool for understanding more specifically International art markets.
