Frederick Mulder awarded 'Eminence Grise' in The Spear's 500 by Frederick Mulder

Described as "Europe’s definitive guide to the top wealth managers, lawyers and advisers for HNW individuals", we are delighted to be included in the second edition of The Spear's 500. Listed under the Art Advisor's section, Frederick Mulder has been awarded the status of 'Eminence Grise', and is the only print-specific specialist listed.

"Mulder has spent the 40 years of his career celebrating and promoting the diversity, originality and beauty of the printed medium, whether etching, lithograph or other technique. He started spanning the entire history of printmaking, from the 1460s to his day, but now he specialises in Picasso, whose prints often came out in editions of 50. That doesn’t make them easy to acquire, however, price aside: many prints ‘are still disappearing at an enormous rate into institutions’ who can’t afford original paintings or drawings, thus perhaps only half of an edition is still in private hands..."

" 到埗第一天,朋友用Whatsapp提醒我:Tate Modern正展出Matisse Cut-outs(剪紙作)!野獸派領頭人Matisse(馬蒂斯)晚年天天都在剪紙,這些幾乎是他最具童心、最爐火純青的作品,馬上去看!展覽很大型,展出都是精品,震撼很深!想不到第二天去ML傳媒預展,入場不久就看到Matisse的Cut-outs有售!而且明碼實價,嚇親我!一張42.2 x 65.1cm的原作,大概售價是8,000-1,1900英鎊不等(未連稅),即約十萬港元起跳,老實說,比起好多年輕藝術家的作品都要抵買。參展商Frederick Mulder Ltd是一家英國Gallery,藝廊總監Anne-Francoise Gavanon:「我們其實是第一年參展,我們公司由Dr. Frederick Mulder在45年前創辦,我們的專長其實是販賣歐洲名家的版畫,包括Rembrandt、Picasso等等,我們擁有一些十分有名的版畫,包括畢卡索最著名、最多人找的作品《 La Minotauromachie》。」談到Matisse的Cut-outs,她說:「這些Cut-outs,是當年Matisse替《Jazz》這本書做美術的作品,由於當時是1943年戰時,物資匱乏,到成書時,已是1947年。Matisse使用的是所謂Pochoir的Stencil技巧,《Jazz》是當年最多人搜購的一本好書。」Frederick Mulder與畢卡索的一些好友關係良好,於是,畢卡索作品也成了他們的專長,他們的客人,包括MOMA、波士頓藝術博物館,近日甚至替大英博物館購入一些畢卡索作品。"
