These General Terms and Conditions govern the services offered by our Gallery's Website and they apply to all product sales between the Seller and a Buyer that are made via this online service.

The Conclusion of a Sales Contract between the Seller and a Buyer 

All Artworks on the Site are presented with the artist's agreement. To help the Buyer, each Artwork is accompanied by a description (characteristics and price).


A Buyer can thus select the Artwork they wish to purchase. Once selected, a Buyer must confirm their choice. The Buyer acknowledges and accepts these Terms and Conditions by clicking a confirmation button. The Buyer then chooses one of the payment options offered by this Site. If they choose to make their payment by bank card, payment will be immediately. If they choose payment by bank transfer, the transfer must be made as soon as possible so that payment is actually received into the Gallery's bank account within four working days. If a price is quoted, payment must be made by credit card. 


Once an Order has been placed, the Buyer will receive an e-mail confirming the Offer or the Order. A Sales Contract only becomes valid once the availability of the Artwork has been confirmed or the Offer has been accepted and the bank transfer has been received, should the Buyer choose this method of payment.


The Gallery informs the selling Artist, that one or more of their Artworks placed online has or have received an Order. The selling Artist has undertaken to confirm the availability or the price of the Artworks ordered by the Buyer within five days of receiving this information. If an Artwork receives several Orders by several buyers, depending on availability, the Sale will be concluded with the first Buyer to have registered their Order. The other potential Purchasers will be informed. Once the availability of an Artwork has been established and/or the Price Offer has been agreed to by the Artist, the Site will send an e-mail to the Buyer informing them of the Artwork’s availability and whether or not the Price Offer has been accepted.


Once an Offer has been accepted and the Artwork becomes available, the above condition subsequent attached to the Sales Contract concluded between the Buyer and the Artist shall be lifted. The Artist then undertakes to deliver the Artwork or make it available at a specified address within a certain period, as agreed between the parties.


In the absence of any confirmation or if the Gallery doesn't receive the transfer within five working days from the Order validation date, the contract between the Purchaser and the Artist shall be automatically terminated and each party shall be released from their obligations. In particular, the Purchaser will be reimbursed the price of the Artwork.   

Return and Refund Policy

RETURNS: The Buyer has 14 calendar days to return an Artwork, starting from the date it was received.


To be eligible for a return, the Artwork received must be unused and in the same condition as when received. The Artwork must be in its original packaging and be accompanied by a receipt or proof of purchase. Once the Gallery receives returned Artwork, we will inform the Buyer that the returned Artwork has been received and inspect it. After inspecting the Artwork, we will immediately inform the Buyer of the refund situation. If a return is approved, we will refund the cost of the Artwork and shipping charges to the Buyer’s credit card (or to the original method of payment). Refunds will be received within a number of days, depending on the card issuer's policies.


All purchases are processed within 1 to 3 weeks. Please allow extra days for delivery transit. In the event of a significant delay in shipment, the Buyer will be contacted by e-mail or telephone.

Delivery Charges

Purchase delivery costs will be calculated and displayed on the Site checkout. Once an Order has been dispatched, the Buyer will receive a dispatch confirmation e-mail containing the tracking number(s).
