The Curator's Eye Partners With Manhattan Rare Book Co. An interview focusing on the increased value and marketing reach a focused client-development platform such as The Curator's Eye can offer private dealers.
TCE: What is your most popular object on The Curatorís Eye, and why do you think it is getting such a response?
MDR: I think our most popular items on The Curatorís Eye have been our fine art books - books with original art specific to the book and signed by the artist. I think there is a nice crossover appeal in these books for the art collector as well as the book collector.
TCE: How do you think dealers can use technology to supplement their business practices?
MDR: Technology has become increasingly important in my business and companies that are slow to react do so at their own risk. Customers expect to be able to conduct business with dealers easily from around the world and technology allows us to do this.
The global reach that technology allows presents an incredible opportunity for dealers. I find I am much more concerned about my online presence than my gallery space. In terms of marketing, companies such as The Curatorís Eye, that truly have a world-wide audience, are invaluable in expanding our customer base.
The Curatorís Eye offers personalized services for dealers to find a larger international audience, and has a global team of regional and specialist dealer representatives. The site presents connoisseurs with a highly selective array of art, antiques and historic objects from the most distinguished dealers and galleries around the globe.
