Barta & Partner.
Barta & Partner has access to an extensive network on the art market – experienced restorers and appraisers such as those working with e. g. Christie’s Expert Services, Sotheby’s or the Viennese Dorotheum. This networking ensures that Barta & Partner can serve its clients in the best possible way. Barta & Partner are member of “The Art Loss Register”, a worldwide database for registering and service for recovering stolen works of art and other valuable possessions. We work for a better and more efficient market by following the principles of independence, discretion, professionalism and honesty. With ever-changing legal landscapes, we set the highest standards of due diligence, accountability, compliance and transactional safety for both, our business partners and ourselves. We consider ourselves as custodians of historical artefacts. By carefully selecting the objects and people with whom we conduct our business, we do everything to protect both, the artwork and its owner.

Who we are.
When founding the Art-Insurance & Consulting Company Barta & Partner in 1996, Nikolaus S. Barta addressed an urgent need on the insurance market. Barta & Partner was specializing exclusively in insuring fine art, valuables and private properties. With its strong and innovative product portfolio and its unique service offers, Barta & Partner has not only become a well-established institution in the EU-market but also in Asia. Within a few years, the company has become a leading special art-insurance-company.
