JANUS ARTS: YOUR PRIVATE CONTEMPORARY ART DEALER LONDON
MARK FRANCIS (B. 1962)
PASSAGE (2), 1993
SIGNED AND TITLED
OIL ON CANVAS
Acclaimed for his optically intense abstract paintings of magnified cells and microbes, Francis’ alla prima technique blurs tone and form to create photographic-like works of glowing light. Aligned with the Young British Artists of the 1990s (whose luminaries include Tracey Emin, Damien Hirst and Grayson Perry), his increasingly sought-after work can be found in London’s Tate Gallery and San Francisco’s de Young Museum.

NAVIGATING THE FINE ART MARKETS
Whether you want to buy contemporary art through private sales or art auctions, navigating the fine art markets isn’t easy. Sure, it’s relatively simple for inexperienced collectors to buy affordable art like limited-edition prints. But start searching for individual works by respected British artists —David Hockney, say, or St Ives School luminary, Sir Terry Frost — and things get much harder. That’s when our Contemporary Art Dealer, London services prove invaluable. Our contacts stretch back decades through to the present day. Tell us what you want, and we’ll find it.
HELP BUYING MODERN ART AT AUCTION
London, Hong Kong, New York…no matter the city, buying modern art at auction can be a minefield. Remember:
- Auctioneers are the Estate Agents of the art world
- They work on behalf of the seller
- They don’t care if you overspend
- They want you to overspend
Having worked for the leading auction houses, we know all the tricks of the trade. And how not to fall for them! We’ll show you how to make auctions work for you.

YOUR GUIDE TO THE INTERNATIONAL ART WORLD
ARCOmadrid. Art Basel. TEFAF Maastrict. The number of contemporary art fairs and auctions a year can be overwhelming. So, choose wisely: let Janus Arts guide you through the upcoming international art season. We’ll steer you to the shows, sales, and individual artworks that you can’t afford to miss.
GET EXCLUSIVE ACCESS TO PRIVATE ART COLLECTORS
Sometimes, it’s not what you know. It’s who you know. Our excellent contemporary art contacts will give you access to an elite network of private collectors. Whether you’re buying or selling, we know the person you need to know.
INVESTING IN INTERNATIONAL ART
Our services aren’t restricted to British art. We’ll advise you on international sales and purchases, too. Obvious world-famous international contemporary artists include Jeff Koons, Christopher Wool, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Their work is hugely fashionable but comes with a price to match. For a safer bet, look to the reliable investment value of 20th-century Impressionist and post-impressionist art. A fabulous little Degas gouache or Matisse pen and ink line drawing can cost a fraction of the price of a large contemporary canvas. Unlike contemporary art (the stocks and shares of the art world), these older works offer no risk at all. Just like a bond their worth is sure to go up, slowly but surely.
