About

We give discreet and professional advice to collectors, both private and corporate. We help you to start, maintain and build your collection, finding from one particular piece to a group of works to suit your budget and vision.

Curating from the collector’s perspective, rather than representing selected artists, Julia Meintjes Fine Art works directly with a broad range of artists, galleries, museums and auction houses, amongst others, to procure, exhibit, evaluate or sell works.

Our knowledge extends primarily to contemporary and historical South African art, and increasingly we are connecting with our African continent. Art is made in traditional and new media, and artists are both self-taught and professionally-trained. We like to build connections for you, the collector and lover of art, between these diversities.

We are based in Johannesburg and Cape Town, and work with clients in South Africa and abroad. We aim to provide a friendly and accessible environment for artists and established collectors, as well as for those wanting to look at and learn about art.

The opacity of the art market can be daunting. At Julia Meintjes Fine Art our collaboration with you will always be ethical and transparent. Here’s what we can do to help you:
