In order to comply with EU legislation, we are legally required to obtain and check identity documents for all of our customers who purchase a piece of art worth €10,000 or more from us, or who spend more than €10,000 with us in a single transaction.
In practical terms this means that we have to ask you for a copy of a valid photo identity document, such as a passport, driving license or national ID card so that we have proof of your full name, date of birth, nationality and address on record.
This must be a photo or a clear scan of your document. It cannot be a photo of your identity document a screen, like your laptop or your phone.
If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate in contacting us to discuss them.
