Entity Type
Founding Date
2017

Masterworks is the very first company to allow investors to buy and trade shares in multi-million dollar masterpieces created by world-renowned artists like Picasso, Monet, and Warhol. It utilizes a proprietary data set to understand which artist markets are accelerating the most quickly and provides the best risk-adjusted returns. Masterworks then locates and chooses the best example available by value to offer to its members.

HOW IT WORKS
