About the Company
Artsy was founded by Carter Cleveland as an online art resource for collecting and education purposes in 2009. The company wanted to address the lack of a universal resource for collectors and art educators to find pieces without actually going to a museum.
What’s their current status?
According to Crunchbase: Artsy last raised a $50m round where the plan is to use the investment to dive deeper into auctions, which today are the fastest-growing part of the site after the company secured partnerships with Christie’s, Sotheby’s and Phillips, the three leading brick-and-mortar auction houses.
