Making Art Buying an Easy and Comfortable Experience
“One can indulge his or her taste for the beautiful items at various price points at the upcoming online auction and all that from one’s armchair or boudoir. The online auction gives clients the convenience of bidding through their mobiles, tablets or laptops, without having to trek all the way to where physical auctions happen,” enthuses León Gallery Director Jaime Ponce de Leon. “This convenience makes online auctions at lower starting bids—but no less fabulous pieces—trending.”
