Emanuel von Baeyer London is proud to have been publishing dedicated catalogues for over 20 years. We have always produced catalogues with academic rigour and on a range of art historical topics of interest.

Preservation of the printed matter is important to us and for this reason our catalogues are only available in print, not online. They adorn bookshelves around the world and we are happy that they continue to be sources of reference for us and our colleagues.

For the IFPDA Online Viewing Room, we have made a selection of 10 works which have been published in our catalogues from the last 10 years on a variety of historical areas.

As the IFPDA is the largest and most well-known platform for commercial connoisseurship in the print world, we thought a celebration of print to be most fitting.
