ARTBUTLER was founded in Berlin in 2002 by Dirk Herzer. Ever since, our growing team of professionals with a passion for art – from developers and art market consultants to designers – has been dedicated to effectively serving our clients.

Our vision is simple: More time for art and clients! We offer comprehensive art management solutions and services tailored to the industry's unique demands.

Our products are designed for anyone professionally or passionately involved with artists or art: Galleries, artists, studios, collections, or estates. We’re also proud to count among our clients numerous institutions, universities, and partners who greatly appreciate ARTBUTLER's expertise.

We consider Berlin, with its lively art scene, as our ideal location for an inspiring exchange with the local and global art world.

Our Vision: More Time for Art and Clients

ARTBUTLER wasn’t initially conceived as a software but was developed as a consultancy project for a gallery. It soon became apparent, however, just how much potential digitalisation offers in terms of facilitating workflow on the art market, and how great was the need for a software solution at that time. ARTBUTLER Software tackles time-consuming tasks, making room for client liaisons and engagement with artists and art.

This project quickly developed into a product that was developed further and further in close cooperation with a rapidly growing number of other galleries, artists and studios and optimized for use in a wide range of practical applications.

The central idea of supporting professional art market players in their daily tasks inspired the brand name: ARTBUTLER.
