Thirty years ago we started our first Ancient Art Gallery. Now it’s located in the centre of Antwerp nearby the riverside, not far from the medieval cathedral and the famous renaissance town hall.
We are dealing in ancient art from the Egyptian-, Greek-, and Roman civilisation as well in very early Christian- and medieval works of art.

Karl Stimm studied at the University of Nijmegen in the Netherlands and graduated from university with a Master degree in Archaeology and History of Art.
