‘Art is the most fertile tool… it lightens our lives and gives us pleasure,’ says German-born NineAM founder Bettina von Hase. She has just returned from an ‘art fair marathon’, including the Venice Biennale, Dokumenta, Munster and Basel among others, where she goes in order to scope out talent for her clients. ‘There are some extraordinary voices, particularly in the emerging market, and a rediscovery of artists from the 60s, 70s, 80s,’ observes von Hase, who has specialised in European, American and South American contemporary and modern art for three decades. Alongside her advisory work, von Hase has become a trustee and chair of patrons at the Royal Drawing School. She is also a trustee of The Art Room charity.
