I have had the absolute pleasure of working with Robin Rosenberg who has played an instrumental role in divesting masterworks from my family’s estate, including major blue chip paintings and sculptures of international significance. Robin has an impressive network of contacts in the artworld and is an astute dealer with extensive knowledge of the current market. She is a true professional, with integrity and discretion.
For one particularly significant painting in the collection, Robin assessed the painting’s condition, rarity and current market value and convinced us that its value far exceeded our initial valuation. Furthermore, she carried out proper due diligence into the historic significance of the piece and discovered the painting was once acquired by world famous Swiss collector, Ernst Beyeler. This key piece of information regarding provenance added even more value to the artwork. Ultimately, Robin carried through on her promise and did, indeed, sell the painting for more than we anticipated.
I have also worked with Robin to acquire art and I have had equally positive experiences as a buyer as I did as a seller. Robin has a keen eye and an incredible knowledgebase that ensures that one’s art purchase will be an astute one.
In all respects, Robin has far exceeded my expectations, and I set the bar high.
In the ever-changing art world, every acquisition is a learning experience. Connecting with Robin has been great to help navigate this market. She is highly knowledgeable, and able to discuss any subject relating to artists, history, quality, and value. It is a pleasure to test the breadth of her expertise. Also, in my 40 years as a collector, I can say that establishing a trusting relationship with an art dealer is essential. This was effortless with Robin. She has been a true asset in enhancing my collection.
I had the pleasure of working with Robin to purchase art for my condo. I was so pleased with the experience and the result! Robin was able to assist me in identifying my likes/dislikes, price point and provide fabulous options and close the purchase on advantageous terms. I needed a turn a turn-key solution and Robin provided it, with consummate professionalism and her good nature.
I began working with Robin Rosenberg upon completion of major renovations to my country house, at which time all of my walls needed artwork. My collaboration with Robin on this project was an absolute pleasure (and a lot of fun!). She is knowledgeable, extraordinarily professional and very well connected in the art world. She has a keen eye, a good understanding of her clients’ taste and budget and she genuinely loves making her clients happy. She provided me with comprehensive and responsive service, from scouting out potential works to helping choose a frame, to overseeing the installation, and she was always available to answer any questions or address any concerns along the way. I’m delighted with my acquisitions which have beautifully enhanced my home and provided me with enormous satisfaction, and I credit Robin for being instrumental in finding the perfect original piece for each space.

As an interior designer, I was first introduced to Mrs. Robin Rosenberg by a client of mine in need of art for one of her properties. My very first experience with an art consultant…
I was highly impressed by both the person, she is an energy bomb, but also by her profound desire to satisfy her client’s taste. Mrs. Rosenberg is extremely knowledgeable in the visual arts world i.e. paintings, lithographs, 3D and video art as well as photography.
Her approach is very generous, we were presented with a multitude of very diversified pieces, all of them keeping in mind the client’s own taste and budget. This opened a plethora of possibilities, most of which we would have never thought of. My client was able to start a very beautiful personal collection of great pieces. One also has to mention Mrs. Rosenberg’s assistant, Lauren, a young woman with a very mature, great sense of taste for her young age.
All in all, a very, very positive experience which I highly recommend. Absolutely!

Robin was instrumental in DANAWARES starting a contemporary art collection. The main rationale for this effort was to enhance the beauty of our offices for the benefit of our staff. This investment had resulted in our personnel being able to not only enjoy this beautiful art but to be reminded of their value to our firm, as ninety percent of the collection is not in space visited by clients.
Robin’s continued research and her knowledge and enthusiasm of art has been a tremendous help to our collecting efforts. She’s a pleasure to work with.

I have been collecting art for many years. I’ve worked with several art professionals who have helped me build my extensive Canadian art collection. Robin Rosenberg is honest and honorable and in my estimation is top notch in the art world of Montreal. Regardless if you are buying or selling, Robin and her team do their due diligence to ensure that works of art are priced fairly, and buyers and sellers alike get good value. Robin’s expertise is invaluable, and I highly recommend Robin Rosenberg Fine Art to anyone who is serious about collecting quality art.
I have known Robin for many years. From our children taking ski lessons together to the years she worked as a professional fundraiser.
When we needed art for our new home in Montreal, I knew Robin was the go-to person to help guide and source artwork for us. We have purchased several works of art through Robin and we love each and every piece. The artwork has enhanced the cool and contemporary look our home reflects.
Robin always kept us in mind when she traveled to the international art fairs. When Robin called us from out of town about a sculptural work she found for the stone wall in our dining room, because of the immense trust we had in her, we were comfortable confirming the purchase right then and there, sight unseen and we were thrilled when it arrived.
Robin is a pleasure to work with, she does her research to find the best value and gets to know her clients’ tastes without putting any pressure on them. She is very knowledgeable, is honest and professional.

We received a wedding present of a piece of artwork of our choosing. Never having purchased artwork before, we were pretty confused not only about what type of piece to get, but even just where to begin looking. Robin was appropriately persistent, yet extremely patient throughout the whole process (which spanned over a year since we were very unsure about what would look best in our apartment and needed to operate within the budgeted range of the gift).
Robin was fun and friendly to talk to and was always so generous in answering our numerous questions and educating us about what constitutes a good purchase and what purchases do not justify their high cost.
We would strongly recommend Robin to anyone, and we loved how amenable she was advising us in person or remotely via phone and e-mail.

I have been working with Robin Rosenberg over the past 6 years as I have wanted to deaccession certain works in a very extensive and fine collection of Canadian art.
Working with Robin has been a total pleasure: she is extremely knowledgeable, has a large client base and most importantly is a woman of great integrity – qualities very hard to come by in this arena. I consider myself fortunate indeed for our paths to have crossed!
Robin’s knowledge, guidance, and passion has inspired my love of modern and contemporary art. Robin’s experience and connections has demystified the art of collecting art.
We recently undertook an expansion of our production facility, including adding a significant amount of office space. We had a vision to create an atmosphere that reflected the fun food that we produce. Robin took on the challenge with enthusiasm and energy. She completely understood our vision and our budget. Her research led to the discovery of artists that we never would have found or thought of ourselves.
The result is an atmosphere that is light, energetic and completely integrates with our brand and image.
The artwork has been praised by visitors (suppliers, customers, professionals…) and is greatly appreciated by our employees, who enjoy being surrounded by beautiful artwork.
Robin and her team were very hands on. They sourced the artwork, negotiated pricing, chose the framing and then oversaw the installation. It was a full service approach that exactly matched our needs.
We were very pleased with the final results.
