We help you Buy Modern Contemporary Art Online

Who we are?

Composition.Gallery is an online gallery where exceptional artworks, paintings, prints, and sculptures from the world’s renowned artists come together. Our strictly curated collection distinguishes us. Instead of sifting through thousands of pieces online, we offer a selection that is worthy of museum display, ensuring each artwork adheres to the highest standards of authenticity, appropriate pricing, and artist curation. Catering to a global audience of over 50,000 art enthusiasts, we invite you to discover and acquire timeless art that represents the pinnacle of artistic excellence, exclusively at Composition.Gallery.


We offer combined shipping options depending on the location of the artworks. If multiple pieces you wish to purchase are housed in the same location, we can facilitate consolidating them into a single shipment for your convenience. 

We can accept payments in the following currencies: EUR, USD, GBP and AUD. 

Our listed works are located in many different countries across the world, so it is not always possible for us to facilitate a viewing prior to the purchase. However, if a particular work is located near you, we may be able to arrange an appointment – please contact us with your requests, we can then review and respond as soon as possible. If an appointment is unavailable, you are able to use our ‘zoom’ and ‘view in a room’ features for a more detailed and contextual view of an artwork. 

Yes, we offer the service of art valuations for modern and contemporary art. Our service includes an estimate of the current price, supported by thorough research and market analysis. The fee ranges from 100 USD to 150 USD per artwork, depending on the complexity.

Our prices will either match, or be lower than the price you would expect to find in galleries. 
Pricing is determined by a number of different factors; among the factors that affect pricing are: the size of the artwork, the medium, the popularity of the artist (as well as their rating at the point of sale), the overall quality of the work and the importance of the work in terms of an artist’s overall oeuvre.  
We take great pride in the accuracy and fairness of our pricing system and we also encourage our sellers to be realistic in their expectations when setting a price for an artwork. 

If you are looking for works from a particular artist, there may be occasions where we don’t have any listed – in such instances, you can set an alert so that you receive a notification when new artworks become available. To do this, please visit the artist or the artwork page and click the button that reads ‘update me’. 

Most listed works are immediately available for purchase unless marked as ‘sold’ or ‘currently unavailable’. We maintain direct updates on the availability of artworks and our sales process is structured to confirm an item’s availability before finalizing any purchase. On rare occasions, the status of an artwork as ‘sold’ may not be updated instantaneously.

Yes. The Composition Gallery team has facilitated thousands of artwork sales with collectors from all over the world. We developed a trust system specifically for the art market, to make collecting high caliber artists as easy as possible. 

Many of the artworks featured are offered at a fixed price, reflecting our commitment to providing competitive rates through efficient collaboration with galleries, publishers, and artists. Our pricing strategy aims to minimize operational costs, allowing us to work with small margins and offer you prices that are equal to or lower than what you might find in a traditional gallery setting. For certain artworks, we welcome offers below the listed price. In such cases, we assess each offer's feasibility based on our pricing structure and margin considerations. Additionally, some pieces may be accompanied by a ‘make an offer’ option, inviting you to propose your price for these artworks.

In the art industry, artworks may be labeled ‘price on demand’ when the value has not been finalized at the time of listing on our website. This is particularly common for pieces by artists who are currently experiencing high demand. The price for these items may be determined and listed at a later date.
Furthermore, the art market is dynamic and subject to frequent changes. Due to this volatility, we may choose not to set a fixed price immediately to remain flexible in response to market trends. Prices for artworks can fluctuate, meaning the value of an artwork listed today might differ tomorrow.

We take great care in selecting the sources from which we source our artworks, ensuring they are among the most reputable and reliable in the art world. We are proud of our ability to guarantee that every artwork listed on Composition.Gallery is obtained from trustworthy and esteemed sources.
Every item for sale is signed by the original artist, and the majority come with a certificate of authenticity (COA). These certificates are endorsed by the artist, the artist’s representative, or directly from the source, serving as a legal document alongside the invoice to certify the authenticity of the work. The certificate is usually sent to the buyer once the artwork has been delivered.

A framing service is not something that we currently offer due to the heightened risk of damage during shipping; transportation costs would also increase due to the additional weight of a frame. However, if you are interested in framing your purchased artwork, please feel free to get in touch with us and we will source a reputable framing service local to you. 

Logging in to the site is not necessary in order to complete a purchase – simply select the BUY option listed against an artwork and fill in your details on the form that appears. Upon receiving your details, we will respond as soon as possible to finalise the purchase with you.

We believe that purchasing an artwork of art is a special occasion for many people and as a result, our site does not include registration forms, a shopping cart or credit-card entries. Upon confirming your purchase, we will provide you with a gallery invoice, alongside instructions for a bankwire payment – this is available in EUR, USD, GBP or AUD. 
In certain cases, we may be able to accept cash and/or credit card payments – a 2.7% fee is added to such transactions. 
Please also note that the purchase must be paid in full before we can ship an artwork. 

Artworks sold through Composition.Gallery are not eligible to be returned, nor can they be cancelled at any point once an order has been confirmed– all sales are complete and final at the point of purchase.  
However, if you receive your order and feel that it differs from its description or has been damaged during shipping, then please contact us immediately - please note that any claims of this kind must be made within 5 days of receipt. 

Certain artworks are listed as 'private listings' to maintain exclusivity or the privacy associated with these pieces. This means that details and images of the artwork are not immediately visible on our website until an explicit request for access has been made.  Upon request, we provide interested parties with a comprehensive view of the piece, including an image and information, along with the option to proceed with a purchase.

We will provide you with an electronic invoice via E-mail once your order is confirmed. 

We do not include shipping costs in the listed price as many variables can affect the cost of shipping; the weight, price and dimensions of an item will all affect this cost, as will the item’s origin and its shipping destination.
 If you require an estimation of shipping costs on a particular item of interest, please get in touch via and we can assist you with your query. 

Yes, we are able to ship most unframed artworks to any destination across the world – if you are unsure about a particular destination, please contact us. 

Most artworks are transported via express couriers such as UPS, DHL, FedEx and TNT – the exact courier depends on the item’s origin as well as its final destination. 
We will always endeavor to offer you the most economical service. 

Of course. We will discuss and arrange the practical aspects - such as the pick-up location and time - when we finalise your purchase.

Many of our artworks are located and displayed in various galleries around the world. If you are local to the gallery hosting your chosen artwork, please contact us. We will facilitate a connection with our colleague gallery that is currently housing the artwork. This will allow you to coordinate directly with them to arrange a suitable date and time for you to collect your purchase.

Once an order has been finalised, we are not able to facilitate any returns or cancellations on any of our listed artworks.
However, if you feel that your purchase has been damaged during transportation, or is unlike its original description, then please contact us within 5 days of receipt at  

Once the artwork has been collected for delivery, we will provide you with a unique tracking number.
Additionally, we strongly recommend signing up for email and/or SMS notifications directly through the courier to receive real-time updates on the status of your delivery.

No, this is not something that can be facilitated – for the purposes of security and liability, all artworks require a signature upon receipt. 

Although our partners are experienced in shipping artworks securely and correctly, there is still a possibility that damage may occur during transportation. 
If you notice that the packaging is damaged in any way, please include details on the courier’s delivery report and send us the details, alongside images, by emailing us at 
The same applies to any damage found on the actual artwork or cases in which the item shipped differs from the item you expected – all claims must be made within 5 days of receipt. 

Most couriers will attempt to deliver your purchase a second time and/or leave a note. If you miss an attempted delivery, you can contact the courier, quoting the unique tracking number, and organise a new delivery time. 
If you are unable to receive your purchase, the item will be sent back to the seller and you will be liable to pay any additional shipping fees. If, for any reason, you will not be able to receive your artwork in person, please contact us immediately at 

We always endeavour to get any purchased items sent out as soon as possible, but we must first make sure that all shipping documentation and packaging have been sufficiently prepared.
Please also note that various factors, such as the origin and the final destination of the artwork, have a significant bearing on the delivery timeframe. Overall, most artworks are dispatched within 5 working days once the full payment has been received.  

Please take care when unpacking and handling artworks – to ensure your artwork remains in great condition during unpacking, we recommend the following steps:                                    

1. Before unpacking, ensure you thoroughly check the parcel for any external damages – if you happen to find any, please take several clear images from a number of angles. 
2. Remove each individual layer of packing material slowly and carefully – ensure that the outermost layer is removed prior to proceeding to the inner layers.  A sharp utility knife can be used to cut the tape on both the outer and inner packaging; the blade should be only just long enough to cut cleanly through the tape.  
3. Always use gloves when handling artworks. If you remove the artwork from the provided packaging without wearing any gloves, there’s a chance of irreparable damage to it in the form of visible fingerprints or stains.  
4. Thoroughly check the entire contents of your shipment – multiple artworks may be delivered in one package, or the parcel itself may contain additional components or the appropriate documentation. If your work arrives in a wooden crate, you may need to use standard drill bits in order to remove any screws from the lid; never attempt to pry the lid open. Please also note that larger crates may require more than one person to be safely opened. 
If your artwork is packaged in a tube, avoid pinching or pulling on the work itself – try to keep a hold on the inner layer of protective paper in the tube when removing the artwork.  
5. Once your artwork has been unpacked, please confirm the condition it has arrived in. If you feel that the work you have received differs from the online description, please send images of the item alongside the original packaging and a detailed summary of its current condition and any discrepancies to - we kindly ask that any contact of this kind is made within 5 days of receiving the work, and that all original packaging is kept for reference. 

The security and confidentiality of any personal data is of utmost importance to us and we can assure you that this data is never passed on to any third parties. Our site is secure and all personal information provided will be handled in a secure and private manner and will not be visible to any other users of our site. For more detailed information on how we handle personal data, please read our Privacy Policy.

If an artwork is shipped across country borders then you may incur an additional tax charge known as import or customs duty; the terms of these taxes can vary according to country regulations and the product that is being shipped. In the case of both the proprietor and the buyer residing within the EU, no import taxes will be applied and artworks being sent into the USA from other countries will also be free of import duty in most circumstances.
We are unfortunately unable to guarantee any specific tax rates or amounts for our listed items, so please seek more details about applicable duties and taxes with your local customs office.
