Established in 2012 by Carlo Milano, Callisto Fine Arts specialises in European sculpture and works of art, and in Old Master paintings, with a focus on the Italian school. The name of the gallery originates from the Greek word ‘Kállistos’, which means ‘the most beautiful’.
This association perfectly explains the mission of the gallery, which is to source and present masterpieces of the finest quality.
As art historian, Carlo Milano publishes and lectures on Italian Baroque sculpture. Accurate research is pivotal to his work, for which he frequently collaborates with leading international specialists.
A highly knowledgeable art dealer, Milano has been working in the market for over 15 years, and during his career he has discovered sculptures that are now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (Lacma), and in prestigious private and public collections worldwide.
Callisto participates to major international fairs, such as London Art Week, Modenantiquaria, Fine Arts Paris, Frieze Masters, BRAFA, the Biennale of Palazzo Corsini in Florence, and Flashback in Turin. Since October 2020, Callisto has moved to new premises in 44 Duke Street, in the heart of St James’s.
