A unique alliance between the technology of Arteïa and the premium content of Cahiers d’Art, “RAISONLINE by Cahiers d’Art” is a digital catalogue raisonné solution anchored to the Blockchain, which will set a benchmark for art market professionals, artists and collectors.

Cahiers d’Art, the celebrated publishers of catalogues raisonnés by Pablo Picasso, Ellsworth Kelly and soon Frank Gehry, has called on Arteïa’s technology, the ultimate cataloging solution for managing the value of an art collection.

“RAISONLINE by Cahiers d’Art digital” proposes a universal solution to artists and art market professionals – print and digital – unique to the art market for the creation of catalogues raisonnés. This is thanks to a double competence; the artistic and editorial know-how of Cahiers d’Art, teamed with the technological expertise of Arteïa.

Through RAISONLINE, Cahiers d’Art and Arteïa offer, for the first time, a benchmark in the creation of digital catalogue raisonnés enabling, thanks to the Blockchain, storage of data containing the existence and the provenance of artworks in total security, with the information directly approved by the artists or their estates.

Cahiers d’Art was founded in 1926 by Christian Zervos at 14 rue du Dragon in the heart of Paris’ Saint-Germain-desPrés quarter. Under the leadership of Staffan Ahrenberg, it today remains, not only a review but also a publishing house and a gallery.

Alongside its best-known catalogues raisonnés of Picasso, Kelly and Gehry, the house directly collaborates with artists and their estates to produce limited editions, reviews, monographs, and lithographs.

Arteïa.com was founded in 2016 by Philippe Gellman, Marek Zabicki, Olivier Marian and Hugues & Reine-Marie Taittinger, all art collectors and key figures at the forefront of the worlds of art and business.

Arteïa offers collectors an ultra-secure cataloging solution, that is comprehensive and intuitive, facilitating inventory management, visualisation, logistics, and financial optimisation, whilst giving users the ability to share collections with the assurance of total confidentiality.

Arteïa has a team of 20 developers who have been focused on the optimisation of the platform for two years. Arteïa is accessible by subscription through the site Arteïa.com.
