Specializing in manuscripts and miniatures from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, the gallery also handles rings and jewelry from the same periods. It organizes four or five exhibitions a year, some in collaboration with other dealers and some traveling to other locations, and these are often accompanied by catalogues.

International clients of the gallery include the Musée du Louvre in Paris, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, as well as many other institutional and private clients worldwide.
