  • Our story

    • 1989

      1989

      Founder Peter Chater joined the fledgling Karsten Schubert Gallery in London. His years as a Gallery Manager and then Director gave him a solid understanding of the art business and he set about streamlining the gallery workflow through computerisation.

    • 1990

      1990

      Peter started working on a contacts database, the first component in what would soon become a fully-fledged art gallery database solution. He named his new system 'Artlogic' and it quickly drew the attention of other London art dealers like Victoria Miro who, at that time, occupied a small gallery in Cork Street, London.

      1994

      In 1994, with an increasing number of clients eager to buy the system, Peter left Karsten Schubert Gallery to set up his own business, trading as Artlogic. He recognised immediately that the Internet could transform the way we work and became an early online database evangelist.

      With a background in the literary world and a passion for developing online information projects, David Hooper joined Peter in 1999 and together they cofounded Artlogic Media Ltd.

      2006

      By 2006, and with the backing of earlier adopters Victoria Miro Gallery in London and Hosfelt Gallery in San Francisco, the first online version of Artlogic was launched. New clients for the online version rapidly followed. "We used to call Artlogic 'the future of art gallery systems' because it was the model of how things would be, ten years later, we don't need to explain it any more." David Hooper
