We love art!
On this site we, as studied art historians, do what we do best: we describe, analyze and compare works of art. Each of us has his own handwriting and of course his individual focus. In addition, we also do a lot "offline": workshops, guided tours, lectures as well as copywriting and editing are also part of our activities.
The artinspector was founded in 2013 as a two-person company, which has developed steadily over the next few years and now, in 2021, finally is published also in an english version. If you are an art historian yourself and are interested in seeing your texts published here, please send us an email. We also welcome feedback, questions and comments. Have fun on our site...

Our project has existed for many years. Of course, life paths have also parted. Nevertheless, our gratitude also goes to all the people who have supported us along the way.
Glenn has been living in Frankfurt am Main for three years in order to pursue his studies in secondary education. During his studies, he was missing the artistic-acting aspect in his life. Therefore, in 2018 he began training as a voice actor, which he completed with enthusiasm. Now he puts his skills into the texts of the-artinspector.
