Helle Thygesen

The Danish antiques dealer on rare pieces and how to find them. Words by James Clasper. Photography by Christian Møller Andersen.

Helle Thygesen is a Danish art and antiques dealer. Having grown up in a family that was “very much into art,” she studied art history at university and worked at the Copenhagen gallery The Apartment from 2012 to 2014. The following year, she launched her eponymous website, where she sells a handpicked selection of modern and contemporary art and decorative objects. She lives in Copenhagen’s leafy northern suburbs.

How do you work? I browse online all day, every day. I tend to buy mostly from French and English auction houses. Now that I’ve been around for about five years I have a very good network of dealers who contact me when they have pieces they think I’ll find interesting.
