Rolf Laimbock

I am an inspired art historian with a nice voice and passion for details, background stories and anecdotes. Besides the nice stories about the pieces of art I regale you with, I will be asking questions to create a pleasant interaction about art. 

Appreciating art together will be a win-win for both of us. You will become more alert, critical and even more empathetic. I will make this experience memorable for you by telling you exactly the things you always wanted to know and see.
