VICTORIA GOLEMBIOVSKAYAFounder & CEO
Victoria Golembiovskaya is a leading art entrepreneur and consultant who is passionate about finding the unexpected and developing curatorial concepts that interweave periods and practices.

With a deep understanding of the art market and a proven track record of successful sales, Victoria is able to connect collectors with works that meet their specific aesthetic and investment objectives.
She gained international recognition with her London based advisory firm House of the Nobleman, established in 2010 and known as the first advisory of its kind to transform luxury residential and commercial properties into art exhibitions of scale and featuring works of fundamental historical importance.
From 2019 until 2021, Victoria was co-CEO of Colnaghi Gallery, the world’s oldest commercial art gallery for Antiquities and Old Masters. Utilising her expertise in bridging the worlds of ancient, old masters, modern and contemporary art, she successfully refreshed the company’s structure and established its first modern and contemporary department.
Convinced that the ever-evolving art market required an agile and tailored model beyond the traditional gallery structure, Victoria launched C1760 in 2022 as an independent agency and fusing her past work and experiences with both House of the Nobleman and Colnaghi. C1760 now operates out of London and New York and continues to push the boundaries as a hybrid consultancy and gallery dedicated to providing the best possible service to their clients and partners.
