About Capital Art, Inc.

Capital Art, Inc. (CAPA.PK) acquires, editions and manages some of the most valuable iconic photographic images and internationally markets limited editions and reproductions created from the original negatives. The company also makes available images for publications and merchandize.

Capital Art sells and distributes classic and contemporary limited edition photographic images and reproductions with a focus on iconic celebrity images. The company already owns and/or manages an amazing array of valuable photography including the works of the late Frank Worth who was "confidant to the stars" during the golden era of Hollywood.

Investment in iconic photographic images is increasingly becoming an important component for a growing number of art collectors and investors. As photography is becoming an asset class in its own right, and with a rapidly growing middle class, the demand for iconic images should continue to increase with little new material coming to the market.

The Frank Worth Collection is composed of over 5,000 analog negatives, which also have an increasing intrinsic collectors value themselves, as digital reproduction has virtually replaced the use of original negatives.

Christie's of London, a leading auction art house, heralded the Frank Worth collection as "The most significant find of its kind in the last 50 years."

Capital Art aims to become a leading force in the international management/distribution of iconic photographic art.
