Advice on Buying

We recognise that the art market can appear opaque and complex and we aim to make it intelligible and enjoyable. For a fixed fee we research the quality, condition and market history of prospective purchases both on the private market or at auction, and give advice on the right price to pay.

We manage all negotiations, execute bids and take care of post-sale logistics. Our goal is to help our clients to build collections of enduring quality and value.

Advice on Selling

We offer informed advice on the best way to sell your works of art for the highest net financial return. There are various options: private sale, auction, through a commercial gallery or direct to an institution, and we analyse and discuss these with our clients, taking into account their individual requirements.

Valuations and Collection Management

There is responsibility associated with the ownership of a single, valuable work of art as well as with a larger collection. Care and management are important to the long-term value of both. We advise on conservation and restoration, framing, security, insurance, museum loans and transportation. We also provide professional expertise on hanging and the display of works of art.

Valuations for all purposes are undertaken, including equable family division.
