Art Advisory Services
We offer a vital service to collectors of Modern and Contemporary international Art.
We provide expert, friendly and impartial advice on all aspects of buying, selling and collecting.
We offer our clients the chance to acquire works of art that may otherwise never be available to private buyers.
After twenty years of experience at the highest levels of the international art-market, we have the ability to go direct to private collections on behalf of our clients, bypassing auction-rooms and conventional dealers.
We also advise and act for sellers of works of art. We will advise frankly and impartially on the best method of sale, and are highly skilled in marketing and selling major paintings. We can advise upon the taxation implications of a sale, and will obtain preferential commission-rates and service from major auction-rooms if this should be the best option for sale. In any event, we will always guarantee to obtain the best possible prices for our clients.
We also organise and advise upon all the curatorial aspects of collecting art, including:
- Valuations for insurance, sale or probate
- Conservation and Restoration
- anging and presentation
- Art-transport and storage
- Cataloguing, research and private publication
- Loan negotiations with museums and galleries
In all areas of our business, we maintain the highest standards. In particular, we guarantee that, whether we are retained by the buyer or seller in any transaction, we will act uncompromisingly on our client's behalf. It is our policy not to accept payments or concessions from any other party that may be involved.
We are based in London, and visit Europe and the USA on a regular basis.
Everyone's needs and queries are different, and so we tailor our service around each individual client. If you are interested in any aspect of collecting Irish art, we hope you will contact us - our service is friendly, informal, informed and, we feel, unique.
