Art Valuations

Our consultants will provide you with the art valuation expertise you need – from estate to divorce settlements.

Buying and Selling Art

We advise on value and discreetly broker the sale or purchase of a single artwork or an entire collection, and investigate the value of your art to maximise the return on sale.
We, as your advisors and dealers will provide you with due diligence before you buy or sell art to help you avoid potentially costly mistakes.

Deceased Estate Valuations

With an inheritance or family division of artworks, antiques and other treasures, comes the often overwhelming task of trying to not only sort through, but also deciding how they are shared. While inherited collections come with a great deal of sentimental value, the determination of the financial value is often required to ensure the fair distribution of assets for all family members.
