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.

“David and Brigitte have provided an exemplary service over many years in support of our art investments – we have not only profited from their advice in buying and selling both privately and at auction but we have a beautiful collection to show for it which we enjoy every day. Together with this they have helped us learn so much more about both Australian and international art – allowing our appreciation and knowledge to grow with our passion. Highly recommended!”
