Australia's Art Valuation and Art Advice Experts
Our art services are tailored to your requirements – whether you have inherited art, your company needs an art valuation for insurance. You are perhaps looking to establish current market value or are looking to sell or buy a single artwork or collection.
Contact Australia’s art valuation specialist and art advice experts. Our approach is friendly and personable yet professional and independent, enabling you to establish the true value of your art.
A professional art valuation provides you with all of the necessary information whether you decide to keep or to sell an individual artwork or collection that you own.
Our consultants will provide you with the art valuation expertise you need – from estate to divorce settlements.
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.
With an inheritance of art paintings, antiques and at times other treasures, often comes the overwhelming task of trying to not only sort through these items 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.
