Art Collection Management
In addition to supplying and commissioning new artwork, we enjoy working with our clients to maximise and maintain their collections for the long term through our Art Collection Management Service.
When we assess an existing collection, we usually start by auditing, cataloguing and labelling the works. This assessment often leads to the creation of an on-going maintenance programme to ensure that your collection remains at its best now and into the future. We are also able to offer guidance on the valuation, insurance, loans and the sale of artworks from your collection.
Through our Art Collection Management Service we are also able to offer a full curatorial service for the day to day management of your collection as well as guidance about conservation, lighting and environmental issues. We can also undertake any re-framing and re-hanging to ensure that the potential of the collection is fully realised.
For clients who are interested in expanding or developing their art collection, we can help with budget allocations as well as assisting with each stage of the selection process.
