We give expert testimony in disputes surrounding the identity and value of personal property in dispute, for both claimants and defendants.
We regularly advise clients as “in-house” curators and monitor market trends. We seek out offerings within your fields of interest and collecting preferences, as well as to represent you in acquisitions and deaccessions. We interface with dealers, auctioneers, shippers, and other professionals to ensure that all aspects of your art collecting endeavors are attended to.
Like any other asset class, it may be useful to plot the historic performance of specific artists or schools of art. We research and graph the marketplace for those areas of interest to illustrate growth or decline for specific things. As is with the equities field, past performance is no guarantee of future performance, but 20/20 hindsight may aid the collector in deciding when to buy and sell.
