Appraisal and purchase of paintings at auction

With a wealth of experience assessing and purchasing 19th & 20th Century paintings at auction we can offer advice on clients' prospective purchases both at auction and from other sources. There are many factors that affect the value and desirability of paintings. We can offer our professional judgement on matters such as authenticity, condition and the value of the work.

The condition of a painting is critical when assessing its value, yet it is surprising how commonly we find that condition reports are very sketchy, providing superficial detail and very little insight. We analyse the work in gfreater depth, offering the private collector of a top art market professional, backed by experience not just in dealing in paintings but also vetting paintings at top London Fairs.

We can arrange to view paintings with you or on your behalf, we can discuss the merits of particular works of art with you and we can negotiate the purchase on your behalf. We can also administrate payment and provide estimates for restoration, framing, shipping and hanging. We can also provide less detailed reports based on digital images or photographs within the constraints that this allows.

We have experts in the field of restoration and relining paintings. We also have an excellent service or restoration and conservation of watercolours and works on paper. Our restorers are acknowledged experts with many years' experience in their field. We provide written estimates before proceeding with any restoration work.

We can also arrange professional photography for record purposes
