I make sure that your collection is protected in your home and in transit. If a client does not already have insurance, I collaborate with insurance professionals to set up coverage. If insurance is already in place, I make sure that the coverage is comprehensive and coordinate adding new work to the existing policy. In addition, I provide each client with an annual updated insurance inventory that can be shared with your provider to keep your coverage current.
The right frame design shows a work of art to its best advantage and relates it to the other objects in the room. I work with a number of framers, catering to different budgets, to create attractive and inventive frame designs that look amazing in my clients' homes. All of the frames I recommend use museum-quality archival methods and materials to preserve the works in your collection.
No matter how much care you take occasionally damage can occur and sometimes pieces purchased at auction are not in pristine condition. I work with specialist conservators who can make appropriate repairs to best retain the value and aesthetic of a piece.
shipping & fine art moves
My extensive experience overseeing art handling and shipping works of art assures that every piece you acquire will arrive safely at its destination – whether it needs to be transported across town or from overseas. I request and assess shipping quotes from reliable sources and carefully plan each stage of the transport to be seamless, efficient, and cost effective.
I also execute fine art moves. Works of art need special handling, and I oversee every step of the process, nail to nail, so your collection is expertly moved and installed in your new home or office.
fine art storage
It is not uncommon for works of art to be stored temporarily during residential moves and renovations, and I have ongoing relationships with a number of specialized fine art storage facilities. When work needs to be stored, I attain quotes, assess what is necessary and appropriate for your collection, and oversee the entire process.
The final and most exciting step in acquiring new artwork is the installation. In addition to using my experienced eye for perfect placement, I have extensive experience with specialized situations, such as placing outdoor sculpture or hoisting large pieces through apartment windows by crane. I work with a network of fine art professionals to provide the best installation services for my clients.
