ART ACQUISITION SERVICES

For our clients who wish to begin a collection or to develop their current inventory, Art Peritus provides expertise, guidance, and support. After meeting with the client and discussing the desired investment, time speculation, tax issues and overall goal for the collection, we research suitable objects that are in keeping with this criteria. Since we do not maintain an inventory, we are able to present our clients with unbiased opinions of the quality, authenticity and value of objects presented for purchase. We will provide a variety of different options together with a complete understanding of the methods used to arrive at a decision before making a purchase.

We use our know-how and strong working relationships with dealers and auction houses to select and present the best art available in the current market.

Upon request we will research for and identify objects to fit your specifications and we will consistently share our expertise with you during the collection building process.

Art Peritus allows collectors to plan and develop their collections using the following services:

  • Targeted Worldwide Object Searches
  • Art Market Trend Analyses
  • Research of Current Values, State of the Market, and Sales Venues
  • Confirmation of Object Quality, Authenticity, Condition, Rarity and Provenance
  • Negotiation of Terms of Purchase
  • Bid and/or Purchase Recommendations
