Advisory Relationship

After negotiating a significant discount on a work seen at a prestigious art fair for a New York-based collector, Fine Art Asset Management worked with the client to form a thoughtfully curated collection of 19th Century landscape paintings by notable artists such as John Constable, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot and Théodore Rousseau. Over time, the collector’s tastes shifted to include antiquities and modern sculpture by artists such as Alberto Giacometti. Fine Art Asset Management maintains an active relationship with the collector, monitoring the market as to source carefully-vetted objects for consideration, as well as selling works in order to refine the collection.

Building a Private Collection

Fine Art Asset Management worked with a Midwest collector to help shape his growing art collection. Our team of experts aided him in exploring and identifying his aesthetic tastes, and consulted with an extensive network of private dealers to source high-quality, fresh-to-market material at competitive, and often discounted, prices. Our firm facilitated the logistics of each transaction for the client, including print installation, billing and shipping.

Collection Disposition

Fine Art Asset Management assisted an estate with the disposition of artwork from a large private collection that had been assembled over generations. Our specialists coordinated with senior auction house executives and private dealers, both domestic and international, to gather estimates and marketing proposals, and determined sale strategies to maximize the return for the client. The process was streamlined for the client by Fine Art Asset Management’s onsite inspections and management of invoicing and payments.

Art Appraisal and Analysis

On the recommendation of a New York-based fiduciary, Fine Art Asset Management worked with a family trust to provide both fair market and retail replacement values of art in the trust’s collection, to ensure adequate insurance coverage, and to facilitate future estate planning. Our team of experts analyzed the collection and, in conjunction with financial professionals, considered tax implications and made recommendations of retention, sale, or donation. Fine Art Asset Management then assisted with the disposition of select artwork and provided the necessary IRS and USPAP-compliant appraisal reports.

Fine Art Asset Management collaborated with a client to fine tune the aesthetic of their newly designed virtual tech campus. After presenting a highly-curated selection of artworks, Fine Art Asset Management sourced a major sculpture by an internationally-renowned artist.
