You may open friendly communication with Elham here regarding any appraising-related questions and all other art services that you need help with, including the following services:

  • Representation in purchase and sales transactions with dealers, galleries and/or auctions helps our clients focus and make informed decisions. Whether looking to purchase art to enhance your existing collection or begin a personal or corporate collection, we can source quality artwork, coordinate gallery/dealer visits and provide the necessary negotiation followed by the preparation of framing, shipping and installation. If looking to sell artwork, we can provide advice on the best markets and pre-sale estimates. We help our clients learn more about specific markets and keep them up-to-date on trends.
  • Research on provenance, artists and authentication is important in fine art. Having the provenance of the artwork fully traced enhances salability and value. We help trace past ownership and work with recognized art historians and experts who can attest that the artwork is authentic.
