The most important aspect here is, we need to know you what you are looking for. This is a very private process in the art world, so you won't hear about available artworks unless we know you're looking.
‘I have always wanted a McCahon Waterfall. Can you let me know if you find one?’
‘I have three children and I want a significant artwork for each of them.’
‘If an excellent historical painting by a particular artist comes up, let me know.'
I want to find the perfect work for 'that space' in my house - it needs to be the best by that artist. Though I don't necessarily know who that is.'
‘Would a particular senior artist do a commission for me?’
When the rarest artworks come up for sale, it is usually a very private, quiet affair – unless it is going through auction, when the trumpets come out. It is easy to say no to a painting when it comes up for sale, but if we don’t know you are interested, we can’t inform you it is available.
Most of our premier level clients have standing orders with us – ‘if an excellent Hodgkins / McCahon / Goldie / Fomison / Binney / Walters / etc comes up for sale, make sure I’m first to know.’
It takes a phone call or an email – but preferably a meeting – to let us know who you are missing from your collection. We then get to work for you.
