Consignments are often the best strategy for selling artwork.
Most artworks are taken on consignment for a period of 6 to 12 months. We conduct market research to propose a net price, which is the full amount owed to the owner once the sale is complete.
Whether in transit or onsite, consigned artwork is covered/protected by our insurance, with no additional charge. All consignments are professionally photographed before they're offered to our network of clients through direct outreach and digital marketing.
Unlike an auction house, which typically pockets over 30% of the selling price, we have no hidden fees for insurance, framing, photography, or storage.
We are actively looking for consignments of important artwork created during the second half of the 20th century.
There are a handful of artists whose work we are actively looking to purchase including, but not limited to:
Gershon Iskowitz, Annie Pootoogook, Louise Nevelson, Nan Goldin, Jules Olitski, Jack Bush, Edward Burtynsky, and Frank Stella - to mention a few.
