Art Search Limited has been advising private clients and major international corporations including Glaxo, Shell and Sinopec on all aspects of art for over thirty years - everything from commissioning major works of art to helping to carefully select a single print.
We work with both very well established artists and new up and coming young artists particularly recent graduates from art college. Over the years Art Search has collaborated with major organisations such as The CBI and The RIBA to create 'The Art Initiative' showcasing the best of art available in Britain today.
The art consultancy was founded by Philip Herriott former Secretary General of The Federation of British Artists and Director of The Alwyn Gallery of Contemporary Sculpture please see about us
We are able to provide a complete art consultancy service specifically tailored
to our client's needs including sourcing works of art, commissioning new work, searching for a named artist or a theme of art and curating a client's own art collection. For further details please see Consultancy
Art Search was featured in Home UK, an exclusive directory of the 'best of the best’ suppliers and consultants in Britain, rigorously researched by renowned journalist Helen Kirwan-Taylor who summed up our consultancy service better than we ever could:
"Art Search's director Philip Herriott ran the Federation of British Artists for several years which means he knows everyone in the world of art. If you have a home or office with empty walls, Herriott is the best person to help you find something to fill them, no matter whether it's for a boardroom or a drawing room.
Friendly, approachable and unpretentious he will guide beginners through the labyrinthine tunnels of the art trade while at the same time he can source precisely what the cognoscenti such as the Sultan of Brunei and BMW want to acquire. He has a particular gift for looking at a space and knowing exactly what will suit it best.
Art Search do not charge fees to their clients but obtain a commission from the artist. They advise private and corporate clients throughout the UK."
We aim to make the whole process of selecting art easy and enjoyable for our clients, work can be selected in situ at their home or office, or during a specially arranged visit to an artist's studio. We can provide any form of art including paintings, prints, hangings, sculpture and photography in both a contemporary or
traditional style. To help our clients to make their choices we have developed our Art Search Art Review. For further details please see Selecting Art
As well as sourcing existing artwork for our clients, many of the works we have provided have been specially commissioned for their projects. These have ranged from large scale installations to single watercolours.
" I was delighted with the help and advice Philip gave me about the art for my apartment. The whole selection process was enjoyable. It was particularly helpful that he could bring work to me so that we could view it in situ in the apartment to see if it was suitable and that he could work around my busy schedule.
I use the apartment frequently for entertaining and the quality of the artwork is regularly complimented. I would recommend Philip extremely highly."
