Art Search is able to provide a complete art consultancy service for our private and corporate clients.
Our consultancy service is specifically tailored to our client's needs and includes:
We aim to make the whole process of selecting art easy and enjoyable, for example to help our clients to create a shortlist of favoured artists we devised the Art Search Art Review where our clients can quickly review a huge range of artists' work from photographs. Then available art by these shorlisted artists can be sourced and viewed in situ at the client's home or office or if preferred, during a specially arranged visit to an artist's studio.
Please see Selecting art
We work with both established artists and new up and coming young artists.
We visit hundreds of artists each year in their studios and at the Art College's final year graduate shows. We can source any form of art including paintings, sculpture, hangings, prints and photography and we can source work in both a contemporary or traditional style.
For further details please see Range of art
We can also arrange for new works of art to be specially commissioned to suit a particular location or to commemorate a special event and over half of the work
we have provided to our clients over the years has been specially created for them.
Please see commissions for more information.
We have often been asked by our clients to research the work of a particular artist whose work they have seen and admired over the years. For living artists this would include us locating and approaching the artist and determining what work they have available and their current prices. We can also research availability of works and prices on the secondary market.
Equally we have been asked to carry out research along a particular theme which can be as varied as Contemporary Chinese Art or even find "A left handed calligrapher who can do mirror writing like Leonardo DaVinci" for BBC Horizon - we like a challenge!
We can provide a complete survey of
our client's existing art collection,
including arranging for any renovation
and reframing of work where required.
We can also arrange for the careful
relocationand reinstallation of work by
our team of experts.
If required we can also advise on the sale
of any unwanted works from the collection.
Art Search provided all the artwork for the Headquarters of Alianz Dresdner in Bishopsgate, London and they were delighted with the results and Simon Oster their Facility Manager summed up the experience very concisely:
"Art Search came, they listened and they made reccomendations, that's exactly what we wanted. I've recommended them to several of the other companies in the building."
