ART ADVISORY

Individuals

FSCA understands that art goes beyond simple aesthetics. In serving the collector, the first and foremost job is to gain a full understanding of the client’s area of interest, aesthetic taste, and budget requirements. From building a relevant contemporary art collection to developing art that reflects the clients’ brand, FSCA advisors are highly skilled at identifying clients’ taste as well as other demands.

    • Research and Analysis
      Our firm brings the highest levels of expertise and connoisseurship when it comes to vetting works of art. The complex matrix of factors that determine the desirability and value of a work of art, such as provenance, condition, global supply and demand, critical importance and historic significance, are the focus of our analysis.

 

    • Acquisitions & Deacquistions
      Our private archive on market valuations enables us to provide collectors with thorough pricing analysis on each potential acquisition, thus minimizing the potential for risk and increasing the potential for gain including evaluation of existing artwork. FSCA identifies work to collect, brokers connections with artists and galleries, develops curatorial focus of collections; and also brings in a savvy market view to the collecting process.
      When selling works of art or an entire collection, FSCA safeguards the interests of the client to ensure they receive the maximum value for the sale. FSCA weights options between placing works at auction or private channels to maximize the value for the client.

 

    • Discretion
      While our firm’s position in the art world is public and prominent, many of our clients prefer to go about their collecting activities in private, with little visibility and utmost discretion and confidentiality.
