Art is all about aesthetic enjoyment, intellectual challenge, and a constant source of inspiration, but it is also becoming increasingly important as a passion investment. The professional management of a substantial art collection is correspondingly important if the financial resources tied up in it are to be invested in a secure and value-enhancing manner over the long term.
I offer private art collectors and institutions my advice and support in the purchase and sale of individual works of art, in their storage, conservation, restoration and presentation, in the establishment and expansion of art collections, in insurance and tax issues, and in the dissolution of art collections and estates.
Estimates and valuations of works of art based on 30 years’ expertise and experience are among my core competencies. In many ways, it makes sense to be aware of the current value of an individual work of art or an entire art collection. That is why I recommend that my clients have their treasures reappraised and checked at certain time intervals. In this way, they are always aware of their monetary value and condition, are always adequately insured and can promptly identify attractive market opportunities.
Loans to exhibition projects in renowned museums open up the possibility of positively influencing the recognition and, in the long term, the value of a work of art from one's own collection. At the same time, a broader public is given access to works of art that are otherwise not publicly visible, thus making a valuable contribution to the cultivation of our common culture. Thanks to my good contacts to public institutions both in Switzerland and abroad, I regularly arrange loans from private collections to particularly interesting exhibition projects and, on behalf of my clients, manage all phases of the loan process.
