For clients wanting to part with an item, an entire collection or an inventory, Art Viewing proposes a strategic approach to the sale of their artworks. Each item is estimated and subjected to an appraisal by Art Viewing or an independent expert. Then comes the phase involving market analysis and the choice of a distribution channel (auction houses, person-to-person, on-line site). This choice depends on the type of artwork, its price and the public targetted. Art Viewing benefits from preferential contacts with the largest auction houses such as Sotheby’s, Christie’s, Tajan, and intermediary auction houses.

More than a simple go-between, Art Viewing handles transport, storage solutions for artworks, and customs requirements. Art Viewing also provides clients with asistance for the asset engineering aspect: optimisation of capital gains, wealth tax…
Buyer-clients have access to our on-line catalogue which presents some of the works offered for sale, but also to the tailormade acquisition service. The “My AV” service is, in fact, a personalized purchasing service. Once you have indicated the artwork or piece of furniture you are looking for, and your budget, a member of the Art Viewing team will contact you to discuss your project. Art Viewing then sets about locating the item, verifying its authenticity and negotiating the price. If the proposal meets with your approval, Art Viewing validates the acquisition procedure and the provision of transport.

Thanks to their relationships with professionals in the art market, as well as private banks, Art Viewing enjoys access to artworks ranging from great classics to prestige pieces.

John Rankin Waddell

Born in Glasgow in 1966, Rankin is a British photographer of fashion and nudes. He graduated from the London College of Communication. His intimate portraits, sometimes very crude, and his joyously erotic approach to the female body have consecrated him as photographer of the stars and the new star of photography. “This photo would be completely different if there had not been this nipple sticking out. Emotion comes from a little nothing that in fact changes everything.”
