Art Advisory

After Nyne's Art Advisory service provides clients access to an international breadth of artists and galleries - extending well beyond those artists we represent - all at attractive pricings.

 

With Art Advisor Jennifer Conner's 20 years of experience in the art world - including roles at Sotheby's, Lisson Gallery, and The Affordable Art Fair - our clients are in expert hands. Well versed in all artistic mediums and styles, Jennifer's accessible, friendly advice will assist you in identifying what best suits your interior design needs. 

 

How it works:

 

Simply schedule an obligation-free home visit where we'll discuss your space, aims and budget.  So often people can appreciate beautiful art, but don’t know where to start when it comes to selecting works for their own home; Jennifer will ask the questions that will help to crystallize your vision. 

 

After that initial consultation, she will begin her research.  Jennifer will develop a detailed  presentation of suggested artists and works; from there, you decide which artworks make the cut!  The list will be continually refined until you are confident and happy about moving to the next step.

 

We will then negotiate with the galleries and/or artists and will secure the works for the best possible price, ensuring that they are safely delivered to your home.  If desired, we are always happy to work with clients to recommend the best framing and installation options to suit your space.

 

Fees:

 

Hiring an art advisor sounds incredibly luxurious, but clients are often surprised to learn that any fees are typically paid for by negotiated artwork prices — meaning that ultimately the cost is no more than clients would have spent if they had walked into each individual gallery. 

 

The initial home visit is complimentary, and at that point the structure of the fee will be agreed.  Typically, clients opt to pay for an initial presentation of proposed artists/works for a flat fee of £250, after which an hourly, project, or commission-based fee will be determined for the next step.  This is usually dependent upon the scale of the project to be undertaken and the services required, but the aim is to sustain no cost to you that would be more than if you had purchased the works directly yourself.

 

Any Added Benefits?
