Advisory

Art Peritus provides expertise, guidance, and support for clients who wish to begin or build their collection. After meeting with the client and discussing the desired investment, timeline, tax context, and aesthetic goals, we research suitable objects that satisfy these criteria. We present our clients with unbiased opinions regarding quality, authenticity, and value of objects presented for purchase. Prior to any purchase, we provide a variety of options and an explanation of buying processes.

Our strong know-how and working relationships with dealers and auction houses provide our clients with access to the best art available in the current market. Throughout this process, we share our research and expertise to keep our clients abreast of any developments.
