Our Corporate Art Collections team provide valuation, collection management and auction services for fine art and antiques for corporate clients, private institutions, and charitable organisations. Throughout Lyon & Turnbull’s history, the company has continuously demonstrated its ability to auction extraordinary pieces from corporate collections of art. Our dedicated international team provides tailored advice and services – from initial valuation to final sale - for a wide range of projects from single objects to larger, more diverse collections of art, antiquities or other luxury goods.
From selling works of modern and contemporary art like those featured in both the Deloitte and Lehman Brothers Corporate Art Collections, to assisting organisations with the process of deaccessioning part or all of a collection, our specialists have a wealth of national and international market experience. A level of experience greatly enhanced by our relationship with Freeman’s of Philadelphia, America’s oldest auctioneers.
Both Lyon & Turnbull and Freeman’s are passionate about collections, throwing ourselves into each project whole-heartedly; from the research and composition of scholarly essays to piece together each object’s unique story to the use of top marketing and presentation strategies to present items to the public in the best possible light. A proven bespoke approach is employed in the sale of every collection and it has placed the auction houses amongst our market’s leaders.
