Portraiture

Portraiture is one of the oldest forms of painting, and yet all too often the most underrated. It can be easy to dismiss a portrait, to suppose that familiar image of a distant relative cannot be of any real value, but take another look. In recent years good quality portraits, from the 17th century to the present day, have been selling well at auction. And with a depth of specialist knowledge, extensive research and the ability to match the sitter to the right buyer, we have achieved some impressive prices.

Success for our clients hinges on our ability to offer a level of focused marketing effort that our competitors don’t, notably touring highlights of our sales round the country to the nation’s art capitals of London and Edinburgh. Our renowned capability for generating marketing coverage, combined with our wide international reach, results in strong results for our clients time and again. Enhanced further by our strong private client base and long held relationships with the trade, our prices are demonstrative of the value that can be added to your artworks by the individual focus our services provide.  

If you would like to discuss consignment of an artwork, or would like information about a forthcoming auction, please do not hesitate to contact our specialists.
