Museum Collections

We have been instrumental in selling Contemporary Objects to museum collections in the UK and abroad. These sales are often made with the generous assistance of The Art Fund; a process we understand and are happy to provide curatorial and financial information. Please contact us if you are a museum professional, or are responsible for a collection.

We are proud to have sold many Paintings and Contemporary objects to a formidable selection of museums and public collections.
