Advisory Services

INITIAL CONSULTATION & ENGAGEMENT
Katherine Holland will meet with clients to discuss their needs. Holland and Company will locate a specific painting, assemble a collection, or update an existing one through additions or deaccession work no longer relevant to the collection. The initial consultation is complimentary. A retainer commensurate with the project will be agreed upon.

SELECTION PROCESS
Holland and Company will arrange introductions to gallery owners and private dealers and provide images and information on all available artwork in the client’s field of interest. Paintings may be tried “on approval” in a client’s home or office for one week and will be delivered and installed with proper lighting. An hourly fee will be applied to research time and condition reports and a delivery and installation fee will be charged.

MAINTAINING A COLLECTION
Introductions to experts and craftsmen in the fine art field will be arranged and clients will be advised as to what services they need in order to ensure that their fine art is displayed and maintained in the best possible conditions. These services include framing, conservation, proper installation and lighting. Holland and Company can arrange insurance and appraisals for either replacement or estate purposes.

SELLING A PAINTING OR A COLLECTION
Holland and Company will advise and assist clients who wish to sell artwork by ascertaining whether a painting will fetch a better price at auction or through a private sale and in what location (i.e. the United States, England, Asia, etc) the work would receive the best audience. We will also advise on the donation of artwork and will see the sale or donation through to the client’s satisfaction.
