Consultancy

How can we help you today  

 

Our skilled team at McMillan Fine Art lends expertise to a range of fine art advising and consultancy services. With more than 25 years of experience, we are equipped to help our clients get the most value out of their artwork. Our services include: 

 

Fine Art Sales and Acquisitions

  • All paintings sold by McMillan Fine Art are high quality original artworks that are in ready-to-hang condition.

  • We specialize in 19th and 20th century oil paintings from a wide variety of subjects and styles. 

  • Purchasing and investment advisement is also available. Our extensive network supports connections with private collectors and galleries, local and international.

 

Fine Art Valuations  

  • Value fluctuates with time and market conditions. Knowing the value of artworks is relevant to sales, donations, and protection against damage. 

  • Valuation for insurance value is the market replacement value in a retail gallery, and is often the highest of all evaluations.

  • Valuation for resale value is the fair market value, or what might be expected from the sale. 

  • Valuation for charity is the fair market value for purposes of donation, and considers previous sales records more than retail prices. 

 

Insurance Valuations 

  • Our knowledgeable team will precisely appraise artwork to help choose the right coverage for our clients. 

  • All-risk property insurance covers all specified risks of damage or loss to property. It is usually the first policy to turn to for insurance coverage in the event of a fire, flood, theft, loss, or damage in transit.

  • Title Insurance protects from financial loss and related legal expenses in the event there is a defect in title to your property that is covered by the policy. This type of insurance focuses on risk prevention, rather than risk assumption.

 

Probate Valuations

  • Probate for artwork is common to determine equitable division of assets. This is the legal process for distributing a deceased person's property and settling debts.

  • The process is usually required when the deceased has assets that do not transfer automatically, such as bank accounts, real estate, vehicles, art, collectibles, and jewellery.

Fine Art Brokerage 

  • At McMillan Fine Art, we broker high-profile paintings and place them effectively relevant to the market. 

  • Brokered artwork may also be featured in our own gallery if necessary.

  • We are experts on authenticity, prepared to work efficiently on behalf of our clients to research, value, promote, and sell artwork.

PR & Marketing Consultancy

  • The experienced network at McMillan Fine Art offers its many years of business expertise to assist in gallery exposure, exhibition promotion, and artwork sales. 

  • We offer assistance in marketing strategy, market analysis, demographic planning, target Identification, and communication and customer support.

  • Our clients will be pointed in the direction to partner and network with other companies that can both be strengthened by working together.
