Art consultancy

Art consultancy offers guidance to art collectors who wish to navigate the famously untransparent arts market.

The arts market has seen several years of strong growth, with international revenues approaching 45 billion dollars. Thanks to internet and social media, the arts market is more approachable than ever. At the same time it’s still largely unregulated and wholly untransparent. How to find your way? How to avoid buying counterfeit or even stolen art? How to make sure you’re paying the right price? Which markets segments should you concentrate on? An Art Consultant can help you find an answer.

Purchasing advice

Throughout the purchasing process, I can offer advice – whether it’s on selecting the art piece that best fits your collection or on deciding the price you should pay. If you prefer, I can also take care of the negotiation process itself.

"Based on my experience, I can help you make the right choice and provide insight into the way the market works. Are you interested in selling? Then I will tell you all about the options you have: auction, consignation, direct sales to collectors or online sales. All these options have their own advantages and disadvantages with regards to reach, revenue and speed of sale. Together, taking full account of your wishes, we will decide what’s the best option for you. If you have questions about valuation, restoration or fiscal matters, I will gladly share my network with you and introduce you to the best people in the field. Finally, art consultancy offers a great way for aspiring collectors to get to grips with the arts market."

About Gijs van Kerkhoff

My mission is to build a relationship with my clients with a passion for art, personal attention and expertise. As a graduated historian with work experience at auction houses, I had the privilege of advising and guiding numerous private clients during 16 years as advisor at Van Lanschot Ars Mundi. In the process, I built up an extensive network in the art world.

With my company Van Kerkhoff Art, I return to my first love: art. My core values: customisation, discretion and personal service. My base of operations is the beautiful village of Oosterbeek, where I am happy to welcome you for a personal introductory meeting.
