Collection Strategy
My expertise, the added value to your collection




Collecting is like travelling, every collector is unique, as well as every work of art.

Navigating an opaque and unregulated market as the world of art can be challenging. Passion is the most important driver for art collectors, but, beyond its emotional and intellectual value, art is a real and tangible asset with interesting business opportunities. 
Committed to the highest professional and ethical standards, I provide independent and unbiased advisory services, tailored to clients’ needs, interests and values, guiding them to build, expand, diversify and enhance the value of their collections. 
My extensive expertise in the art market and art historical connoisseurship make me an excellent partner for private collectors and corporate clients in building art collections that reflect their personal vision, enhancing their aesthetics and fulfilling their goals according to their budget.

Access & Acquisitions
Build, expand and diversify your collection


Purchasing art is an emotional and intellectual investment, as well as a financial one.

Starting from my clients’ collecting interests and aesthetics, I can identify and access the right artworks through my longstanding relationships with international galleries, dealers, auction house specialists, independent field experts and private collectors.
I assist my clients through the entire art acquisition process with discretion and complete confidentiality. I carry out in-depth research and market analysis on every work, conducting due diligence, prior to any client purchase, negotiating the best price possible, reducing transactional risks, and allowing my clients to buy with confidence.

Private sales & Auctions
Maximize the value of your collection




Selling can be a relevant part of an evolving collection, but it is a complex process, not immune to hidden risks and costs.

As an independent and objective agent, I discreetly advice and manage the strategic and market-savvy de-accession of artworks on behalf of private or corporate clients, trusts and estates so as to achieve the best/highest return possible. Upon identifying the right time and the most appropriate and advantageous marketplace, whether an auction house, gallery, or private sale, I will manage the entire sale process, acting as a liaison between my client and the sale venue.

Exhibitions & Museum loans
Present your collection to the public


As collections develop and increase in size, value, and complexity, showing it to the public can become a need for an art collector.

I offer expertise in the development of art exhibitions for private, corporate collections and institutions. I work to conceptualize content exhibitions specifically suited to my clients, to leverage new interpretations and reflections on their art collections. 
I will manage the entire process, researching and developing the exhibition concept, sourcing the right venue, overseeing marketing and sponsorship as well as the production of exhibition materials and catalogues, arranging logistics, planning and supervising installations and de-installations. 

For private collectors, lending artworks to museums or cultural institutions, other than being a common desire and a philanthropic opportunity, gives numerous advantages. 
Inclusion in a museum exhibition could bolster an artwork provenance, potentially increasing the work value and desirability through public exposure. 
Although art loans should be encouraged, collectors must carefully consider the cost-benefit ratio involved before parting with their assets. 
Thanks to my unique expertise and vast network I can facilitate and provide guidance when lending a work or a group of works to exhibitions nationally and internationally. I can recommend the best possible venue and negotiate and arrange loan contracts and conditions and ensure that my clients’ interests are secured.
