One of my favourite things about my line of work is when a client invites me into their home to see a painting or collection and I get to enter a whole new world.
I love to see how, where and why they decided to hang a painting, or place a sculpture, so that it fits perfectly into their living space.
This very personal level of interaction was not generally something that I was able to offer while working in the fast-paced world of auctions – but it is a service that I relish being able to offer my clients now that I work for myself.
Visiting these private spaces is also a great reminder that each time an artwork is sold from a gallery, dealer or auction house, it is merely the beginning or a continuation of its story – never the end.
If you are ever curious to see how art collectors live with the pieces they bring home, this post is for you.
