Clients seek art consultants for two main reasons- the fear of overpaying and the fear of buying bad art.

However, there are many other concerns that could be addressed by the prospective collector under the counsel of the art consultant. These include how the collector might find the emerging artists with potential star quality, track down a particular coveted piece of art, or know he or she is buying a work that is authentic. Also, how does a collector gauge the future value of an artwork once he or she has bought it, position their investments to stay ahead of the artist's market curve and go about trading or exchanging artworks?

From a more far-sighted perspective an art consultant can assist the collector in developing their taste in art, passions for a specific genre or time period and visual sensibility. The consultant can then devise with the client a strategy for acquiring a collection, upgrading or growing their current collection or shifting their collection’s focus.
