What does an Art Consultant do?


An art consultant is an art expert whose knowledge, breadth of contacts and familiarity with the art world help collectors find art that is specific to their needs. The role can be varied and may include helping to build up a collection, working closely with a client as an interior designer and architect, or undertaking art research on behalf of their client.


It is also important to note that art consultants are not art dealers. The difference is that art consultants will advise on art whereas art dealers will buy and then sell art for a profit. An art consultant will therefore be less invested in a specific artwork or artist and can more easily change direction to adapt to the changing nature of a project.


In Conclusion


If you are looking for art consultants to help with art projects across the U.K., Asia, North America, or anywhere in between, these art experts can help you get your project off the ground and turn your ideas and vision into reality. The selection of experts in this list have experience in everything from public art installations to private collection management.
