Art Advisory Services
More often than not, people's personal encounter with art comes from exposure during a gallery or museum visit, where they are confronted with new and sometimes confounding paintings, photography, sculpture, or newer media, such as video or installation art. Sometimes these works of art seem engaging or arresting, sometimes neutral or even off-putting. A viewer may wonder, for example:
- "Why is this art?"
- "What does it mean?"
- “How was it made?”
- "What motivated the artist?"
- “What is the value of the work in both cultural and economic terms?”
- “How do I react to it, emotionally and intellectually?”
These are fair and valid questions for both novice and experienced observers and collectors. LINN | PRESS is oriented to providing a rich client education, which ensures informed acquisition decisions.
We begin our advisory process with a discussion about our client's objectives, aspirations, aesthetic preferences, and financial considerations. We want to ensure that there is a balance between our clients’ interests and objectives and our abilities to meet them. As such, we evaluate our clients, just as they evaluate our capabilities and expertise. To be effective, there must be mutual trust, understanding, and chemistry in the client-advisor relationship.
