ArteLia is independent and discreet art consultancy for private individuals and corporate clients. We are based in London and Monaco but working internationally.
The initial consultation will involve finding out about client’s requirements and expectations. We will talk about the specifications, subject matter and value of the required piece and discuss the surroundings in which the artwork will be displayed. Our team will often visit the space in situ to have a better understanding of the project and plan the next steps of collaboration.
Buying a work of art can often be a daunting process: which style to choose, where to buy from, how to install – the list of the questions is endless. We are eager to offer you a professional and confidential guidance throughout all the stages from acquisition to installation.
If you are buying a piece for your home, ArteLia will act as a mediator between yourself, artist or gallery and the design team to make sure that the acquired art work fits perfectly within your interior. We will source the work directly either from artist’s studio, auction house or a gallery and take responsibility of negotiating on client’s behalf. We will compile a formal presentation on chosen art piece, advising on its provenance, market value, authenticity and condition.
When working with collectors and corporate bodies, we embrace a more strategic approach. Our team will assess and evaluate your current collection and talk about ways in which we can enhance it while working together. ArteLia regularly observes auction results, art fair activity, and private sales to inform its clients of current market trends and maximize value of each acquisition. We are keen to educate our clients and introduce them to new movements and artists that they might have not considered before.
We encourage our clients to view the work in a designated space and will often arrange viewings of paintings at clients’ homes and offices.
A key part of our service is taking care of all logistics of buying. We let our client enjoy the process of collecting, leaving us to deal with shipping, insurance, framing and installation.
If you are interested in any aspect of collecting, we welcome the opportunity to meet and discuss this with you in more detail.
