As art historians, our thorough research is aimed to bring to public attention new data about art and artists. We continuously attempt to uncover relevant, interesting facts and documentation that can be included in articles, books, exhibition catalogues, data sheets and catalogue raisonné compilations. We have been members of The Appraisers Association of America since 1974 and are qualified to appraise American art dating from 1840 to the present for individual, museum, institution, corporation, estate and I.R.S. needs. Our focus as appraisers, art dealers and historians is not restricted to a concentration on merely the most famous artists, but to have complete knowledge about those who may not be as well known who were (and are) uniquely talented and may deserve recognition. Providing a complete art service for a worldwide clientele of discerning collectors, museums and corporations, our overhead is kept low so prices can remain reasonable. Over the past four decades, we have helped build diverse, relevant private, corporate and museum collections of great stature and value.
