Client Testimonials » A Private Collector
Paul called Ray Waterhouse having seen a painting by Paul Chabas for $15,000 on the Waterhouse & Dodd website. Although disappointed with purchases made from auction catalogues, Paul agreed to buy the painting, comfortable with the guarantees given by Ray. He then sought advice from Ray for future acquisitions.
Paul writes, “I have asked Ray to provide his opinion on a number of important paintings I was interested in buying from a Renoir portrait of a girl to Italian paintings of the 1960s. He has put me off most of them due to their bad condition or inflated asking price, giving me well-researched reports which I like because they combine an independent viewpoint with his personal opinion.”
