Client Testimonials » Ian Sellars
Ian had been interested in starting a collection of British paintings for some years but was restricted by a lack of both knowledge and time. “I have found the work of FineArtBrokers invaluable. In fact without them I’d either not collect at all or probably buy something in a rush and regret it. I don’t really trust my own taste or knowledge of prices to buy on my own,” says Ian.
He is often able to see a painting before making a bid but trusts FineArtBrokers to offer an expert opinion. He says “recently I was interested in a Duncan Grant picture which I decided against on the morning of the sale as I hadn’t seen it. Ray Waterhouse urged me to reconsider, telling me it was far better than the catalogue photo. We did buy it and I have to say it’s now my favourite painting. Ray knows the direction I want to go and makes suggestions, but I always feel in control.”
