A global independent art advisory and appraisal group providing confidential, nonconflicted, strategic guidance and market intelligence. Founded in 1914 to bring together collectors and great works of art, we remain committed to developing and managing collections with a uniquely personalized and bespoke approach. Our autonomy allows us to advise private clients, institutions, and the legal and insurance communities with total impartiality.
Appraisals & Valuations
Gurr Johns offers authoritative appraisals of fine and decorative art, antiques, jewelry, watches, wine, collectibles and memorabilia, automobiles and all other tangible personal property. Our complete independence from auction houses, galleries, and insurance companies ensures that our appraisals are free from conflicting interests, allowing us to act objectively on behalf of our clients.
A progressive mindset on experienced shoulders, we specialise in exploring all art market opportunities to meet our clients’ needs and objectives. As trusted advisors, we use our professional experience of the market to provide strategic, commercial advice to art buyers and sellers on all aspects of art collecting, art curation, and collection management.
Capitalising on our established network of financial institutions and private sources, Gurr Johns supports clients in looking for financing solutions to raise short or medium-term funds secured against their collections.
