Art Advisory

Would you go on a safari without an experienced guide?

Our dynamic advisory practice supports clients through all phases of the art market cycle, through expert capabilities in acquisitions, negotiating sales, buying and selling at auction, valuations, collection management, philanthropy, insurance, and tax and estate planning.

We are trusted consultants to private individuals, experienced collectors, family offices, lawyers, and art institutions.  When partnering with Gurr Johns, you can expect significant engagement with veteran dealmakers, first-class due-diligence and the highest standards of confidentiality and discretion.

We offer balanced market insight, coupled with curatorial guidance that make a meaningful difference to our clients’ art portfolio across all price points and art categories, from old masters to contemporary art, and from antiquities to design.

We neither hold stock nor represent artists.  Being privately owned gives us the freedom of a longer-term approach, in both art collecting and relationships – this is how we measure our success.

In the last 5 years, Gurr Johns has advised private clients on more than US$1billion of art transactions.
