How it Works
1. Start by taking our ‘Welcome to Collecting’ questionnaire. This will give us, at Art & People, an insight to your taste in art.
2. We will arrange a 1-hour session with your curator to cover the following:
A visit to your home to look at any existing artwork
A consultation – guided by your online responses
A conversation about number of artworks, budget and scheduling
In addition, we will take photographs and measurements to work with. If a home visit is not possible, this stage can be done remotely.
3. Based on our consultation, we will offer a tailor-made selection of up to 10 images. You will then have a few days to review our recommendations.
4. We hope you will connect with some of your choices. There’s nothing quite like seeing the art in person, or in situ, so we will arrange a viewing of your favourites. Once you find the works you can't live without, they will be yours to buy and keep!
There is a one-off charge of £150 for new clients. This covers:
