Fine Art Brokers was founded by highly experienced art market specialists Ray Waterhouse and Jonathan Dodd. They have assembled an excellent team with expertise covering European and American art from 1800 to the present day.
We work with clients in different ways according to their knowledge, taste and budget. For all clients we use our global network to source art, then we provide market reports, make recommendations based on our knowledge of the market and our client’s taste and help negotiate purchases.
This acquisition shows how we can access paintings which clients would not know about or have access to. A client was looking for a great Scott and when we found this in a private collection, we arranged a viewing in a neutral location to protect both the buyer’s and seller’s anonymity. After brokering the price, we hung the painting in his home. Since the purchase in 2009, it has more than doubled in value.
Whether you are looking to sell a single work of art or an entire collection, Fine Art Brokers provides expert guidance through all the various selling options. We advise on beneficial timing and potential proceeds and always guard our clients’ best interests.
A French client inherited this wonderful Gericault from his grandmother. He wanted a private sale rather than auction which we managed within two months. We helped establish that this painting was the original version and that the one in the Musee du Louvre in Paris was a replica. In collaboration with a private dealer in New York, we sold the painting to The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
We can access, explain and navigate the world of art auctions for you. Auctions can sometimes be daunting – the number of works on view, the conflicting estimates, the lack of guarantees, the terminology and of course the bidding. Fine Art Brokers can help you find, research and bid with confidence in auctions.

Million Dollars in Transactions
We provide strategic services for planning, curating and budgeting when building and owning a collection. We also offer guidance on insurance and logistics and are pro-active in suggesting favorable times to deaccession.
We work closely with trusts, estates and fiduciaries to arrange valuations, discuss and orchestrate private sales and negotiate with auction houses. It is important to have an in-depth understanding of the market and sales process when consigning estates to auction.
The principle three auction houses in London all held their major sales in Modern British Art last week. Although the auctions only represent one aspect of this thriving market it is still useful to analyse their results to take stock of general trends and collecting habits.
