To our valued audience and prospective event invitees: The health and comfort of our event guests is of utmost importance, therefore in consideration of the growing health concerns over the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Fine Art Brokers, Trusts & Estates and Christie’s have decided to postpone our upcoming event, Planning Strategies for Fine Art & Collectibles, until the Autumn of 2020.
This panel talk will cover essential and invaluable information for our audience, so it is equally important for us that we can present this event at a time when it may be most beneficial to all our invitees.
Further details of the event will be sent out in due course, however, please do not hesitate to contact Fine Art Brokers with any questions in the interim, we would be delighted to assist.
Please find the details for the forthcoming event below. If you would like additional information or would like to request an invitation please let us know, space will be limited.
You may reach us by phone (212) 717-9100 or by email at email@example.com
Fine Art Brokers is pleased to announce our partnership with Christie's and Trusts & Estates to present Planning Strategies for Fine Art & Collectibles: Managing the Disposition of Art Collections. This exclusive event will feature a panel with industry experts examining how financial and estate planners can best serve their clients who have significant art collections. The discussion will focus on prudent financial management of owning art during a client’s lifetime and planning how best to maximize value and sell artwork, including the tax implications, when the client dies. The panel will also concentrate on the legal and tax issues and how to work most effectively with both an auction house and an independent art advisor and broker.

Jean-Paul Riopelle developed his mature style in the early 1950s: tessellated canvases that unfold like constellations, their heavy impasto applied with a palette knife directly from the tube of paint. Living in Paris and exhibiting worldwide, including at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and with Pierre Matisse Gallery from 1953–89 – which was owned by the son of Henri Matisse and promoted the European avant-garde in the US – Riopelle became the most internationally acclaimed Canadian artist of his generation. This holds still more true today, with prices for the artist’s work reaching unprecedented heights.
Fine Art Brokers hope that all our friends, clients, colleagues and peers in the trade stay well and healthy. As art market professionals, we have been approached by numerous collectors over the last month for advice and opinion on the effect of the global Covid-19 crisis on the art market. Here we outline our initial thoughts, although all of our experts in New York and London are happy to speak in more depth to collectors and consignors on a one-to-one basis.
