Brokering

In solving mysteries of 19th century American portraits, Fine Art Investigations has become expert in answering the question: What is the best way to sell a portrait? Through established contacts with private individuals, museums, art dealers, and auction houses, Fine Art Investigations can help with the sale of previously authenticated artworks (authenticating and then selling is an unethical conflict of interest.) Commission is 20% for private sales; 10% for public sales.

Here are some examples of successfully brokered paintings:
