The management of sales for our clients, as well as curatorial and management services are areas that have grown exponentially at Read & Mullin over the last several years.
Our work as agents and managers of auction sales, private transactions, and placements with museums and other public institutions requires a broad range of expertise in national and international markets, close working relationships with experts and specialists, and constant, often daily monitoring of arts markets, in a variety of public and private venues.
This sampling of some of our recent sales success illustrates the breadth of our expertise and and reach of our experience in national and international marketplaces. The artists represented in these works come from four continents, date from the mid-18th century to the late 20th century, and were sold in auction rooms as far separated as Hong Kong and New York.
