There are certain questions that many galleries dread being asked; they know honest answers could cost them a sale. I think the answers to these most-dreaded questions actually work in our favor.
This is because Questroyal has already purchased most of the paintings that we are offering, and, as part of our prepurchase process, were satisfied with the answers to the most difficult questions posed.
Is the painting in good condition?Is the subject matter desirable for the artist? Was it painted during the best period of the artist’s career? Where does it rank in the artist’s oeuvre? Can the asking price be justified? If we lose a sale as a result of encouraging you to ask tough questions, we earn something far more valuable — your trust !
I find that I learn the most as I respond to my clients’ questions. I’m ready when you are.
