Individuals

Few private collections are amassed in an organized way. Collections emerge and evolve, and in many cases details are lost or forgotten. Our primary service is designed to help museums and private collectors to inventory and document the details of their collections.  Starting with the maker to the medium, through measurement and condition, through provenance research and documentation: These are the basic details that define your collection. Our collections management tools are key to obtaining adequate insurance overage and understanding the appropriate legal documents needed by private collectors. (click on hyperlinks for examples)
