VELVENOIR X RECENART combining art advisory, historical research with state-of-the-art scientific techniques for authentication, dating and other forensic purposes.
The blue chip sector within the secondary art market has developed quite dramatically over the past few years, with the rise of a new class of HNW individuals, utilisation of art as collateral, Fine Art Funds, and Family Offices. At VELVENOIR we take pride in our collective expertise, our clearly defined management practices in addition to our personalised, dedicated and efficient services. In order to streamline our services for our in-house blue-chip art brokerage, and in keeping with common practice, it has been decided to add strategic alliances towards our portfolio – In order for us to offer a truly holistic approach within our blue chip department.
Therefore, we are excited to announce our new strategic partnership with RECENART®, the European art research centre based in Finland. This strategic collaboration enables both firms to provide additional services for international art collectors and clients who are interested in investing in art.
Recenart now has offices in London and New York where they perform onsite imaging and material analysis plus a global reach using the mobile laboratory for imaging and micro-sampling (testing of samples in either London or Jyväskylä). While Recenart has an imaging laboratory in Jyväskylä separate from the University of Jyväskylä, their strong partnership with the University allows them to perform a variety of specific testing techniques that many companies do not offer.
VELVENOIR’s globally-based experienced art consultants and advisors allow for personalized and timely management of our clientele’s artwork offers and requests, all managed in the strictest of confidence and discretion. For clients seeking an efficient, cost-effective and discrete avenue for either acquisition or de-accession, our Blue Chip Art Brokerage Department can provide such an option, with analytical support from RECENART.
