The breadth and depth of our expertise allows Levin AG to formulate swift, sound judgments about potential acquisitions. Should you be interested, however, in deaccessioning artworks (either privately or publicly at auction) our firm has a proven performance history negotiating extremely favorable financial terms and world record prices for multiple artists.
Above all, a collector must feel that they are working with an advisor who is scrupulously honest and trustworthy. This is the bedrock foundation of any business relationship. All aspects of Levin AG business dealings, including the offering or sale of artwork, invoicing, and any monetary transactions our firm handles are thoroughly transparent to our collectors at all times. In addition, we guarantee that any personal client information is permanently held in absolute strictest confidence.
Methodical scholarship demands scrupulous research. A review of each artwork’s authenticity, condition, provenance, and clear legal title is completed prior to each purchase. After committing to the purchase of an artwork, there are many details to consider, such as tax liabilities, crating, shipping, framing, installation, storage, insurance, appraisal valuations, museum loans, and registrarial organization. Levin AG collaborates with elite international specialists in each of these specialized areas to provide a comprehensive bespoke management solution. We also partner with the most respected conservators in the art world, who offer detailed condition reports and conservation solutions, utilizing separate experts for sub-specialties such as painting, works on paper, sculpture, video/film, and complex installation-based work.
Over the past decade Levin AG has expanded our advisory practice to include public institutions and museums. Our firm regularly meets with and advises public institutional and museum directors and curators on both purchases and deaccessioning. We also discreetly connect our private clients and their home offices with public institutions and museums to achieve long term estate planning and philanthropic goals.
