We can handle the entire transaction and help you to develop a collecting strategy tailored to your particular needs, taste, budget and investment risk. We will make recommendations as to what to buy, whether through auction, gallery or private sale.



We are happy to advise on purchasing art for specific location, whether private or public.  We have experience in both the private and public realms and are happy to travel in order to discuss your requirements in situ.



Whether you are looking to sell a single work or a collection we can advise on the best way to proceed.  We can consult on your behalf with external advisors and valuers if appropriate in order to get the best possible sale price.



We are able to act as a personal curator and provide a vetting service for works you may be interested in purchasing. We can also advise on the works already in your collection and are able to provide a cataloguing and inventory service. Other services include advising on the conservation, framing and installation of your art.



We take work on consignment and are also able to broker private sales on behalf of our clients.  We welcome enquiries regarding offering work on consignment through Zuleika Gallery or can advise on selling at auction.
