Fine Art/Private collections


Dear Mr Twyman

I would like to know if you are familiar with any site where it is possible to explore private art collections. I mean to know which art works are in which collections.

If you dont know any general site could you then tell me if there are any Leonardo da Vinci drawings or Sandro Botticelli paintings in private collections today? If yes, in which collections?

I hope you are able to help me...

Thank you in advance.

Best Regards, Soren

The owners of such collections like to stay anonymous unless they loan the works to a museum exhibit. You can search under terms like "private collection on loan to the museum of modern art" or Tate museum or any major metropolitan museum. You will notice during auctions, some of the large sums of money spent on Picasso etc., come in over the phone and the buyers do not always want the public to know their names.

I can answer questions about Salvador Dali. While I cannot do FREE APPRAISALS, I might be able to help you sell your works. I can also help with Chagall, Miro, Picasso and other 20th Century Masters.

Questions about a type of art or medium can be answered with one response in most cases. Technical issues are easier to deal with than specifics about an artist. If you need help finding values or history on an artist, it will probably involve research that can sometimes take hours to complete. If you have more than one image to send, I will give you an alternate email address as this system cannot handle multiple images.
