PRIVATE SALES

A discrete service dedicated to acquiring genuine investment works of art with full provenance and authenticity.

The art market is a wonderful opportunity for people to fulfil both their aesthetic and economic goals. Macey & Sons are proactive in acquiring artworks directly from artists and private collections. We have a discrete service dedicated to acquiring genuine investment works of art with full provenance and authenticity, offering not just ROI but passion and culture to your investment portfolio.

 

Art offers monetary rewards. If a buyer seeks diversification to spread risk and to maximise potential gain, art investment is a perfect solution. Purchases should be considered as a long term investment rather than a quick profit. A work of art holds and increases in value over time. During that time, the buyer can enjoy the artwork, combining both profit and pleasure. When you engage Macey & Sons for a private sale, we will present you with an agreement outlining our exclusive right to offer the work for a specified period of time.

 

We suggest a minimum holding period of five years after which we then guarantee to take the artwork to auction, or sell the item(s) through our Private Sales department. Macey & Sons has created stunning private spaces as focal point to introduce you to the world of art, as an opportunity not just for investment. Let us demonstrate to you that art investment will work for you.
