Over the years we have been asked many times about resale of paintings bought in the past, either from Zimmer Stewart Gallery or from elsewhere.
There might be many reasons why you would want to resell a piece of art:
Your tastes have changed
You have moved house & it no longer 'fits'.
You want to buy something else
Any other reason
Some pieces by well established artists, who may already have an auction record (at one of the major auction houses) will already be saleable via other avenues.
However, this route to sale is not feasible for many contemporary artists and consequently auction houses either will not take them or will value them with low estimates.
So, we have launched the Contemporary Art Market to fill the gap and provide an intelligent, easy to use place where clients can offer their works for sale and those looking for such pieces can easily find them.
Fees for this service would be a six month listing fee, which could be renewed and then a percentage of the selling price. After six months we would review the listing and discuss with the seller options for listing for a further six months (price changes or online auction for example).
Remember that Artist Resale Rights may apply for some works. This applies to sales over the sterling equivalent of 1000 euros. We can advise whether this would apply and what the percentage is. This would normally be added to the sales price and as such paid by the buyer.
The website if currently under construction, but if you are interested in finding out more about this service please do contact us.
We would like to hear from you and start listing your work for resale as soon as possible in 2020!
