Art Consulting

Jack Rutberg Fine Arts is an advisor for established and beginning private collectors seeking guidance in their collecting interests. Sourcing works from its own holdings or through its wide international network, the gallery has been instrumental in building substantial collections. Museum-quality works are the criteria in our curatorial guidance and include paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture, regardless of budgetary considerations.

Collection Acquisitions

Requests for specific works are invited, as we frequently represent collectors, other dealers, consultants and museums in their searches with utmost discretion.

Designers and Architects

In addition to forming collections for private and corporate entities, Jack Rutberg Fine Arts has also served as a consultant from conception to installation of projects varying in scale; be they residential or commercial.

Collection Deaccessions

We confidentially facilitate the sale of single works or entire collections for individuals, estates and institutions. Direct purchases and consignments, as well as guiding donations to museums and other institutions are among numerous options available.

Valuations and Appraisals

An aspect of valuations is to understand the differences between insurance appraisals and fair market appraisals. Whether the need is for immediate sales, gifting, or protecting a collection with insurance coverage, Jack Rutberg Fine Arts offers service through our resources and through a network of professional colleagues.

Estate Planning

Jack Rutberg is frequently engaged regarding the disposition of collections from individuals, estate planners, and artists and their foundations.

Auction Purchases and Sales

We can serve as advisors and purchasers on behalf of collectors and institutions on a commission basis. On those occasions when selling at auction is desired, Jack Rutberg Fine Arts is available to interface with auction houses internationally, negotiating the best possible strategy and terms. This is especially desirable on those occasions when auction sales are mandatory for estate liquidation.
