Fine Art Consignment 

Fine art is a diverse category that encompasses many eras. People love fine art for the culture, history, and beauty it evokes. Whether you have your own collection of fine art for sale or you want to learn how to sell inherited paintings, consignment for your fine art is an excellent option that will maximize your potential earnings.​

At Blue Box Auction Gallery, our goal is to make selling your Fine Art as simple and straightforward as possible. 

How Do I Consign My Fine Art? 

To consign your fine art with Blue Box Auction Gallery, start by completing our Considering Consignment questionnaire. Our team of experts will then assist you in evaluating the value of your fine art. Be prepared to provide photos of your artwork and any relevant documentation you may have.

The value of your fine art is influenced by various factors, including condition. Taking measures to enhance its appearance, such as removing dust or addressing significant repairs, can positively impact its value. If any restoration work has been done, ensure you provide records of the repairs.

Documentation regarding the acquisition history of your fine art, including when and where it was obtained, is crucial. Provenance details play a pivotal role in enhancing the value of fine art.

After submitting your information, we will review it and arrange a meeting with you. During this meeting, we will discuss your objectives for your fine art, inspect the pieces, and address any other inquiries you may have. Following the inspection, you will receive an estimate. If you are content with the estimate and agree to proceed, you will sign a formal, legal agreement, and we will take possession of your fine art for auction.
