Appraising and selling paintings and sculpture is at the heart of every successful auction house. Such a task, however, poses significant challenges, covering hundreds of years of artistic endeavour, in many styles and mediums.
Sworders' Paintings Department is led by Amy Scanlon who has 10 years experience with a leading London dealer and Sworders. Amy is fortunate to be able to call upon advice from Andrew Bowyer, who has more than 30 years’ experience. He is one of the most respected Fine Art Valuers in the country and is available to offer advice to our clients in areas as diverse as Old Masters, 19th Century European paintings and English watercolours. His academic knowledge and research skills mean he is seldom defeated by the many and various questions he is posed.
Sworders’ ability to identify and value works from a wide range of schools and periods, combined with careful presentation and marketing, have led to our achieving consistently strong results and some truly exceptional prices. To find out more about our forthcoming sales or talk further about potential consignments, please don’t hesitate to contact one of our specialist team.
