    What Our Clients Have to Say

    Recently, we helped a client authenticate a Charles Blackman drawing bought at auction. In liaising with the Blackman estate, we were able to not only verify it, but provide art historical context. See what the client had to say below.  
    "Hi Angela,
    Thank you so much for all of this!... Glad I decided to buy it... I just loved it, now I know it's the real deal.
    Thanks again"
