Markin/Shafer Fine Arts
who we are
Markin/Shafer Fine Arts was established with the goal of providing a client-oriented
service that de-mystifies the art world and makes it more accessible to the collector. We
are committed to servicing and managing our clientele's collection needs so they are able
to focus on what is truly important: the artwork. We work with corporate and individual
clients at all levels and budgets to build and enhance their collections.
what we do
Markin/Shafer Fine Arts offers general advisory, procurement, and collection management
services. We work directly with each of our clients to identify and meet their specific goals.
Every client is different and our approach reflects the uniqueness of each collection. Our
acquisition strategies are tailor made specifically to your needs and budget. We believe in
an open and ongoing dialogue to achieve full customer satisfaction.
Markin/Shafer Fine Arts especially enjoys working with new collectors. The constantly
changing landscape of the art market can be difficult to navigate. As an advisor, we are
able to maneuver our clients away from common market pitfalls and ensure that they are
receiving the best value and the highest quality possible. We place no minimum on
acquisitions or fees.
Markin/Shafer Fine Arts prides itself on sourcing emerging artists. Many of our clients are
interested in diversifying their collections with new and exciting artwork. Located in
London, we have all of Europe at our doorstep to explore. Through frequent travels,
Markin/Shafer Fine Arts is able to expose our clients to a variety of works outside of the
mainstream art market.
