Artist Estate Management
Fine Leaf is uniquely qualified to assist managing an Artist’s estate. Fine Leaf specializes in procuring prolonged exhibition opportunities to living artists, as well as developing posthumous interest in an artist’s work, ensuring a lasting legacy that nurtures with time.
For families of artists, navigating the unknown, exhaustive process of curating exhibition in the art market, safe keeping of the body of work and outreach to museum collections can be daunting. We collaborate with the estate to research each artist’s story, their exhibition history and develop a plan to disseminate and educate the public and art market about often under appreciated artists. As art collectors ourselves, combined with our interest in art history, we believe our passion shows as we represent an artist’s body of work.
Fine Leaf works with art galleries, interior designers, art collectors, auction houses and museums tirelessly exploring opportunities. By working with Fine Leaf, the artist’s body of work will be immediately exposed to a broad range of diversified opportunities within the art market. With decades of experience and connections, Fine Leaf brings a multitude of platforms, both online, but especially through robust traveling exhibition throughout the country. We help develop and extend the online presence of an artist, accelerating the awareness of their work, but we inscribe into our daily work the unending value of seeing artwork in person. We value the process of showcasing the work in person, not just online, so collectors can see the edge of the paper, so they can inspect and appreciate the color and craftsmanship unseen online. Online representation of the artist accentuates, but should never replace the tangible, cultural experience of experiencing art in it’s truest timeless form.
