The first important thing to understand is how and why collectors value their art. What are clients looking for in the art that they collect? Most art sales are mediated by a gallery or dealer. Such professionals also mediate the operation of the art collections. There are always conflicts of interest between a client and a company who is mediating the deal because they each have different points of view and levels of technical knowledge. The art consultant attempts to offer the professional knowledge about art collection through the eyes of client. Usually the consultants have technical knowledge about the art and how the market determines its value. The client may have other interests in the art than just its objective value.
In addition, the dealer who is mediating the sale is often a professional not directly connected to the client nor the purchases of the art. When the dealer operates the assessment of actual value, a conflict of interest between the client and the dealer always exists because they both uncnsciously expect the benefits.
