Art Consulting

We advise you on the purchase and sale of a work of art

Our advice and assessments are based on over 150 years of successful activity in the international art trade and many years of experience. Qualität und Echtheit sind unsere oberste Priorität beim Kauf.

If you would like to offer us a work of art, we will advise you on the selling price and charge a commission of 10 %, including all costs. In the event of an unsuccessful referral, no fees will be charged.

Bequeathing art, especially with regard to inheritance tax aspects, is particularly advantageous. We are happy to provide tax advice or recommend an expert.

We rely on our AAA art business model for the mediation of works of art

What is AAA art?

AAA art is a new business model of Galerie Paffrath that stands for transparency and trust. Hans Paffrath’s concept is based on a “three pillar programme” that strategically engages with the core functions of trading in art:

A – Trust in the seller

In the last 30 years, Galerie Paffrath has sold over 8000 paintings worldwide without a single complaint. This impeccable record underlines our reliability and is fundamental to our business.

A – Quality on behalf of Galerie Paffrath

The gallery is a trusted brand with five generations of experience in the art trade. Our strong market expertise and reputation are the basis for the high quality that our name guarantees.

A – Binding rules for transparency

With immediate effect, the gallery will apply a simple flat-rate fee of 10 % plus VAT for the seller on brokerage (commission). This self-commitment in the sales process is an innovation in the art trade.
