Ronald Varney Fine Art Advisors works one-on-one with families and private collectors to create a personalized strategy for initiating, building or dispersing art collections. We can assist those who have the means and desire to collect art but who may lack the time, expertise or market knowledge.

We work closely with clients to ensure that works of art under consideration represent the highest standard in quality, condition and provenance — whether their interests are in the collecting fields of paintings and drawings, furniture and decorations, jewelry, 20th Century design or sculpture. 

As the art market today offers so many exciting opportunities, as well as unanticipated pitfalls, our approach is to proceed with a client in a cautious, disciplined manner to ensure a long and successful experience in the art market.
