BLUE’S clients are at the center of everything we do. We specialise in advising public, private, and corporate collections and family estates, offering collectors the highest level of connoisseurship, access, independent market knowledge, bespoke art advisory and collection management services. Our tailored approach enables us to create dynamic art experiences for our clients to realise their collection ambitions. Through strategic buying and selling, we build value into our clients’ collections and curate world-class collections that reflect our clients’ vision and goals.

BLUE believes that the actions we take over the next decade could be the key to avoiding climate disaster, which is why we are donating 5% of all BLUE’s profits to World Land Trust, to which Sir David Attenborough became official Patron in 2003
