With 35 years' experience dealing in Modern British painting, we have a genuine understanding of the market and have the knowledge and experience required to assist you in all aspects of the sale and purchase. If you have an artwork you are considering selling, we will provide an honest and personal response, ensuring that you are in the best position to sell.
AUCTION HOUSE SELLER'S COMMISSION
Auction houses were once considered the best place to sell Modern British paintings, and while there are still advantages in doing this, the constant increase in sellers commission makes it less appealing than ever. The seller's commission at auction houses such as Bonhams or Christies has increased by over 4% in recent years, creating a hefty deduction from the sale price. This cost can be avoided by selling directly to us, resulting in a truer reflection of the painting's valuation.
At Thompson's Galleries, we can offer you a free valuation with no obligation to sell. This not only gives you security but also a greater understanding of what your painting is worth in the current market before making any decisions. We believe that sharing information based on our expertise and experience is key is providing you with the best possible service when it comes to selling your painting.
