Upon your request, after analyzing auctions, fairs, galleries and artist's studios, your personal art concierge will compile a detailed digital illustrated report with recommendations for available pieces to complete your collection. LOBBY’s mission is to collect outstanding collections for its customers. We do not charge a commission on sales. In addition to detailed descriptions of the pieces and direct contacts of the artists' agents and auction house representatives, we will provide you with the results of an analysis of public sales history for the artists of your choice in order to assess the profitability or investment attractiveness of the purchase.
LOBBY will take over the entire cycle of administrative work related to the acquisition and transfer of the piece, as well as document management. If you need help installing the piece, LOBBY's concierges will not only provide advice on the location, lighting, and framing, but also ensure that the work is carried out by professionals.
We will compile a comprehensive catalogue including detailed description of the piece, market analysis at the time of purchase, research text about the piece, photos and an archive of all original documents for subsequent confirmation of provenance (scans of invoices, payment confirmations, certificates of authenticity, expertise papers from the Ministry of Culture, etc.).
After the official launch of LOBBY, your personal art concierge will also duplicate this information in its entirety to the online version of the archive, which can be accessed via your personal page in the app and on the LOBBY website.
LOBBY concierges will prepare a list of individual recommendations for your leisure time in the coming trip. We will develop an art program based on your tastes and wishes, book the tickets in advance and make sure that you are paid special attention in galleries, register you as a VIP guest at Art Fairs and provide you with an expert guide or art surveyor upon request.
The cost is indicated for a three-day itinerary.
Guided tours and entrance tickets are not included.
We will collect, order and organise the delivery of an exclusive selection of 200 books that will become the basis of your art library. The bibliography is based on the client's task and takes their personal preferences into account.
The Collector’s Office developed by LOBBY concierges is a universal solution for systematizing and cataloguing your collection. It provides a quick access to the inventory and detailed information about the piece: photos, artist, year, technique, dimensions, weight, framing parameters, provenance, financial history of sales, bibliography, list of exhibitions, current location, curatorial text, document archive (invoices, payment orders, certificate of authenticity, conclusion of the ministry of culture, etc.)
Demo mode allows you to selectively hide information about the piece (including financial information) and automatically generate a PDF presentation to work with the collection.
Annual subscription plan includes the access to the private calendar of major international art events from the LOBBY concierges, as well as the case of the collector developed by the LOBBY team to systematize the paper archive of your collection.
The service will be available from February 2020.
Your personal collection manager will conduct regular work focused on cooperation with museums, galleries and foundations. Acting simultaneously as a manager, art director, art advisor and PR, he will develop a strategy for promoting the collection, prepare the exhibition and assemble a team of experts to publish the catalogue.
We will develop a unique corporate annual program or a one-time event within the framework of the company's marketing strategy with the aim of increasing loyalty and attracting additional attention from clients or team building within the company. The individual program is developed by the Lobby team in cooperation with employees of the cultural institution of your choice based on the campaign’s goals and objectives.
