In the last 10 years there has been a radical change in corporate involvement with the visual arts. From blue-chip multinationals to private banks, there is an increasing perception of the value and good sense of acquiring a collection. Long & Ryle Consultancy provides a specialist consultancy service for companies and corporations wishing to invest in modern and contemporary art.
With informed advice collecting can present an opportunity for considerable capital appreciation. Alongside this art in the workplace is an unrivaled announcement of a company’s values and image, as well as an enhancement of the working environment that can be appreciated every day.
Long & Ryle Consultancy advise on what type of art to buy and why; taking into account budget, corporate image and the design or architecture of your premises. From a one-off piece to an entire collection, we are experienced in the purchase and placement of works of art in a variety of different media and, through our established relationships with respected art services, also provide complete after-sales care, from framing to installation.
Long & Ryle Consultancy’s previous clients include banks, solicitors, fund management companies and petroleum product manufacturers throughout the UK and Channel Islands. Work has been commissioned on a site-specific basis, as well as bought directly from galleries, dealers and auction houses.
