Art Toronto – Collector’s Experience

Join me for your 2019 Art Toronto personalised Collector’s Experience. The Collector’s Experience is a 90 minute overview of the Canadian Fine Art Market with Art Toronto, Canada’s most important art fair, as the backdrop. My name is Courtney Clinton, and I am an Art Advisor specializing in historical art, landscape painting and art market analysis.

Together we will effectively navigate the fair seeking out important works and galleries.

What we will discuss:

  • Sourcing important art
  • Buying art at auction
  • Price research and analysis
  • Collection management 
  • Art Toronto and other art events

Bridging creative and business thinking:

My training as a classical painter gives me a unique perspective as an Art Advisor. I have a real passion for fine art and I understand how to read a painting. With a degree in economics, I understand markets and business. I can explain why the Jeff Koons “Rabbit” is worth $90M and why the “Salvatore Mundi” price is being contested. When I evaluate art for a client, I use both creative and business thinking to provide a clear analysis of the art’s cultural and market value.

With three years experience representing a prominent Canadian gallery at Art Toronto, I’m excited to share the best the fair has to offer.        

Art Market:

The art market can be intimidating and opaque. But those who can wade through the initial moat will find that art investment follows the same guiding principles that define other asset classes. Purchasing Canadian art means engaging with market data, Canadian history, and art theory. It is a rewarding and stimulating experience.

Let me be your guide at Art Toronto and help you access and understand the elements that define the Canadian art market.
