We ¬†assist with legacies concerning art collections or art works. We can make a professional inventarisation of the collection, a digital survey of the art works, a pre-valuation, make a selection or mediate for museums, auction houses, artists a.o., transport the art works or give it a temporary storage, check the art works for damage and advise on restoration.
For the inventarisation we compose a list of the art works subdivided in items as: name artist, title, matter, size, weight, year, edition, origin, signature, presentation (framed), damage.
We collaborate with notaries, taxation offices and art restorators.

The containers proofed resistant to vandalism.

Atlas en route (2003)

Maps designed to point at the values of archaeological sites in landscape and historical settlements in this landscape. Maps of value for governments of cities and villages in the Province. Maps for use of cultural heritage. In this art project three artists (Marcel van Eeden, Olphaert den Otter and Marcel Reijerman) made drawings of things in the Province they consider valuable.
