In a fast moving international art market, often described as ‘the last great unregulated market’, we recognise the need to provide a comprehensive service based upon independent expert advice where clients know that their interests are paramount. For buyers and sellers alike, the market can seem a complex network in which conflicts of interest, opaque charges and missed opportunities are pervasive.

Watson Westmorland was formed in 2003 by Burghie Westmorland and Piers Watson to provide market knowledge and expertise, across all disciplines of art and antiques, based on forty years combined experience in the art world. We give clear and practical advice aimed at assuring buyers that they are acquiring the right piece at the right price and sellers that returns are being maximized.

Clients appreciate the objectivity we are able to bring because we are agents not dealers and therefore our interests are more directly aligned. We are able to source as well as sell objects anywhere in the world to best meet our client’s requirements. We respect long-term confidentiality and have a transparent and competitive fee structure.
