Art on Site Consultations
Our art consultation services range
from establishing new art collections to providing documentation
on artists, techniques or the historic background of your
current or future collection.
Building a Collection:
Contemporary, Western, or Non-Western
Barbara Rydlander can help you build and understand your
art's relationship to world art movements or current creative
processes. She has a Masters in the History of Art from the
University of California, Berkeley with an emphasis on modern
art and twenty plus years of experience and research. Barbara
also has extensive knowledge of non-western art collections
and the artistic diversity found in today's Bay Area art scene.
Love and Knowledge of Beauty
The most important criterion in the selection of a craftwork,
painting, sculpture, or print is the viewer’s emotional
response in addition to an appreciation for its unique, esthetic
qualities. That said, it is important to know the context
that an artwork has to its history or to contemporary art
trends. Barbara Rydlander will provide art historical research
for an artwork under consideration or currently in your collection.
For Private and Corporate Art Collectors
Art on Site offers art consultation services to collectors,
both private and corporate. We will work with designers, architects,
facility managers, healthcare clients, as well as others who
decide upon artwork and are establishing criteria for building
a quality art collection.
