Testimonials

Sarah and her team did an amazing job cataloguing my collection. They are highly efficient, very knowledgeable and professional and the tools they have given me for managing it are second to none. I cannot recommend them more highly.

Sarah made a detailed inventory of an art collection for probate purposes in far from ideal circumstances: Covid lockdowns were still in place and some of the pieces were in the USA. This was all done quickly, professionally and with an understanding of the difficult personal circumstances.

Sarah is a most talented lady and a pleasure to work with. She is able to distinguish between really interesting paintings worth purchasing. Sarah has a great eye for detail and all-round skills in the art world. She is currently working for me on a photographic project, which is very large and detailed and she’s doing an excellent job. I look forward to continuing to work with her.

Sarah was a pleasure to work with. We worked together on a fairly complex acquisition for a UK institution and the outcome was entirely satisfactory for all parties involved! I hope to have the opportunity to work with her again soon.

Stèphane Renard, Founder, Stèphane Renard Fine Art, Paris

The team at Talbot Capes Fine Art worked efficiently and with passion. From our first meeting I was confident in them. They answered any questions or queries we had in great detail and approached our needs with high confidentiality. We still reach out to the team for occasional advice or assistance, and they help us with enthusiasm and kindness.

Sarah from Talbot Capes Fine Art Management is a fantastic exponent of the art world. She has worked tirelessly with me to source paintings by scouring collections and auction houses all over the world using a particularly unique and challenging brief. She has been available to talk and discuss options at all hours of the day and has been the most wonderful company on trips to visit art, as well as a professional and impressive colleague to advocate for our organisation. Her attention to detail both in the quality of the paintings themselves, and in her approach to research and client support has been exemplary, and it has been truly inspiring to work with her and to benefit from her knowledge and expertise. She works so well with her own team, with her partners from other organisations, and with the variety of different stakeholders from our own organisation. We are so thrilled to have had the privilege of working with Sarah.

Claire Davies, Deputy Director, Handel & Hendrix Museum

Sarah’s clients should be delighted that they have her doing this work for them.
