Whether you have a picture that is consigned for sale at auction and wish to retain a copy, commission a copy of a treasured family picture; or ask us to find a painting from a particular artist - Family Copies provides a broad range of benefits to corporate and private clients.
SELLING WITHOUT SENTIMENT
Selling a family painting can be emotional; a Family Copy can fill the empty space.
PEACE OF MIND
You may wish to mitigate potential loss through theft, fire or damage by placing the original in storage.
REPLACING THE PAST
If there is a painting that your family once owned, we can research its history and negotiate the copyright & reproduction fee on your behalf.
COPIES FOR ALL THE FAMILY
A treasured family painting can be copied multiple times for your children; or an additional copy hung elsewhere, either in a second home or yacht.
You may wish to sell the original painting in order to release equity and commission a Family Copy to take its place. This not only allows you to enjoy the painting for many years to come, but could potentially reduce the value of your contents insurance.
TURNING DREAMS INTO REALITY
Have you ever wished you owned a Stubbs or Bacon? Working in partnership with Bridgeman Images we have access to over
4 million paintings, covering every conceivable subject, concept, style and medium, from the masterpieces of national museums to the hidden treasures of private collections. We can negotiate the necessary copyright fees and produce a Family Copy for you.
In place of sometimes costly & lengthy restoration, we can ‘digitally remaster’ the painting, perhaps even returning it close to its original appearance without having to remove it from where it is hung.
MAXIMUM IMPACT & CLARITY
Our copies are produced on the highest known resolution printer enabling us to produce stunning pictures up to 6.0m in width and 3.0m in height.
A SIZE THAT FITS
Once we have the high-resolution digital file we can produce copies to any dimension i.e. to fit a particular room.
Most original paintings will deteriorate over time if not kept in perfect conditions, through changes in humidity, light or temperature. A Family Copy will withstand these climatic effects to a greater extent.
"We approached Family Copies to curate a series of paintings for the dining room of our hotel and were delighted with the results; so much so, we're now considering two further paintings for the main reception."
