The Clarion List the directory of art service providers has added London to its portfolio and expanded its offering to cover 24 US art markets upping its listings by 66% to a total of more than 4,000 entries.
Created by former Christie’s executives Jessica Paindiris and Gaia Banovich the platform comprises 35 distinct categories of art services and double the number of categories the partners included in beta version released a year ago.
The Clarion List has now added London, with more than 480 listings, its first market in Europe.
“We are pleased with the enthusiastic response to The Clarion List,” said Paindiris. “An estate trustee, recently saddled with an inherited art collection, wrote to thank us for building this community of art service providers to help her find the services she needs.”
New categories within the list include art tours, art exhibition consultants and art security. The largest categories to date are art galleries, art consultants and art appraisers. Users can refine their search results within these categories by location, specialty, years of experience and company size.
Basic listings are free, and the directory is available to art collectors at no cost. Registering for a free account enables any client or colleague of the listed companies to contribute ratings and reviews.
