OUR SALES CODE OF CONDUCT
Martin Lawrence Galleries is dedicated to providing quality art and professional service. Before you purchase art, please consider the following:
- Buy what you love and what you will enjoy having in your home or office. Do not buy for financial investment or speculation. Given the semantically broad appeal of the word “investment” and the increasein price of many of our past publications, it is understandable that a collector might look for some assessment of the potential for future appreciation in value. However, all Martin Lawrence consultants are instructed to stay completely away from the subject of art as a medium for investment.
- To gain insight, visit galleries, see different styles, meet artists when possible, and acquaint yourself with gallery personnel.
- Familiarize yourself with an artist before you purchase; don’t be intimidated by the gallery setting.
- Do not purchase art “unavailable for viewing” unless you have an established relationship with the consultant and gallery.
- Request documentation of authenticity and buy only from established, reputable dealers who will stand behind the work sold.
- Fine art is available at all price levels and need not be expensive to be enjoyed. Examine art for the quality and condition.
