Integrity. Privacy. Due Diligence.
Founded by Joan Michelman in 1974, MFA is a family business with expertise in Impressionist, Modern, and Post-War paintings, works on paper and sculpture. Through four decades we have developed longstanding relationships with an international network of collectors, scholars, galleries, museums and private dealers. Many of these relationships begin with a consultation in our boutique viewing room overlooking Central Park. Here we discreetly discuss artworks with all our resources on hand, including our art library, our extensive database, framing examples and professional lighting to analyze potential condition issues. We are transparent and meticulous about the details of authenticity, provenance, condition, clear title and fair market value. In addition to advisory and brokering services, we make acquisitions as principals.
