Expert advice is always available

We are always enthusiastic about sharing our knowledge with the museum community.

Our Fine Art specialists are often consulted on technical matters, such as packing, special handling and supporting works, on preservation (storage conditions and appropriate buildings) collection management and conservation.

We are invited to advise on government committees, to give lectures and to teach. Some of our people can be hired to accompany projects, give their advice or manage your project. Their experience, built on working for many organisations and with varied collections, is always available to you.

Sharing intelligence: our technical expertise is freely offered 

"Most objects we handle are irreplaceable – I feel privileged that people trust their art works to me."

My Story

Tapani Huovinen, fine art specialist

I studied glass design and photography, following which I worked as a cabinet maker. 
 
I’ve been working for five years with Crown Fine Art, but before that I spent three years crate-making in Japan, packing antiques and art. 
 
I most like working with art and wood and the diversity of the work.
