“It requires that the consultant be part connoisseur, with the eye of a decorator, the analytical skills of a C.P.A., the logistical skill of a general, the grit of an entrepreneur and most likely, the diplomatic finesse of a Presbyterian minister.”
Steven Brezzo, Director of Sotheby’s Insitute of Art
