“David has everything that you could wish for from an advisor. He is discreet, knowledgeable, has a keen eye and his integrity is unquestionable.”
David Wade works closely with the country’s leading interior designers, where he has an eye not just for investment but also for aesthetics.
David has been agent for significant purchases of 20th Century art, with a particular emphasis in Impressionism, Post‐Impressionism and Modern British, where he has established auction records.
Whether building an art portfolio, or sourcing pieces to display in their home, combining great works such as these, works from different periods and in different styles, creates a unique expression of a client’s taste.
Traditional art is marginalised by many advisors, but this huge and important area of the market can offer spectacular value and breathtaking quality. These earlier works, such as Old Master painting, British Portraiture or Victorian art, sit comfortably in contemporary homes alongside modern pictures and can add stylish diversity to a collection.
David Wade has advised upon exceptional works in these fields and has been involved with important reauthentications and discoveries.
“I’ve known David longer than anyone in the art business, and to my mind there is nobody with greater integrity. A great pleasure to deal with professionally and deeply knowledgeable, I look forward to many more years of association with David.”
In 2012, the company produced a large coffee table brochure to mark a decade of David Wade Fine Art, and to pay tribute to the memory of David’s father Raymond Wade.
The brochure records some of our clients’ most significant purchases, ranging from works painted in the early 17th Century to the late 20th Century, and we would be delighted to show it in person to prospective clients.
