Benefits of Selling your Australian Art with 69 John St

We handle all gambit of things that have to be done in order to sell your valuable investment. From collection and conservation all the way through to delivery, we take care of all of the paperwork necessary. Our professional team navigates through all of the bureaucracy and red tape in dealing with the relevant authorities both in Australia and abroad.

While we personally handle all important artworks ourselves, we also manage and supervise the processing and sale of all secondary works through channels / agents that we know and trust who are both reputable and the most appropriate for the artwork in question.


If appropriate and desirable we can offer financing of artworks, on terms, until the goods are sold.  This financing, depending on the circumstances, can provide short term cash flow or can be used as a method to instantly deliver a large portion of the sale proceeds while the sale process occurs


Our marketing is individualized to each artwork and not centred around a particular auction encompassing 100 or more items.  We tailor the marketing of each piece in order to obtain the best possible price for our sellers

Sellers Agent

Because we derive our commission solely from the seller we are and act only in the interests of the seller.  Unlike an auction house who is acting between parties and derives commission from both, we understand exactly where our allegiances lie and align ourselves accordingly.

While we handle entire art collections, we process artworks that are not suitable for our gallery through other channels, including, but not limited to, Australian art auction houses. This in turn allows us to focus on the principal artworks in the collection.  All introductory commissions are fully disclosed to the client. 

Gallery Exhibition Space

69 John St Fine Art Specialists provides an ideal exhibition space for your artworks. Spilt across two levels, our large space allows each work to be showcased to its full potential. 

Between four to five exhibitions will be held onsite each year with both online and printed catalogues. 69 John St also participates in fairs such as the Australian Antique and Art Dealers Association Fair, ensuring that we promote your Australian art via multiple avenues, reaching as many potential buyers as possible.
