About the APAA

The Association of Professional Art Advisors was founded in 1980 by pioneering art advisors to establish the highest standards of professional practice. To date we have more than 100 members who are advisors and curators, building and maintaining art collections for both private collectors and major corporations. APAA members have significant art expertise and connoisseurship skills and must have at least five years of experience as advisors to join. Most importantly, they agree to adhere to our Code of Ethics. As the art world continues to grow, APAA’s presence as a trusted resource for qualified art advisors has never been more important.
