I am the owner of Vaughan Mason Fine Art, a client-focused art consulting company designed to manage the long-term needs of art collectors at all levels, offering primary and secondary market art sales, valuation, brokerage, appraisal services, assistance with art acquisition, and art collection management. I have personally evaluated thousands of works of art on behalf of corporate, institutional, and private clients.
My fine art appraisal reports provide support for estate and financial planning, asset management, insurance needs, damage and loss claims, charitable donations, equitable distribution, and potential sales. My reports are compliant with the 2018-2019 Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practices, an organization established by Congress to determine ethical guidelines for professional appraisal reporting. For charitable donations of works of art exceeding $5,000 in value, my appraisal reports comply with standards determined by the IRS for Form 8283. For less formal needs, I offer simpler valuation services for various uses.
I am an art historian and have worked in a professional capacity with major art museums in Houston, including the Museum of Fine Arts, the Blaffer Art Museum, and the Byzantine Fresco Chapel Museum, formerly part of the Menil Collection. In addition to art sales, brokering, research, writing, and valuation projects, I am involved in exhibition production and curation, and art book development.
I began my career in corporate public relations with Burson-Marsteller in Chicago, where I developed important skills in providing exceptional service and anticipating my clients' needs. Through ongoing engagement with the International Society of Appraisers and The Appraisal Foundation's Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practices programs, I follow the highest professional standards in appraisal writing.
Looking at art is my passion. I invite you to call on me for private and confidential assistance with one art object, or your whole collection.
