What Clients Are Saying

I Would Use No Other Art Expert

“I had Kenny from Ackerman’s Fine Art at my home. I found him to be very gracious and very kind. I have a sick sister and he made sure he was not bothering her in any way. He was very informative. I would use no other art expert. He is the last true gentleman.”

Spectacular Collection, Integrity, and Professionalism

I grew up in the art and antiques business. My father specialized in Art Nouveau: works of art on paper (Mucha, Cheret, Lautrec) and Tiffany Lamps. I’ve become very interested in oil paintings from the 19th and 20th Centuries. Ken Ackerman has a spectacular collection presented and styled beautifully. His gallery actually reminded me of the Musee D’Orsay which I visited in Paris last October. I am impressed with the gallery’s integrity and scope. The Art Advisory and Investment program is brilliant. The gallery’s passion and professionalism is unique, and frankly unparalleled. I’ve had the privilege and pleasure of collecting for forty years.

Caring and Transparent

“I was expecting the process of selling my father-in-law’s painting to be like trying to sell a car, dealing with the usual stereotype car dealer/art dealer. I was wrong. Mr. Ackerman was very caring and completely transparent in the process and took the time to teach me about the process of selling art. Mr. Ackerman also knew everything about my artists work. I was blown away with his knowledge. The best part was, I received more for the painting than I had expected. I even recently gave him another painting to sell for me. I highly recommend and know you can trust Mr. Ackerman.”

All Expectations Met

“I was referred to Ackerman’s Fine Art by a trust officer in New York. I found the Ackerman’s Fine Art web site and made direct contact with Mr. Ackerman regarding the sale of a painting. Mr. Ackerman made sure I understood the services he provided and what he could and could not do. Within a short period of time, Mr. Ackerman performed exactly as he said he would. All of my expectations were met.”

A Painless Process At A Difficult Time

Valtat | Danseuses | Ackerman's Fine Art

“Selling a piece of art from my late sister’s estate was a painful prospect until I spoke with Kenny Ackerman. His honesty, compassion and knowledge of art made the entire process painless and prompt. He left no room for anxiety and communicated directly by phone and emails. He paid upon delivery. I cannot recommend him enough and I remain very grateful for his professional and personalized service.”

Yvett S.

Quick Response, Competitive Price

“I would like to express my gratitude to Kenny and his fine staff at Ackerman’s Fine Art. I contacted the gallery to inquire about the possibility of selling a painting I had inherited. After receiving a very quick response and speaking with Kenny, I entrusted him and the gallery with the sale of the painting. The gallery managed the arrangements for shipment from California to New York, and most importantly, obtained a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) for the painting in question. From past experience, I firmly believe that having a reputable, well-established art gallery present a painting or other artwork to the expert or authority for authentication will receive greater consideration. The painting was sold several months later at a very competitive price, and I was kept abreast of any and all updates during the sales process. Kenny and his staff made all the arrangements necessary for the safe, quick, and economical shipment of the artwork to its new owner. Thank you, Kenny, once again for your services and friendship.”

A Relationship of Mutual Trust

“It is thanks to the internet that I discovered Ackerman’s Fine Art. I have never met AFA’s team in person, but ever since our first exchanges a relationship of mutual trust has been established between us.

It was a real pleasure to deal with Ackerman’s Fine Art.”

I Endorse AFA Without Reservation

“My experience with AFA has been most favorable. I consigned an oil painting which, on inspection by the gallery, was deemed to be in unstable condition. The AFA team contacted a reputable auction house, and forwarded the piece for inclusion in their live sale. AFA’s conduct was most professional and they truly went the extra mile to have my piece marketed in the appropriate venue. The auction was successful, and I realized a price in excess of my reserve. I am completely satisfied and endorse AFA without reservation.”
Frank R.

Honesty, Trust, and Quality Artwork

I have worked with Ackerman’s Fine Art Owner, Kenny Ackerman, for seven years now and it has been such a positive experience. The dedication to quality of the artwork he deals in and the emphasis on personal relationships with his clients and his network of resources is impressive.

Honesty is a value Kenny holds in very high regard. He is honest with everyone he works with and demands it in return from them. I know I can trust him. It is easy for me to recommend Ackerman’s Fine Art to anyone looking to collect or sell fine art. Kenny and the gallery staff are excellent guides throughout the process.

Expertise, Experience, And Accuracy

Knight | Young Woman Picking Flowers | Ackerman's Fine Art

“After calling several dealers of fine art I made the decision to do business with Ackerman’s Fine Art. Their expertise, experience, and accurate estimate of the paintings’ value helped me to quickly make decisions with which I had no experience. Their prompt payment upon delivery of the paintings was also very much appreciated.”

Tim W.

Great Trust and Honesty

“In these times of mistrust, I was pleased to do business with Ackerman’s. They were professional, cordial and trustworthy. We conducted our business over 1700 miles away on the phone. I never felt neglected or ignored and my phone calls and emails were answered promptly. I was kept informed about my painting (while going through the authentication process) and we finally concluded our business with great trust and honesty.”

Nicoletta T.

Professional Service and Prompt Payment

“When I communicated to Mr Ackerman about my painting he was professional and to his word. Also, getting a prompt payment was very nice.”

Jose R.
Manhattan Beach, CA

Efficient and Professional

“I consigned a painting with Ackerman’s Fine Art around May of 2016. Dealing with them was easy and straight forward. We agreed on a target price for the painting and they went ahead and did what they do. Several months later they communicated an offer to me which was very close to the target and asked if I wanted to accept or keep going. Since I was wanting the funds from the sale for another investment I decided to accept the offer. The funds less their agreed upon commission, which I thought was fair, were wired into my account quickly with the entire experience was efficient and professional. I would definitely work with them again the next time I’m interested in buying or selling a work of art.”
