Collections Management

CAB Fine Art provides cataloging, appraising, and digitization services for collectors of contemporary American fine art and art libraries.  Services include:  

Databases – We develop and customize FileMaker Pro 12 databases for the needs of artists, art collectors and artists’ estates.  VRA Core, a data standard for the description of works of visual culture as well as the images that document the work, is the foundational schema used for the structure of the database.   Library of Congress and Getty Research Institute Authorities are used to describe objects, exhibition histories, loans, valuations, images, libraries, etc.

Maintenance – design storage systems; organize art installation, crating, shipping, certificates of insurance, and condition reports.

Conservation – facilitate the conservation of aged or damaged art objects and rare books with highly qualified conservationists.

Photography – facilitate museum-quality photography by photographers who specialize in object photography.
