Formed in 2009, Collisart LLC is a private art advisory service and dealership, owned and operated by Frederick D. Hill and Daisy Hill Sanders who are father and daughter. Together they have over 60 years of expertise and experience in the art business, primarily involved with 19th and 2oth Century American Art.
Both Daisy and Fred are life-long New Yorkers, where each was initially educated; and each has also earned a B.A. degree in fine art from Amherst College. For some 45 years, Fred has been a leading specialist in classic American Art. In preparation for a career in the American art profession, he pursued a Ph.D. in art history at Columbia University, leaving the program after the M.A. in order to join a family-owned art business in 1972. After she was graduated from Amherst College in 1995, Daisy joined her father. Together Fred and Daisy have conducted hundreds of transactions with museums and private collectors across the country and abroad. In addition, they have been instrumental in organizing and presetting many museum-caliber researched exhibitions.
Collisart LLC is located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, near the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and is open by appointment to discuss buying and selling individual works or collections.
