Private international buyer and paper work...
I'm a private international buyer, not used to all the paper work needed to ship a good from the USA to Europe, so I was really glad to be able to count on the professional help I experienced with my bidding and subsequent shipping of my lot!

1st Time was a charm!
My first experience with an online auction. A little worried about getting scammed, or poor quality, etc. The registration process was simple and quick. Bidding parameters were clear and notifications were quick once the bidding opened. Once we had won, Simpson Galleries made quick contact and assisted in locating shippers. We have received our print and the quality is exactly as communicated on their site. As we were looking for a very specific item, it took a while before the piece came up for auction. I highly recommend Simpson when you decide to make additions to your collection.
