Local Expertise. Global Connections.

Jane brings 25 years of professional experience in the international art world to the firm. A fine art consultant with clients in the U.S. and Europe, Jane is known for her research and networking abilities to source museum-quality paintings from the Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and Modern Periods for private purchase. Before establishing her art business, Jane spent 16 years with the J. Paul Getty Trust, known for its renowned Getty Museum. At Getty, she directed art and cultural heritage projects, beginning in Egypt -- at the Sphinx and the Tomb of Nefertari -- and subsequently expanding into 25 countries in Latin America, the Middle East, Europe, Russia, and Asia. Previously, she worked at the Smithsonian Institution's National Institute for Conservation, where she conducted landmark research on American collections for the U.S. Congress, the Mellon Foundation, and the Getty Trust. Jane is one of only a few art professionals to serve on the prestigious William J. Fulbright Scholarship Board, appointed twice by President Clinton. She served as art advisor and curator for Vice President and Mrs. Gore, worked with the President's Committee on the Arts and Humanities under Republican and Democratic Presidents, and was decorated by President Putin for her pioneering work to support art and preservation in St. Petersburg, Russia. Jane is active in the D.C. community with the National Gallery of Art, the Washington Performing Arts Society, the National Symphony Orchestra, the Georgetown Garden Club, Tudor House, and other cultural groups. She is a long-standing supporter of the Maryinski Theatre's Opera and Ballet in St. Petersburg.
