For over thirty years Michael Klein has never disappointed me when it comes to a work of art and the work of an artist I am not familiar with. He has a wonderful eye, intellect and passion when it comes to art.
My professional relationship with Michael Klein began while he was Curator of the Microsoft Art Collection when I telephoned him to inquire about an artist he represented when he had a gallery in New York City.
He is a diligent researcher and art historian, and is very well regarded by his constituency. I have consulted with Michael on a regular basis and have referred him to colleagues and appraisal clients with interest in selling art. He approaches each project vigorously with the goal of providing prospective clients and artists he represents with timely and relevant information.
In all my years in the art world I have never met a more trusted colleague than Michael Klein. He is a consummate professional; discreet, reliable, creative, ambitious and results oriented. He has the ability to see the whole, long-range picture while staying focused on the details and the immediate actions that need to take place. He excels in business and strategy and has a keen eye for art and new artists.
Michael has been a tremendous resource for our grantees.
With a keen eye and a great depth of knowledge Michael is one of those " go to " people you need when it comes to contemporary and modern art.
