The Clarion List expands to Czech Republic and 28 more European Cities

The groundbreaking website makes it easy for collectors, artists and advisors to search for free for art service providers across 36 unique categories

On Monday, August 8, 2016, The Clarion List – a website that helps collectors, artists and advisors find thousands of art service providers – will expand to 29 European cities, bringing the total number of markets served to 54

Via their directory of art companies with crowd-sourced ratings and reviews, The Clarion List offers an alternative to the notoriously opaque art market that relies heavily on word-of-mouth and insider referrals. Within the 54 cities, users can search among 36 service categories, including appraisers, conservators, art law firms, security providers, e-commerce platforms, private dealers, transport companies, storage providers and installers.

The new and expanded cities include: Amsterdam, Athens, Berlin, Brussels, Budapest, Cologne, Copenhagen, Dublin, Edinburgh, Geneva, Hamburg, Helsinki, Istanbul, Lisbon, Luxembourg, Madrid, Marseille, FR, Milan, Monaco, Munich, Oslo, Paris, Prague, Rome, Stockholm, Toulouse, FR, Venice, Vienna, and Zurich.

"We decided to focus our resources on a rapid expansion to major European art markets due to high demand by our site users. The lack of transparency and accessibility in the art market is a truly global phenomenon. We hope our expanded database alleviates that problem and creates a more connected global art market,” said Paindiris.

Currently, The Clarion List is available in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Miami, Palm Beach, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Charleston, S.C., Charlotte, N.C., Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio, Houston, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Denver, Seattle, Portland, Ore., Westchester County, N.Y. and northern New Jersey, and Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire as well as London, England.

About The Clarion List

The Clarion List is the leading online resource for discovering art service companies. The Clarion List is a searchable, sortable and free database with ratings and reviews of thousands of art companies across dozens of categories in major US and European markets. The Clarion List makes the sourcing of art service providers quick and efficient for collectors, artists and advisors, and empowers art companies to broaden their reach to a global audience in need of their services.


About Jessica Paindiris

Jessica Paindiris is a tech entrepreneur and founder of The Clarion List, a comprehensive online directory of art world service providers rated and reviewed by the site’s community. Frustrated with the opacity and inefficiency of the industry-wide world-of-mouth referral system she saw in place during her tenure at Christie’s, Paindiris left an executive role at the auction house to pursue her vision of creating a radically transparent service that would connect collectors, artists, advisors and art market professionals with art appraisers, shippers, consultants, conservators, and other service providers.

Not only does The Clarion List address a previously unmet need in the marketplace, by helping users find reputable services, it helps fulfill Paindiris’ desire to help preserve art for future generations—a passion she discovered at Yale University, where she enrolled as a prospective math major but from where she ultimately graduated from with distinction in Art History. During her breaks from school, she would teach herself to code, and after college was recruited to help develop a searchable website for commercial real estate titan Massey Knakal, a site that won an Interactive Media Award in 2008.

In 2016, Paindiris was among the first candidates chosen to participate in The Circular Board, an accelerator for female entrepreneurs who lead or aspire to build businesses with multi-million dollar revenues. The Clarion List, which launched in New York in 2016, will soon be available in fifty U.S. and European markets selected through a careful analysis of the galleries, auction show rooms, and art fairs. Despite her initial fears that the art world would react negatively to her disruptive breech of its archaic, secretive way of conducting business, she has instead been inundated with positive responses and requests for The Clarion List to expand into even more cities.
