Robert Snell

Robert’s passion for fine art began as a young child visiting his grandparents home and being surrounded by paintings and antiques. This evolved into a full time job when he was given the opportunity to sell several of the paintings and antiques. Robert enjoyed this field so much that he changed his major at the University of Minnesota to Art History and took classes at New York University for art appraisals.

Robert spent five years in Chicago working for the largest appraisal firm in the Midwest and was involved in appraising some incredible collections such as Notre Dame University and the American College of Surgeons.

Robert moved back to Minneapolis with his wife and they are expecting their first child in the fall.
