The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Andrew Weiss during an onsite inspection held by a third-party verification company with no biases towards Andrew Weiss Gallery.
Andrew Weiss Gallery works with various galleries nationally and internationally. Andrew Weiss, a third generation art dealer, stated the following about his company, "I have had galleries across the United States that were open to the public. I’ve had a space in Palm Beach, FL and in Beverly Hills where we had a gallery that was open for 15 years. We have a warehouse and gallery space that houses the art that we sell to other galleries and use to curate exhibitions for other galleries around the world. Our gallery is open by appointment only."
Leads for Andrew Weiss Gallery are primarily obtained through referrals from 47 years of satisfied customers. They are currently working on building up their online presence. Mr. Weiss explained that when a potential client inquires on a piece of art they are provided with meticulous detail. This is pivotal as Andrew Weiss Gallery deals primarily with high profile pieces created by Chagall, Picasso, Miró, Matisse, and Dali. Mr. Weiss stated the following about their sales and service process, "our philosophy in doing business is to educate the client. We don’t sell, we give information. This is why I like working with art…You don’t sell art, you give information. We can give you information so you can understand why something was priced the way it is. We talk about techniques and how it was done. The client is able to make an informed decision as opposed to making a decision on someone trying to sell them and do whatever techniques to make a sale and not inform them. It’s less reactionary and more informative."
CUSTOMER CARE & COMPLAINT RESOLUTION – ANDREW WEISS GALLERY
During the on-site interview, Mr. Weiss was asked to describe a situation where a client was not satisfied with the level of service they received. Mr. Weiss expressed that complaints with their services are very rare. This is primarily due to their excellent customer service policies, "If someone is not happy we will refund the cost of the piece if it’s not as represented. We are very careful to represent the pieces properly. The only time we’ve ever had to return money is if the piece arrives damaged. Since we do present it as it is, there should be no reason for it to be returned."
When asked to comment on complaints posted on Ripoff Report's website Mr. Weiss expressed that the comment was made by an anonymous collector. The comment was in correlation to photographs that the alleged collector believes to be inauthentic, "The person who filed the report was not the actual client we believed bought the piece in question, after calling the client we believed filed it we learned that it was not this person who filed the report. Instead we believe that is is someone else with ulterior motives who is being vindictive and trying to damage our reputation by falsely filing this claim. The fact is we purchased the estate of Edward Weston and with the estate we have the court judgement that proves we have the right to sell the photographs of Marilyn Monroe taken by George Barris that we own." In order to assure future and current clients, Andrew Weiss Gallery is a member of the International Fine Art Appraisers Association. Mr. Weiss is actually a founding member of the group.
Andrew Weiss Gallery is proud to be a part of Ripoff Reports Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program, "It’s a way of dealing with a situation that I was unable to deal with on my own. This program is helping us deal with a situation that arose from someone falsely and anonymously filing a report about our gallery. If you are able to make a false statement about someone and not be held responsible or liable, this is a problem. I am trying to take away the mask from the person who filed the report. That is why I am involved in this program. If I could do this myself, I would have. I had a choice to leave the fictitious report as it is or be proactive and try to change the situation, which is what I chose to do. All we have in life is our reputation. I have been in business for almost 50 years and I’m not about to start a new career. It is my life and to me, this is a personal assault on it. This is my livelihood. If it’s being attacked I need to be proactive.I’m hoping and I believe after reading how this program works, it will unmask and reveal the party and show how untrue the statements have been. This is what I hope for this program to accomplish."

NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
The photos from 1962 of Marilyn Monroe that were taken by George Barris and supposedly signed by George Barris, were never signed by George Barris.
I'm a avid collector who bought 3 pictures of Marilyn Monroe from the Andrew Weiss Gallery that were supposed to be taken and signed by George Barris of her in Malibu. I took them in for appraisal and found out that George Barris never took pictures of Marilyn in Malibu. The appraiser told me they were copies of printed copies and were worthless. I called Andrew Weiss to get my money back. I spoke to a girl who said Andrew Weiss wasn't there but he would get back to me. He never did. I called again and was told he was out of town for a few weeks but would call me back. Around then I began to get the picture. ART FRAUD!
