Initial Review of Your Art Collection

  • Selection of pieces to be appraised [those expected to Appraise for more than $1500]
  • Acquisition [how, when and where the Art works were acquired]
  • Estimate of time and costs involved in researching Artists, works, and establishing authenticity.
  • Collecting Date [Measurements, Photographs, copies of Sale, etc.]



As a Collector, please note the reasons why you NEED an Appraisal:

  • Insurance Purposes: A current documented Appraisal, of your Fine Art, positions you for full value insurance reimbursement in the event of loss (CLAIM); otherwise, your homeowner’s policy or renter’s coverage limits loss to a flat rate. (INSURANCE NEED) An Art Appraisal is good for a limited number of years, generally 3 to 5 years; subsequently an updated appraisal  is important to reflect market fluctuation.
  • Legal Need: Professional Art Appraisal documentation also provides proof of value during any legal proceeding; without which, a work of Art’s value amounts to a matter of taste and emotional attachment—neither of which hold up well in court! Legal proceedings include, but not limited to, Divorce, Estate Planning, Probate, Asset Designation, and prevents Will disputes.
  • Non-Cash Charitable Contributions: See our webpage for Contribution/Gifting. It is a simple process but has specific details one needs to follow in order to receive the best Tax Deduction possible.
  • Sale: To get the best possible price on your Fine Art, an appraisal by an Accredited Appraiser, is a must. This is imperative, especially if you use a gallery, auction house, or another third party to help Sell your artwork. They will require a Legal and Current Appraisal.
