Art Appraisals and Services

Home059Clients seek an art appraisal for proper insurance coverage for their art, for estate settlements, collection inventory, possible sale, or charitable donation, for which the IRS may require an appraisal. Since the work(s) of art should be visually inspected by the appraiser, it is best to find an appraiser near you.

A formal appraisal is a specific document that meets all the requirements of the most current Uniform Standards of Appraisal Practice (USPAP). Research on the artwork and each artist’s current market is undertaken and data on comparable recent sales is documented in your report, along with full descriptions of your artwork, photographs, and finally a definitive valuation summary.
