How and where can I have a painting valued?


Have you ever purchased a work of art and wondered if the value has increased? Or have you inherited a beautiful work and do you want to know the (insurance) value? There are different ways to have it appraised, depending on the type of artwork.

Specialized appraisers: Look for certified and licensed appraisers who specialize in the type of artwork you have. These could be paintings, sculptures, antiques, or other works of art. They can provide an accurate valuation based on their expertise and experience.

Auction Houses: Auction houses such as Sotheby's, Christie's and local auction houses offer appraisal services. They have experts who can assess and appraise the value of works of art, often with a view to possible future auctions.

Art Galleries: Sometimes a gallery also offers an appraisal service. This can be especially useful if you are considering selling the artwork through that gallery, as they may be able to provide an estimate of the potential selling price.

Online platforms: There are also online platforms where you can have a work of art valued by experts. This can be useful if you don't have a physical appraiser nearby or if you prefer an online approach.

With all options, make sure you work with reliable and reputable professionals to get an accurate appraisal of your artwork.

For the value of jewelry, I can recommend AV Jewelry and Appraisals.
