WHAT IS AN ART APPRAISAL?
We provide art appraisal
documentation that includes item/artist description, provenance and auction
records for the artist, general assessment of authenticity, quality, condition
and fair market price and replacement value.
We only propose a fee for art estimation-evaluation after review of your artwork
and only if it has value to make a report. We don’t give any art appraisal if we
are not convinced of the authenticity.
All art appraisals are prepared in accordance with the American Society of
Appraisers, guidelines and standards, as well the guidelines of the American
Appraisers Association, the American Society Of Certified Appraisers and all
major appraisers associations. The codes and ethics of these associations are
strictly applied to our services, even if we want to stay independent of them.
An art appraisal is bounded with an art authentication, we consider that an art
appraisal without art authentication has no sense.
With an art appraisal we provide, a short biography of the artist, comment on
the painting, an auction value of the painting, a gallery value or replacement
value of the artwork.

We also offer a more comprehensive
version of art appraisal service for collectors who require a written report.
The information provided could be as relatively simple as determining the maker
of a specific item or, where that is practically impossible to determine, the
school, workshop or manufacturer from which it emanates. Or it could be as
relatively complex as providing identity, coupled with original use, place of
origin, and social context and historical significance.
The fee for art appraisal is based upon time and materials and the cost and
‘lead time’ to completion of the report will vary according to the complexity of
the assignment. Invariably this service requires seeing the item (s) in person.
Having considered the information you submit we will be able to give you a total
cost estimate prior to beginning the assignment. You can then decide whether or
not you want to commit.
If you would like Van Weyenbergh Fine Arts to provide this service or would
simply like to know more about the process, please contact us with details of
your specific request.
