Appraisals/Consulting

Appraisals of client collections or individual pieces of artwork will be done with comparable information from current selling prices of artists’ works from galleries, private shows, and auctions will be used to determine the proper appraisal values when producing appraisal reports for market value, insurance and charitable donations.

On the art market, artworks and artists’ profiles, I can give recommendations based upon current publications, information from galleries, dealers and results of art shows and auctions for opinions on current market trends.
