About appraisals Appraisals

  • Art valuation is the process of estimating the potential market value of works of art as a financial valuation, apart from an aesthetic opinion, subjective views of cultural value play a part as well.

  • The basic level of price determination, an art valuation provides an estimate of the current market value of a work of art: painting, sculpture or a limited edition print.

  • The research and investigation has a particular importance firstly, to authenticate an artwork and secondary, to value objects.

  • Comparative techniques, seeing the objects first hand, expert opinions, investigation, study and the results of scientific tests may also be used, but establishing provenance is essentially a matter of documentation.

  • The purpose of tracing the provenance of an object or entity is to provide contextual and circumstantial evidence for its authenticity, the original production or discovery, by establishing, its history, especially the sequences of its formal ownership, custody, and/or places of storage.

Art Valuation Guidelines:

Works of art are not fungible like stocks thus art appraisals require continual research.

  • The World art market operates in an economic model that considers more than supply and demand. It is a hybrid type of prediction market where art is bought and sold for values based not only on a work's perceived cultural value, but on both its past monetary value as well as its predicted future value.

  • Unlike the volumes in the securities market where millions of people and firms participate in buying and selling financial interests, or the commodities market where measures of raw or primary products are exchanged using standardized contracts, art market activity largely follows the demands of a more limited array of private art collectors, museums, and large corporate interests as the principal market participants.

  • Art appraisals rely to a great extent on the advice and enthusiasm of a variety of specialized market analysts, curators and commercial galleries.

  • Artwork value is enhanced by competition for the work, rarity as well as the current trend, taste, belief and style.

  • The art market's participants and other limitations dictate the size of the market and increase the risk that some items may be over or undervalued.

To arrive at a specific monetary value, an art valuation involves research and collecting data from multiple sources:

The following elements may affect the value of an artwork:

  • Is the item you own, a museum-quality work of art?

  • Is the artwork scarce or otherwise?

  • Is the artwork historically important, it is illustrated / publicized?

  • Has it an influence or has it been influenced?

  • It is the artwork representative of the artist?

  • Is the artwork from the period of the artist high-acclaim?

 Artwork value is affected by:

  • the nature of attribution (a scholar's opinion, and which scholar attributions)

  • the artistic merit

  • the quality and the rarity

  • provenance

  • the style, title, subject and the condition

  • An artwork size may not necessary qualify to increase its price nor affects its value.

Value is created by reputation of the seller.

History play the essential role of supplying attribution, establishing opinion and authenticating works of art offered on the World Art market.
