Appraisal

Valuing your art or artifacts  is not only an important aspect of tax and estate planning, it also ties into your ability to properly insure your collectibles and avoid fraud or questionable provenance that often lead to costly litigation, diminution in value, embarrassment, difficulty in disposition, and – at worst – a total loss of your capital. We select experts to make sure that our clients are protected and are aware of the true value of the art they own, sell, or intend to acquire. We manage the process, and work with the best appraisers suited specifically to a client’s situation.

 

Major appraisal organizations require their members to adhere to a code of ethics, as well as to updated standards contained in a set of professional standards: the “Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice.”

 

Art values change, and current appraisals protect your collectibles just as the proper and safe storage protects the physical integrity of your art.

 

Current art appraisals are also useful for potential insurance claims, sales of art, or for equitable distribution (of estate or trust assets, for instance). Depending on the purpose for which the appraisal is sought, art appraisals can evaluate artworks at current fair market value (FMV), retail replacement value (RRV), and Liquidation Value (LV).
