Fine Art Appraisal Services

“Is my art worth getting an art appraisal?”

When we buy a piece of art that has caught our eye or our imagination, we always hope that it will endure the test of time and increase in value. Sometimes, the seller gives us some assurance that we made a wise purchase by giving us an “Art Appraisal” on their letterhead or a “Certificate of Authenticity.” These documents may have a great deal of validity at the time. Or they may not.

As the years go by, we may begin wonder if we should get an updated art appraisal to see if the value of our artwork has kept pace with our expectations. Perhaps we need to purchase or update our insurance coverage for it. Maybe we want to put it in a trust or donate or sell it. Or maybe we just want to see if our crystal ball was working well when we bought it.

When you decide it’s time to get a new or updated art appraisal, WorthWise can handle your needs. We have performed art appraisals for over 100 artists active between the 17th and 21st centuries representing dozens of art styles and periods.

“Great art picks up where nature ends.“

~ Marc Chagall

“Every collector can collect something that is part of the continuum that is art and be able to say, without stretching the truth, that there is an element of immortality in what they have collected.“

~ Stewart Turcotte
