Appraisals serve many different uses. Each use calls for a special type appraisal. The descriptions and values made by a qualified art appraiser assure technical accuracy and appropriate market level valuation.
An art appraisal is a legal document as important as a will. It is the only way to accurately describe and value your artwork. A properly prepared appraisal by a qualified appraiser will clarify questions of value under all circumstances.
To prove irrefutable possession at the date of valuation, provide needed protection in the event of a loss, and to assist in establishing proper insurance coverage.
