Atkinson Fine Art Apraisals

Preparing for an Appraisal

Why are you requesting an appraisal?

• Updating insurance on your artwork

• Have a loss or damage claim

• Donating artwork to a museum or non-profit organization

• Planning or settling a family estate

• Planning to sell or purchase an artwork

Have on hand any documents that specifically relate to the artwork such as:

• purchase receipts

• family letters or oral history

• names of family members from whom the work descended

• articles or books that refer to the artwork or artist

• any information you have gleaned from your own research online or other methods

• any other pertinent information

Photograph the work:

• take several snapshots of the front of the painting or sculpture

• close-up of the signature or any other markings if there are any

• photograph the back of the artwork

• detail of any inscriptions

If you can take a photo with your phone, you can text the images to me,

540-312-8465 or send as a file to my email: [email protected]
