Our clients have their prints appraised for a variety of reasons. The two most common motivations are the desire to sell or insure a work of art. We can also help with estate valuation, tax-deductible donations and divorce settlements. Industry experts recommend having a print appraised every five years to accurately reflect economic fluctuations.
