The importance of an independent appraiser
We are autonomous. That means we are not affiliated with an art dealer, or a gallery, so there is no conflict of interest. We appraise art for a variety of purposes, from insurance coverage to legal proceedings to tax disposition. We also consult others who need information in advance of their decision to buy or sell. Our professional opinion is not influenced by any clash between accurate Alexandria, VA art appraisal and the business of dealing in art.
We understand you may be getting advice to go to an auction house, or to a museum for appraisal. Bear in mind the art market changes rapidly, and you need more than standard answers or a casual opinion. Our integrity depends on remaining up-to-the-minute on the fluctuations in art value, and providing information tailored to your requirement.

Has it been assessed before? How long ago? If you happen to have what is called a “provenance” (a history), you can reduce the time it will take for verification, which could reduce your fee.
