How do I arrive at a value for your art? To determine a value I find art similar to the type of property I am appraising that has been sold in the open market place. Today, the art market is global, so the research also is global.
Written Appraisal Standards
All my written appraisals conform to the standards established by USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice), determined by The Appraisal Foundation, a not-for profit organization. The preparation of USPAP compliant appraisal reports are quite complex and time consuming to produce, but the report serves as a legal document that protects both client and appraiser and meets the needs of the IRS.
I am a senior appraiser of Asian art with the American Society of Appraisers. Please look at the American Society of Appraisers website for the standards and education requirements.
