Information for Art Appraisals
In many cases we can provide you with useful
information about the identity of an item
and its history at no charge by posting an
image of it together with a proper
description to our company.
To do this you will need to contact us and
send an overall image and some detail images
electronically as an attached file with your
E-Mail which should contain whatever details
you can provide on the item, including
dimensions and signature or maker’s mark
details where apparent.
Alternatively you can send by mail
conventional 4” x 6” photographs to Van
Weyenbergh Fine Arts Inc..
We also offer a more comprehensive version of art
appraisal service for collectors who require
a written report.
The information provided could be as
relatively simple as determining the maker
of a specific item or, where that is
practically impossible to determine, the
school, workshop or manufacturer from which
it emanates. Or it could be as relatively
complex as providing identity, coupled with
original use, place of origin, and social
context and historical significance.
The fee for art appraisal is based upon time and
materials and the cost and ‘lead time’ to
completion of the report will vary according
to the complexity of the assignment.
Invariably this service requires seeing the
item (s) in person.
Having considered the information you submit we will be
able to give you a total cost estimate prior
to beginning the assignment. You can then
decide whether or not you want to commit.
If you would like Van Weyenbergh Fine Arts Inc. to
provide this service or would simply like to
know more about the process, please contact
us with details of your specific request.
