What about that painting in Grandmother's attic?
The fee for a written appraisal for insurance, estate, or gift tax purposes starts at $250. For more than one painting or a personal visit by a gallery representative the fee increases. To begin the process, any appraisal materials, including photographs and all pertinent information (see list of questions in Sell Your Painting), should be sent with attention to Courtney Kopplin or e-mailed to [email protected]. The time frame for the completion of the appraisal depends on the number of paintings and the research required. If an artist's work falls beyond our usual area of expertise, then we will try to refer you to another specialist.
If you have any further questions about appraisals, or to arrange an appointment, please e-mail the gallery at [email protected] or call 617.536.6176.
