HELP INFORMATION ABOUT ART APPRAISAL:

We have a new website specially dedicated only to art appraisals and art authentication of any fine art artists with many pages with responses to your questions and help topics:
In this page we will guide you to obtain an art appraisal or an art authentication, also what we need to know from you about your artwork in order to make an appraisal or an authentication, also to learn how to make the difference between a print, a lithography or etching, a watercolor, a pastel or an oil painting, or how to make:

the difference between an original and a print

Also if you have a previously denied of authentication how we can help you to become an authentication or art appraisal with the new elements you can provide us, or to submit to the recognized expert a complete scientific file if this wasn't done before. With a clear scientific file it is possible to become a remove of a negative opinion from the expert, this process takes time and needs much diplomacy.

More info about denied of authentication

This page is very important to learn the difference between a painting appraisal and a painting authentication. As we told before it is very important to make the difference between a painting appraisal and a painting authentication, an appraisal doesn't mean you have an authentic painting, we think that an appraisal without a conviction of authenticity makes no sense, the first what an expert will look at: "Is the painting a possible authentic painting?".

We will refuse any appraisal mission,
if we are not convinced of the authenticity.

Generalities for Art Appraisal

In many cases we can provide you with useful information about the identity of an item and its history 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.

Fees

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 to provide this service to you or would simply like to know more about the process, please contact us with details of your specific request.
