Explore How Professional Personal Property Appraisers Approach Their Work
The perfect primer for those interested in how works of art are examined, researched and evaluated by appraisers.
Appraising Fine Arts Overview explores how professional personal property appraisers approach their work when forming an opinion of an object’s value. Appraising a work of art demands a wide spectrum of knowledge and experience in a combination of areas – attributions, history of ownership, forgery detection, and market influences to name a few. Topics will include documenting works of art, understanding the characteristics that drive value, and explaining the methodologies that an appraiser uses in diverse contexts. Participants will gain valuable practical and theoretical knowledge in a number of areas - such as the tools that appraisers employ when inspecting and identifying fine art objects, how condition can be viewed in diverse situations, and to what extent museums, collectors, galleries and auction houses have a role in influencing the art market and how that affects value. The course will provide best-practice guidelines for pursuing and expanding research avenues. Finally, the class will provide vivid, real-world examples and in-depth observations from a seasoned Fine Arts and Fine Arts Photography specialist.
