Our expert appraisals of individual artworks, not to mention entire collections and estates, are confidential and free of charge.
Once you have received our appraisal, you are the one to decide whether to consign your artworks to auction or not. Our appraisals are based on our decades of experience and on our analysis of the international auction results achieved for comparable works. They are subject to various criteria such as the price trend for the respective artist’s works and the development on the art market in general, along with the technique, motif, period of creation, size, provenance, and condition of the artwork in question.
To make our services conveniently accessible from your location, we have appointed local representatives in a number of German regions (Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Hesse, Northern Germany, Rhineland/Ruhr, and Westphalia) as well as in Switzerland (Zurich), Italy, France, and the United States (New York and Los Angeles). They work closely with our main office in Berlin and stand ready to assist you, e.g. by having your artworks sent to Berlin as part of a collective shipment, thereby reducing the cost to you.
