The staff of the Fine Arts Library are not qualified nor permitted to act as art appraisers; we cannot provide the estimated value of works of art.
The Appraisers Association of America Membership Directory is available in the art reference collection (Call Number:
HF5681 .V3 A66 2003/2005).
It is also available online (http://www.appraisersassoc.org/). This directory may be helpful in finding a qualified appraiser.
Because works of art may be sold at auction (whether the artist is living or deceased), using auction records is one way to find information about the value of art objects.
There are several auction record indexes in the Fine Arts Library. Keep in mind you may have to look at more than one year to find the last time a work by a particular artist was sold at auction.
All resources listed are located in the Fine Arts Library art reference collection.
