Liz Anders & Associates provides independent and objective valuations of fine art including paintings, works on paper, photography and sculpture.

We appraise fine art personal property for the following purposes:

  • Insurance Coverage
  • Estate Tax
  • Equitable Distribution
  • Charitable Donations
  • Consultation for Sale
  • Damage and Loss Claims

An appraisal is an opinion of value based upon research of comparable objects within the most relevant market. At the beginning of the appraisal process, the property is physically examined, assessed and documented. After the documentation process, the property is thoroughly researched and a formal, written appraisal report is produced. Liz Anders & Associates art appraisals are written in accordance with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) as set forth by the Appraisal Foundation, which is recognized as the source for appraisal standards and qualifications. Liz Anders is a candidate member of the American Society of Appraisers (ASA) with a speciality in Fine Art and her appraisal reports meet all criteria for IRS regulations. Liz Anders & Associates ensures the final document is an accurate, credible, confidential and comprehensive appraisal report.

Our appraisal fees for all services are based on an hourly rate or on a project fee basis, never on a percentage of the appraised value.

Please contact us to discuss your appraisal questions and needs.
