Art is a very important form of expression and also an important part of our culture. It is important to value art as it is equally important to know the value of your art. This blog will be a guide on how to value your art and why it is important to do so.
Do you know the value of your art? If you don’t, you’re not alone. The fact is that most artists don’t know how to accurately value their own work.
Artists are generally not business people. They might be very successful at their craft, but they lack the experience of working in a business environment. In addition, many believe that if they can just get their work in front of the “right” people, then everything else will fall into place and they’ll be rich and famous.
This is part of what is known as the “lottery mentality.” It’s when people believe that success or fortune is just one lucky break away. They think that if only they can get discovered by the right person, or win a competition, or get picked out of a crowd, then everything else will fall into place and they’ll make tons of money doing what they love without having to do any work.
The truth is that it doesn’t work that way. It’s not easy to become famous and it’s even harder to become wealthy. There are no shortcuts and there is no magic formula. You have to learn how to do business if you want to succeed.
So how do you go about learning how to do business? The first thing you
Art is a special thing and I’m sorry for those who don’t get it. But if you see this blog, chances are you have some sort of art collection or at least you have some knowledge about art.
This is a place where we could hopefully share our experiences and help each other with the difficult task of valuing our precious works of art.
The first step in valuing your art is to know what it is worth, which can be done in many ways. I will present them in a series of posts, so that we all can understand better the steps required to make such a valuation.
In this post I will talk about some basic things that everyone should know when it comes to art valuation, like: understanding the market and how you should behave with your artwork.
Why do I value my art? Because it makes me money! What else, right? This is one of the basic aspects everyone should understand when valuing his/her belongings. You want to sell your artwork because you believe someone will pay more for it than what you bought it for. So the first thing to do is research the market and find out how much similar works by other artists are selling for, which is probably the easiest way to see if your
There are so many reasons to want to know the value of your art, a lot of which have to do with whether you’re going to make money or not.
Art is a very big industry, but there are few art advisors outside of the big auction houses. I’m lucky because I get to work with some of the best collectors in Los Angeles and they’re always asking me how they should value their art.
In my opinion, if you want to sell your art at auction (or privately), it’s important that you know the value of your work. You can either do your research yourself or hire an independent appraiser (like myself). It’s important that you don’t use the auction house’s appraisals because they have an interest in pushing up the high end of the market.
The best way to sell your work is through word-of-mouth and private sales. If you have friends who are artists, chances are you’ll end up selling pieces informally between one another. And because there’s no intermediary for private sales, you’ll get a higher price for it.

The art market is a multi-billion dollar industry, with annual sales of over $65 billion in the United States alone. When it comes to the value of art, the stakes can be high: recent estimates show that paintings by Vincent van Gogh and Pablo Picasso have appreciated at a rate of 10% per year since the 1970s. The question, “What is my artwork worth?” is one that every artist needs to ask themselves.
Trying to answer this question can lead to incredible frustration when it seems like no one has a definite answer. In reality, there are steps you can take to determine an accurate estimation of how much your artwork is worth.
Art appraisals are subjective processes that are based on a variety of factors such as the name of the artist, media used, quality of work, rarity and more. Art appraisals can be done on commissioned pieces or original works not purchased by collectors. They can also be done for insurance purposes and estate planning. A licensed appraiser will ensure that your art is valued accurately and fairly in accordance with industry standards. Appraisers also provide unbiased opinions as well as information regarding secondary market trends and current market conditions..
The art world is evolving quickly, both on the demand and supply side. As a result, even professionals can be fooled into valuing artwork incorrectly.
The net result of all this change is that it’s easier to be in error about the value of an artwork than ever before. Before you open your mouth to tell a seller “this isn’t worth what you think it is,” please make sure you know what you’re talking about.
The true value of art is not in money, but in a language that allows us to communicate.
Art is more than a commodity; it’s a language. It’s a way to travel from your mind into the minds of others, and from their minds back into yours. Art is more than just a financial investment; it’s an investment in our culture and our society.
You can’t learn how to create art by reading about it, or listening to someone who knows about it. You have to do it yourself, and then you will understand what it’s all about. You have to work at it, and you have to show other people what you’ve done, and listen to them carefully, and ask them what they think, and take that back into your own work — until the ideas get so tangled up that you can’t tell where one person’s imagination leaves off and the other person’s begins. That’s when the art comes into being, when those two sets of images are braided together.
When we see something beautiful, someone has made art and we have received it. When we make something beautiful ourselves, we share a piece of ourselves with others. The process is collaborative: every artwork carries the signature of everyone who had anything to do with its
