Accurately appraising van Gogh art

An appraisal is an estimation of the value of a work of art. At Van Gogh Experts were have the necessary experience with the art market in general and van Gogh in particular to accurately asses the value of his works.

Relatively few works by the artist come on the market every year, and those that do tend to command high prices. Past sales of van Gogh paintings have occasionally set records. The Portrait of Dr. Gachet sold at Christie’s in 1990 for $82.5 million (at the time the most ever paid for a painting at auction). Knowing what your van Gogh is worth in advance can help you make better informed decisions for any circumstance. Additionally, works by van Gogh are in exceptionally high demand and their value continues to increase. For this reason, if you own a van Gogh it is good practice to have in appraised every five years for insurance purposes.

Both market forces and qualities inherent to the work of art will affect the value of a painting, drawing or print by Vincent van Gogh. In addition to past sale results, the variables under consideration include the subject matter, the artistic merit, the condition of the work and the security of the attribution. At Van Gogh Experts our researchers and appraisers have years of experience with the artist and his performance on the art market, and are thus familiar with how extrinsic and intrinsic factors will affect a van Gogh’s value.
