If you own a work of art, you probably need an appraisal. It is the only way to accurately describe the value of your artwork. A properly prepared appraisal by a qualified appraiser will clarify questions of value under all circumstances. There are several different types of appraisals employing different types of value, and each one serves a specific need. Mixing them up or confusing one for another can lead to serious legal and economic consequences for the unwary consumer.
An accredited appraiser will know the difference between Fair market Value and Replacement Value and Marketable Cash Value. Unlike refrigerators, automobiles, stereos and commercial furniture, it is often hard to place a dollar-and-cent value on artwork. Doing so involves research and calculation and documentation. This is the nuts and bolts of the appraisal profession. The value of an artwork or antique is rarely what you paid for it when you bought it. There was a time when the value of a painting or sculpture, like the value of art itself, was believed to be “in the eye of the beholder”.
That is no longer the case. The appraiser has to translate the appreciation for art into dollars and cents. The appraiser has to be able to defend his value conclusion in writing and often in a court of law, before the rigors of Internal Revenue Service investigators, and attorneys representing a contrary view. One of the key topics of appraisal certification by national organizations involves ethics. Certified appraisers have to take and pass an ethics exam. Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice spends several pages on ethics.
