ART APPRAISALS IN ALBERTA
What is an art appraisal?
An art appraisal refers to a process of evaluating the history, quality, and value of a piece of fine art. The purpose of an art appraisal is to provide a well-researched and comprehensive estimate of a specific artwork’s worth, which can then be used for estate planning, insurance purposes, charitable donations, or selling. Similar appraisals can be performed for vintage and antique items.
The process typically consists of an in-depth examination of an artwork, the research of it’s origins and history, and a comparison to similar items on the market.

Our art valuation process
We examine and estimate the value of thousands of artworks every year. Our goal is to make the appraisal process as simple as possible for our clients.
To begin, we will ask for specific information regarding the purpose of the appraisal and the artwork that you wish to have appraised. An existing inventory of your collection, any original sales receipts, or any other information you may have about the artwork is helpful in keeping your costs to a minimum.
With the above information we can establish a time frame in which the art appraisal can be completed, as well as an estimate of the costs that will be incurred.
Our appraisal fees are based on an hourly rate, not on a per item or percentage basis. The fee will be refunded in part should you choose to consign all, or a portion of, the appraised property to Hodgins Art Auctions Ltd. within one year of the appraisal date.
