II. Getting your art valued
Hellenic Auctions does offer valuations of pieces of art created by Greek artists or inspired by them. We have two different procedures:
“Simple” valuations. In this instance, the owner of a piece of fine art asks the expert to take a quick look at his property and give him some idea of its quality and value. These valuations can happen electronically and are non-binding. When contacting the auction house to request a valuation, please also send as many high quality photos of the art piece as possible, especially of distinctive such as signatures or titles. Descriptions of mediums, additional documents, or a brief history of the item could be helpful but are not as important.
- A description of the medium item and its condition.
“Complex” valuations. Meant for individuals who intend on more than “just asking”, a “complex” valuation requires a preliminary discussion with the auction house, and an agreement on cost. We will need to see the original in person, and keep it on our premises for a few days until we have had the requisite time to assess it.
If you are interested in either of these, please use the contact form to send us an email.
