About Art Preservation Services

Appraisal & Evaluations

We provide detailed appraisals for the purpose of insurance, fair market value, donation, and estate tax. APS can review your corporate, private, or non-profit collection onsite and provide formal insurance evaluations, as well as identify any present condition issues. Upon request, an appraisal can be performed for a piece undergoing restoration at our facilities. Although we do not purchase artwork, APS often acts as a liaison between the seller and various auction houses such as Christies, Sotheby’s, and Leslie Hindman, among others.
