Auction Estimates

Request an auction estimate for an individual artwork by e-mail

You would like to sell a work of art in auction at Artpeers. But how much is it worth? What is a realistic starting bid? Our specialised auctioneers can answer these questions. To receive a preliminary estimate for an individual work without any obligation to sell, please send us your request by e-mail with all relevant information about the artwork.

We will need the following information to be able to establish a proper auction estimate:

  • Sharp photographs of: the entire work (front), the signature, the edition number and/or marks, and, in case of a painting on canvas or panel, also of the back of the work.
  • The dimensions of the work and, insofar as known to you, the technique and/or materials used.
  • Its provenance, insofar as known to you. If you have a proof of purchase and/or documents from previous valuations etc., please send these to us as well. All additional information is welcome and will contribute to a better auction estimate.

Please collect all information and send us an e-mail (with attachments).

We will handle your request as soon as possible. You will receive an indication of its worth by e-mail within 7 working days. No rights can be derived from this estimate. We do not provide a valuation report.

Our expertise lies in classical, modern and contemporary art and design. We do not provide auction estimates for antiques, tribal art and Asian art.

Auction estimates for individual works are free of charge. We assume that you have the intention to sell the estimated object in auction at Artpeers. Therefore, we do not provide any valuation of collections or estates for insurance purposes or otherwise.

Bigger collections: if you wish to request an auction estimate for more than 10 works, to have your collection auctioned by us or to only begin dispersing your collection, you will find more information here.
