How do I determine the value of a painting?

Have the value of your painting estimated by the specialists at Artpeers. Our experts take a number of factors into account when it comes to estimating the value of your painting. The value of a painting is determined by supply and demand at a particular time through auctions and art dealers, among others. For a realistic estimate, recent auction results, the reputation of the artist but also the specific characteristics of your painting are considered. For example, if the painting is damaged, this often has a negative impact on the value compared to a painting that is in good condition. Also, the dimensions and the representation can affect the auction value assigned to your painting. Therefore, always make sure that your request for a valuation of your painting is as complete as possible.
