Quality Art Appraisal Matters
Finding a qualified, independent, and ethical appraiser for your art work help you achieve your goals with confidence.

As academics by training, certified art appraisers by profession, we are committed to the connoisseiurship of Chinese and Tibetan cultures, traditions, arts and aesthetics, and the fairness of valuation with all our specialized skills, such as Asian languages.
Unfortunately, no art appraisal is universal. A designated art appraisal report conducted by a qualified professional is required to meet a specific appraisal need. A professional art appraisal serves two goals: 1) to provide the owner or the interested party with the information needed to understand and appreciate the art object in question, and 2) to help the owner realize his/her vision by proposing lawful solutions and tactical strategies. For example, if for elling your art work, you need to posses solid information about your art object and formulate an educated strategy for sales. Making a charitable donation or filing an estate tax, you need to follows the IRS rules for a qualified appraiser and presenting your evidence complying with IRS requirements. This is why you should commission an art appraisal from a qualified professional.
