~ Asian Art Consulting & Appraisal ~

Payment Options

We encourage prospective clients who need Asian art consulting and appraisal services to write ahead of time to discuss the merits of the three different art appraisal packages we offer and how to pay for our services.

Once you and our art expert decided on a specific art appraisal package, we request payment of a retainer proposed by our art expert before we start the project. We send you a brief engagement letter for your approval prior to an appraisal. After an on-site inspection or you supply high-quality photos, we analyze the work of art and conduct research on your art work, and present you the result of our research in writing in accordance with the format of the specific appraisal package you choose for your art object.

Please Contact Us, if you have any questions.

When the report is finished (delivery time depends on the nature of the art object and complexity of the research), we ask for final payment. Once the appraisal fee is paid in full, we send you the final art appraisal report via USPS. A faster delivery method (FedEx, DHL, and UPS, etc) is available at your cost.

We highly recommend that you take advantage of our scholarly expertise if you are looking for the quality art consulting and appraisal services. Our qualifications are unmatched in the field. A Self-Contained Appraisal Report conducted by Dr. Yang is the gem of our professional services.

How to Sell Art Work

Selling artwork can be a big headache. Almost everybody finds it difficult to initiate a sale. When you need help, you may not be able to find the right sales agent to represent your artwork at its most appropriate marketplace.  Many people begin by contacting famous auction houses, such as Christie's and Sotheby's, but very few receive an insightful response—sometimes no word at all. Others spend hours on the internet without any concrete results. Many art owners give up their effort of trying by marketing their art work with no knowledge of its value at all and end with selling for far less.  Do these frustrations sound familiar? 

A successful sale is based on preparation. You need to possess solid information on your art work and formulate an educated strategy for sales. You may find the needed information online. You may be stuck in your research, since no quality information is available on your art work. In many cases, the problem lies in identification. Once you know what you have, who created it and the possible fair market value of your artwork in the current market, your marketing strategy will be effective.

Engaging the services of a qualified Asian art appraiser is a necessity. A real art professional is a vigorously trained individual who attacks research problems for living. Whatever your problem is, a qualified art professional will find the solution for you. If you need assistance with identification of Asian characters (name, inscription, signature and mark), you need the language skill of an Asian art consultant. If you feel trapped in your research and have exhaused your options, you need the expertise of an art historian. If you are unsure about where your art work rests on value, you need the services of an appraiser. A properly prepared appraisal often serves two goals. First, it provides you with the information needed to understand what you have and its market potential. Second, it answers your call for assistance with clear strategies for success.

Knowing when to engage an art professional is a judgment call. As the art market is growing more and more sophisticated and the challenges of Asian art are real, most art owners cannot afford the risk of selling art work without any professional guidance.  

Selling Your Art Work at an Auction House might help you better understand why your art works are rejected by auction houses and how to approach the art market.
