Painting Appraisals

Home / Store


Many people have contacted us throughout the years with questions about paintings or works of art they own.

If you have a painting you would like to get additional information on, or perhaps you know the artist, but would like some idea of its value, we would be happy to assist.

We do ask for a donation of $50.00 for a quick look, which would include some information on what we can tell about the piece from photographs.

If we believe the piece is worth over $1,000.00, we will recommend you pay an additional fee of $100.00, for which we will provide you information on what we believe the piece would be worth at fair market value based on current auction records of comparable pieces, as well as information about the artist and/or period. Additionally, we can provide information on how to go about selling it if that is what you wish.

If you believe you have a work by William Bouguereau, ARC Chairman, Fred Ross, is considered the world authority. If you believe you have a Bouguereau painting, please contact Mr. Ross at

All funds go to the Art Renewal Center for use in its scholarship program and other charitable works.

If you believe you have a work by Edmund Blair Leighton, Director of Operations, Kara Lysandra Ross, is currently researching the catalogue raisonné on that artist and is looking for information. If you think you may have an original painting, or even if you only have an old original period print by the artist, the information as to the title and publisher may be useful to her research. She does not charge for reviewing works by this artist. You can contact her directly at
