Whatever your appraisal needs, we at de Kooning Experts deliver a service beyond the ordinary appraisal. A superior appraisal is based on the artistic merit of the painting rather than relying exclusively on auction reports, sales databases, or price guides. The nature of great artwork is difficult to quantify. The artistic value is beyond dollars and cents. It takes years of well-honed professional judgment, art appreciation and education to apprehend the difference between a good painting and a vastly superior painting by the same artist. Evaluating the compositions of Willem de Kooning, an Abstract Expressionist, requires a particularly discerning eye that is beyond the scope of ordinary appraisers. Not all de Koonings are created equal. At de Kooning Experts, we have the knowledge, ability and experience necessary to appraise the strengths and merits of your de Kooning as compared to his body of work.
We provide official appraisals of value for all purposes: Loan value. Insurance. Legal situations. Taxes. Estate planning. Distribution. Sale. We also provide informal estimates in cases where you need an idea of value very quickly.
