NIA Art Appraisals

Fine Art Appraisals
conducted by the
National Institute of Appraisers (NIA)
Since you have collected artwork from many different places over the years, it is important to keep abreast of current fluctuations in the worldwide art market. The National Institute of Appraisers (NIA) has spent over 25 years handling fine art appraisals on everything from antiquities through contemporary art for corporate and individual collectors. The NIA offers valuations for insurance purposes, donation, resale, divorce, estate/probate situations, or simply for you to find out "what is it worth?". 

The NIA resume is impressive: clients include nearly every government agency, such as the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and the U.S. Marshall’s Office, as well as corporate powerhouses like AT&T, Times Mirror, CBS Television, Hilton Hotels, Dow Chemical, Shell Oil Co. and Paramount Pictures. The NIA has appraised more than 15,000 private, university and museum collections around the world and is also the leading source for the California Bar Association to use as expert witness testimony. 

The NIA is an organization comprised of certified appraisers with expertise in more than 20 areas of fine art. The NIA charges a flat-fee per item to appraise artwork. There are no hourly or percentage charges (as some appraisers assess) so you will know the total costs, up-front.  

Entrust the NIA with your fine art pieces. The NIA will maintain the strictest of confidentiality to you and, to avoid any conflict of interest, does not engage in the buying, selling, or referral of sale of any artwork.
