Listing of professional art appraisers located in the state of California. Having a current art appraisal of the artworks you own is very important in case of damage or loss. We strongly suggest that you always have a up to date appraisal of your art and artworks. That way you will know the artworks value and can contact your insurance agent to make sure the artwork is covered for the correct value.

There are several types of appraisals and they represent different values. A good qualified and professional art appraiser can explain and help you in deciding which type of art appraisal you need. You will also find additional information, on our Art Appraisals page, which features appraisal associations.
