ART INSURANCE COMPANIES
It's very important to make sure artworks that you own are correctly insured. Most likely your HOMEOWNERS
insurance company does not cover your art unless you have a special amendment to your policy, and current values.
The first thing you need to do is check with the agent of your HOMEOWNERS policy and tell them what you want insured.
Make sure your policy covers all of your valuables; artworks, jewelry and other valuable items.
You will most likely also need a current art appraisal and pictures for proof of value. This step can be expensive, and to lower the
costs it helps to have your original purchase receipts, artwork dimensions, condition of artwork, and if the artist is still active,
their website and or list of galleries selling their artworks. The more information you can provide the appraiser with the less time
they will have to spend researching the artwork. Here's a list of Art Appraisers to help you get started.
Another use resource to determine artwork value is online resource like Artprice.
They have large databases of art action results plus other useful information.
They are usually membership sites giving only limited information unless you at least get a trial membership.
We recommend trying Artprice if you have
researching artwork by a well recognized artist.
