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 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 the less time they will have to spend researching the artwork. Here's a list of ART APPRAISERS to help you get started.

When researching an artworks value you might find an online art resource like ARTPRICE, or MUTAL ART or ARTNET to be useful. They all provide art price information based on past auction results. They require a membership to access most current information, and may be worth joining. We find them to be most useful if the artist is well known. Many professional appraisers also use one of these companies.

The companies listed below specialize in art insurance, you might also want to contact them.
