Question ID: 27529
What words shall I use to find insurance values for wildlife art prints without checking EACH artist's name, please? For example, I'd like the value of one specific print by Vivi Crandall, 3 by Robert Bateman, 1 by Rod Fredrick, 2 by Mort Solberg, etc. Where can I go to find values on them ALL in one place? Thanks.

Researching your question brought me to the following site: http://www.artfinders.com/printart/artistindex.htm The examples you gave of Crandall, Bateman, Frederick, and Solberg all in one place was satisfied by the reference shown. You can click on the first letter of the person's last name and then click on their name to be sent to a page that shows their art and values various pieces by them with values shown by title. If your piece is not listed with a value, you can make a judgement as to its value based on the artists average value. If you need clarification of the information provided by this answer, please don't hesitate to ask. Great questions stimulate our researcher community. seedy Search Strategy: google search on each of the "example" artists names brought up various galleries that carried their work. Looking at links brought up the site shown in the reference which has the largest variety of artists.

Hello, There are a few ways to go about appraisals such as yours. Most of the value guides that are in print for various areas of collecting are compiled from the actual auction sale prices from houses such as Christies. For insurance purposes, the appraisal is for the replacement cost of any particular item. The easiest way to determine fair market value would be to use the "Show Completed Items" area of eBay. First you search for your particular item to see what is being offered and at what price. By clicking on the "Show Completed Items" link on the left you will be given a snapshot of all the prices paid for an item within the last 30 days. This would be a way of determining fair market value without leaving your home or paying an appraiser. I have included two links which should also help you. I have used Butterfield's before and been pleased. At the bottom of their appraisal page you will see a way to send them pictures of your items and they will mail you an appraisal for free.
