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:

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.


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.

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.
