How do I find out how much a painting is worth?

Answer

You can find out how much a painting is worth by having the work authenticated and appraised. You can also get advice from a professional conservator or take a tour to the library and familiarise yourself with the artist and other of his works and what they are worth and this will help you in determining what the painting you have is worth.

It is possible to look up auction records in the reference section of your local library, to get a general idea of what an artist's works fetch. There are several annual publications which list hundreds of thousands of sales results. One good online resource is Artcult, which has a freely accessible database of price ranges for many artists. And if you are willing to pay, you can get full auction results online at several sites, including artnet.com and artprice.com.
