Should a single Jean-Michel Basquiat painting cost more than an entire Old Masters auction? Why does Banksy’s auction record stand higher than Yayoi Kusama's? Will the values hold?
The strange, fickle, largely subjective nature of art valuation is one of the industry’s most enduring enigmas—and sources of complaint.
Our services have been used by private collectors, museums, institutions and insurance companies to determine the value of important works of art from modern and contemporary master paintings to prints, photographs and contemporary art installations.
Michael possesses in-depth knowledge of the art market and extensive experience valuing works of art. In determining the most accurate appraised value of any given artwork, Michael Maloney not only reviews auction records but also consults with the art dealers and gallerists most familiar with the artists work. Michael has long standing relationships with art dealers throughout the United States and the international art trade, which provide access to private sales information that is often vital criteria for valuation.
Michael also has a 100% acceptance rate with the IRS.
Since 1997 no donation appraisals have been questioned or challenged by the IRS.
Michael Maloney is USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice) compliant through May 10, 2024
