Private Sales & Valuations


We offer the service of selling an artwork on the clients behalf, as well as providing professional valuations.

Michael Fox is a registered valuer with the AVAA and has three decades of experience in the Australian and International Art Market.

There are a number of different types of valuation that we specialise in:

  • Insurance

    This valuation will dictate the full cost, inclusive of GST, to replace an artwork.

  • Market value

    Market value is based on the value of an artwork on the secondary market. It is based on our professional opinion of what the artwork may expect to achieve in a private sale.

  • Superannuation

    Valuations to enable the transfer of artworks from a self-managed superfund to one of its members.

  • Family division / matrimonial

    A market value of an artwork on the secondary market to be used by estate planners or the courts.
