Clients frequently require the valuation of their artwork for insurance, estate, and resale purposes. When work has been created by a local artist, we are able to provide a valuation service. However, as we are not qualified or registered valuers, we recommend that clients seek independent professional advice. You may find the contact details for two of New Zealand’s most respected valuation services useful:

Neil Roberts of Independent Art Valuations Ltd in Christchurch.

With more than 25 years of appraisal experience, Neil is a trained artist and has both written and lectured on historical and contemporary New Zealand art. He was the senior curator at the Robert McDougall and Christchurch Art Galleries from 1979 to 2006. Neil is also one of the few valuers in New Zealand who neither buys nor sells art. You can contact Neil by email or by phone on (03) 3771435.
