Art Auction estimates

Aspire’s Valuations Department provides bespoke inventories and appraisals which are suitable for auction valuations, probate and estate purposes for executors, solicitors and other professional advisors. Aspire’s fully illustrated valuation documents are the industry standard.

Our team provides valuations for Modern and Contemporary art from Africa and international artists that can serve as the basis for consignments, insurance and taxation and are indispensable for collection management and informed estate planning.

Every valuation is uniquely developed around the collector and the specific collection, ranging from single items to large, diverse collections.

Our industry knowledge, experience and expertise allows us to offer the highest level of service, insight and accuracy with the concomitant confidentiality for private collections, museums, corporations and fiduciaries.

Our team is available to produce valuation documents based on receipt of detailed information and high-resolution images and provide updated figures for collections previously provided by Aspire.

We also provide valuations based on in-person inspections, house visits and the like.

Our service suite of valuations includes:

  • Valuations for Sale (by Auction or Private Treaty)
  • Valuations for Insurance
  • Valuations for Collection Management purposes
  • Valuations for Taxation purposes (Inheritance; Estate; Donation; Gift and Capital Gains Tax)
  • Valuations for Family Division purposes

If you wish to sell with Aspire, please access our free and easy-to-use online valuation platform.

You need only provide some information about the artwork and reasonable quality images and our Specialists team will review your submission and provide preliminary auction estimates for your works that are suitable for inclusion in one of our sales.
