Research Methods for Appraisers
Appraisal students and collectors learn about the tools that enable an appraiser to research a work of art or object, determine the appropriate market from which to draw comparables, write a narrative analysis, and assign a value. Suggestions are offered on the use of standard reference works and major reference centers in the New York metropolitan area. By completing a research project, participants gain broad exposure to the standards and methodologies used by accredited appraisers.
