The Art of Appraisal

Appraisers are independent, objective experts who are capable of accurately determining and substantiating an asset’s value. 
Art Peritus is considered to be one of the industry’s foremost appraisal authorities.


In the realm of self-regulated appraisal practices, Art Peritus stands out for its commitment to rigorous standards. Our appraisers and internal staff maintain compliance with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), and a considerable number of our specialists hold certifications from the Appraisers Association of America (AAA) and other organizations. The meticulous oversight of our dedicated account managers ensures that the requisite level of certification required for each appraisal need is met.

Scope of

Art Peritus prides itself on operating a comprehensive global network of seasoned professional appraisers who possess expert knowledge across a diverse spectrum of collecting categories. From fine art and wine to watches and rugs & tapestries, our network's breadth of expertise ensures accurate and insightful valuations for every appraisal need.


Within the realm of appraisers, there exist specialists with in-depth expertise in specific areas and generalists with extensive, broad-ranging knowledge. At Art Peritus, our team exclusively consists of trained and certified specialists. However, recognizing the practicalities of certain projects, we strategically deploy capable generalists, including our account managers for on-site inspections to optimize efficiency and reduce client costs.


In essence, appraisers champion not only the truth but also the art assets they evaluate. As seasoned experts, the role of Art Peritus involves providing insightful consultation on authenticity without formally certifying it. Our focus is uniquely dedicated to advocating for the artwork or objects integrity and ensuring a thorough understanding of its inherent value.
