Online Art E-Pinions


Due to popular demand, Art encounter is excited to offer “E-Pinions” on fine art objects to collectors around the world. For some time now, Art encounter has offered “in-house” consultations for clients on artworks where a formal appraisal was not immediately needed. Now you can take advantage of that same service in three easy steps!


SKU: ae-epinion Category:


(Online Art E-Pinion) is currently under construction.  Please click “add to cart” above to order and pay. Then click here to submit your art information, requests, questions and photos through our email at



Complete the form below as best you can, then click (Send). Our form also allows you to send us up to 2 images of your art.

Art encounter staff will evaluate your materials and conduct research and analysis on historical, market and quality characteristics inherent to your art object.

Within 35-45 days, Art encounter will submit to you written certification on your artwork, documenting our findings and resulting “E-Pinions” on its provenance (history), quality, and potential for value within the market.

When do we recommend our “E-Pinion” services?

  • For that unknown artwork in your collection you’re curious about.
  • For additional certification and analysis on an important piece.
  • For artists: a professional opinion of the quality and potential market for your creations.
  • To help you make an informed decision on an artwork’s potential purchase or sale.
  • To help determine whether a work merits a certified appraisal.

PLEASE NOTE: Although much of the due diligence is the same, Art encounter’s “E-Pinions” are NOT certified appraisals (which typically entail physical inspection and a more thoroughly documented scope of work) and are not intended to be used as such. “E-Pinions” are designed for the client’s use only.
