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 necessary. Now you can take advantage of that same service in three easy steps.


SKU: ae-epinion Category:


Upon the purchase of your E-pinion, Art encounter staff will contact you within 48 hours to receive the details of your artwork.

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

Click “Add to cart” to purchase your E-pinion. After our initial consultation, within 35-45 days Art encounter will submit to you written documentation on your artwork, chronicling our findings and resulting information 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 analysis on an important work of art.
  • 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 or further authentication.

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 research) and are not intended to be used as such. E-Pinions are designed for the client’s use only.
