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:




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.
