What should I know before considering loans on my Marc Chagall art & paintings?
It’s always useful to understand how your paintings will be appraised so that you have more of an idea of the value you can expect. Although a professional will ultimately be needed to give you an accurate quote, the following are good aspects to bear in mind before pawning your piece:
If your painting is well-preserved, it will fetch a greater value than if it’s beginning to deteriorate. Pieces of art that have imperfections like cracks, scratches, or discoloration will often decrease in value depending on their severity. It’s vital that you store valuable art properly, so you need to act quickly if your paintings are in an environment that puts them at risk. If you think your piece might be too damaged to be worth pawning, let our experts take a look: you might be pleasantly surprised.
Having proof that your painting is authentic can make all the difference, as proving its authenticity without documentation can be a lengthy process. You should do your best to find any information about the piece’s previous owners, as well as a certificate to state that you are the new owner, before trying to pawn it.
Quality and size
Sometimes bigger paintings are worth more, though this also depends on other factors like quality. If a piece required a lot of skill to produce or many hours of work, then it can often be valued more highly than simple pencil drawings from sketchbooks. An expert with knowledge of the desirability of different pieces amongst collectors can give you a more accurate idea.
