Chartered Arts & Antiques Surveyor
Valuation of art & antiques, art in public space, and objects in the cultural heritage realm. Interests: valuation methodology and standards; assessing museum collections; the art market. When valuation reports are used as a base for financial decisions / the insurance of high value objects / donations to museums, a solid basis for the valuation and transparency about process and considerations plus additional assurances of independence and expertise are appropriate. With my company TAXATA I am currently (summer 2018) developing RICS Red Book / IVS compliant valuations of art and antiques.
