Art Collections

Researching Your Artwork

NSLM staff are unable to provide appraisals or authentications for works of art in private collections. We are, however, able to suggest research options or offer informal opinions.

Below are some resources for locating qualified appraisers:

American Society of Appraisers
Appraisers Association of America
International Society of Appraisers
Virginia Conservation Association

Looking for a conservator to clean or restore your artwork?  Visit the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (AIC) website for helpful information and a directory of professional conservators.
