Disclaimer
We focus on previous auction data, not primary market sales. Our data may be incomplete or slightly inaccurate. Although we have comprehensive historical data on each piece, artist, their work, and their series drastically differ based on the artistic content, condition of the piece, colouring, methods, and many other factors. We therefore cannot guarantee that we, ArtVenture, can appraise or give you an exact representation of the future price and performance of the artwork and recommend you not to put undue reliance on this data.
