We hope you will gain the knowledge you need to make an informed decision, and call Royalton Arts when you are ready to buy or sell James Sessions art.
James Sessions art collectors, dealers, and art galleries, base the value of your James Sessions painting on these SEVEN qualities:
Importance of the artist in today’s global art market: Art styles goes in and out of fashion, and artists historical reputation and importance fluctuates. Artists and paintings considered to be historically ‘important’ have greater value than paintings that are ‘decorative’. Also, certain periods of an artists career may be more ‘important’ and desirable. This is why a Picasso painting from the 1960′s sells for million and a Picasso from the 1930′s is 0 million.
Quality of the painting: All artists have good and bad days. There can be a 300%-1,000% difference in value between a average James Sessions painting and a great one.
Size of the work: Generally speaking larger paintings are more valuable. The exception is very large/oversize paintings which do not fit in most homes, and therefor have a limited market.
Condition: The condition of a James Sessions painting has a large impact on value. James Sessions Collectors want paintings in good condition, that are ready to hang. Painting that are dirty, have cracks, or tears in the paint, or need new frames can be worth substantially less.
Provenance: A paintings ownership history, and gallery/exhibit history can have an impact on value. A James Sessions painting which has been shown in important museums or galleries, featured in books, or has been owned by important collections is usually worth more.
Market conditions: How are similar James Sessions paintings selling at auction? James Sessions collectors will look at current comparable James Sessions auction results to determine what your painting is worth right now. (Note: when analyzing ‘raw’ auction data, there are many nuances and factors that affect auction results for specific paintings. It takes a high level of experience and market knowledge to determine why two seemingly identical paintings may have sold for vastly different amounts.)
Marketability: How much time will it take to sell your painting? Art dealers take into consideration how much time will be required to sell your painting. A painting that can be sold right away will get a higher price, than one which may sit in storage for 2 years waiting for the right buyer. It can easily take 6-12 months for a painting to be sold. This incurs, insurance, storage, and overhead costs, not to mention interest expenses and ‘opportunity cost’.

The TRUTH about art appraisals ‘they’ don’t want you to know about!
Do you already have a James Sessions art appraisal?
If so, you may be in for a rude shock if you expect to receive the ‘appraised value’ when you sell your painting.
The way most appraisers determine ‘value’ of your painting is by calling around art galleries to find out what they are selling similar paintings for.
The problem is that art galleries will always quote their highest ‘asking’ price.
For example, a gallery may be ‘asking’ a 0,000 ‘list price’ for a particular painting. The reality, is that they would sell it for 5-30,000 under the right circumstance. Moreover, that painting might fetch only 0,000 at auction.
The real ‘fair market price’ you can expect from a sophisticated collector, or dealer, will be within the range of auction prices: -12,000 – depending on a variety of factors.
As you can see, an ‘appraised value’ might be good for insurance purposes, in case you need to file an insurance claim, etc. However, a James Sessions ‘appraisal certificate’ is meaningless when it comes to what your painting can sell for in the market today.
The dirty secret of the ‘professional art appraisal industry’ is that an appraisal certificate is basically a worthless piece of paper designed to make owners feel good, by inflating the value of your painting, Typically, appraisals are inflated 200-500% over market value, depending on how knowledgeable the appraiser is. Just about anybody can call themselves an ‘art appraiser’.
Royalton Arts LLC does not provide James Sessions art appraisals. Because we are a buyer and seller, it would be unethical, and a conflict of interest to give you an ‘appraisal’ – if we are on the other side of the transaction.
As an ethical, and professional organization, we believe in complete transparency and fair dealing. Be wary of art dealers, and galleries who also offer ‘appraisal services’. Think about it: by human nature, it is impossible for any buyer to give you an objective, and fair appraisal when they are also trying to buy a painting at a low price.
So if you want to learn the value of your James Sessions painting, check current auction results instead of wasting money on appraisals.
