Authentication and Appraisal Service

The Daumier Organization

offers appraisals / authentications for Daumier prints, drawings, sculptures and oil paintings. We evaluate single works of art, illustrated books, as well as entire collections.

Please note

We supply a full background study containing information on provenance, exhibitions, literature, technical details, similarities etc.

What we will need from you

Digital photographs (high-resolution) and descriptions, measures, paper type etc. (all the information you can supply) of the unframed work, recto and verso.

Please contact us at info(at)daumier(dot)org for details and quotes. Prices for appraisals of prints, drawings and paintings will be calculated according to the time needed. An advance estimate will be supplied.

A caveat

We reserve the right NOT to accept doing an appraisal. We do appraisal work only if right from the beginning we see a realistic chance of a positive outcome. This way we economize on our limited time as well as on our clients’ funds.

Note that we may use any photographs and information supplied by you for the Daumier Register website.

Works which we consider as authentic will be added to the DAUMIER REGISTER©.


Please note that the attributions in the Daumier-Register of works by Daumier (“original”, “after Daumier”, “unconfirmed”) have been assembled to our best knowledge based on available art historical documentation. However, we assume no liability for the correctness of the information provided.
