The Certificate of Reasonable Value (CRV) for the art listed is the written opinion from the October Gallery’s knowledge and experience in the African American Art market since 1985. The Gallery has built a solid reputation through years of practical experience and education in this field of interest.
CRVs are also based on photographs, images, written literature and other verbal and written information supplied by the client. Additional information, not shown on these certificates, may have been taken into consideration to properly prepare these certificates. Please note, no framing value is included in these evaluations, only the artwork is considered in the appraisals.
Certificates of reasonable value are issued as an estimate of value. Considerable research has been conducted to assure accuracy, however no guaranties are given or implied. All values are in US currency.
