Appraising art prints requires skill, experience, education, and the ability to describe and communicate value. The definition of an art print is art that was created to be mass produced. Art prints can be paintings, murals, water colors, mixed medi, or combined with other materials. In most cases art prints are often less valuable than original art by the same artist or in limited edition.
In appraising art prints the appraiser takes the following into consideration:
- The identity of the artist
- The condition of the art such as color fading, corners folding, or water damage
- The composition or design of the piece and how it relates to the artists work
- The lineage of the provenance of the art
