Information about works you own
About this service
The Gallery provides a free information service to members of the public.
Contact our library staff, either via phone on (02) 9225 1785 or using the form below.
As qualified researchers, they can help you find out more about an artwork you own, such as who created it, when it was made or who owned it before you. They can locate texts on relevant art historical periods or styles, auction records for similar works and, depending on the artist, catalogue raisonnés.
If further information or curatorial opinion is required, they will refer the enquiry on to the relevant curatorial staff.
This service replaces the Gallery’s weekly appraisals service.
We are not able to provide valuations of works of art or opinions on their merit. A PDF list of licensed valuers is available on the website of the Australian Office for the Arts.
If you require conservation work, see the database of conservators in private practice on the Australian Institute for the Conservation of Cultural Materials (AICCM) website.
