Chinese Art Adviser & Certified Art Appraiser

Dr. Wei Yang, Asian Art Specialist

We are Chinese art professionals with experience and integrity. Quality, honesty and transparency are our most important values.  We never mislead you, and we will never ask you to pay for services that are unnecessary for achieving your goals. Our job is to provide you with objective advice. We are honest about the art you own and its likely performance in the current Chinese art market. The written reports we prepare are based on thorough research on the history, style, and artistic background of your art, as well as the recent performance of objects like it in the market place.

We are transparent in providing high-quality, professional services. Before we begin research, we state what you can expect in a written report, explain the way we figure costs, and ask for your approval in the form of an engagement letter. We insist that you understand the appraisal process before committing to it. We are happy to answer any questions, and we are often able to extend a discount for appraisal of multiple objects of a similar style or by the same artist or workshop.

We don't try to be an expert on all forms of Asian art, although we have been exposed to all major Asian cultural traitions and visual aesthetics in our graduate studies. We limit our practice largely to the areas in which we are qualified, by dint of our Ph.D. and M.A. degrees and our research experience: Chinese and Tibetan Art.

We take your art consulting and appraisal needs seriously. We pledge to serve you with expertise, integrity, and professionalism.
