Art appraisers can be employed in art museums, art galleries, or may also work independently as consultants of investment dealers and art collectors. Art appraisal is usually important for those investing in artworks and is also needed for insurance or auction purposes, as well as for liquidation of assets. Art appraisers study and evaluate artworks for their value and authenticity. It is important to have a keen eye for detail since art appraisers should be able to detect forgeries. Aside from knowledge in the arts, they must also be familiar of market prices of particular artworks.
