Information on works you own

The Gallery provides a free information service to members of the public.

Appraisals, authentications and valuations of artworks are NOT available through the Gallery.

Visit the library to do research

The library and archive staff may be able to help you find information about your artwork. Research can be conducted to locate biographical information, auction results, history of ownership (if recorded) or other relevant information if available.
