Simply enter an artist's name and the size of the painting or photograph and, upon matching a search with one of the c.700,000 artists in our records, we'll share an estimated value you should expect to pay. If you have already received a price from a gallery or dealer, we'll give you the confidence to know whether that price is in line with our data. The final step will be to contact the artist’s gallery, armed with all you need to know in order to make your dream purchase a reality.
Using machine learning, Limna analyses millions of data points in seconds – tracking every exhibition and every art fair, along with more information than we can list here. This is how we're able to give you an accurate valuation on the paintings and photographs that inspire you.
The algorithm augments the user's input, and takes into consideration factors from the start of an artist's exhibiting career to the present day (and even planned activity for the future), their sales history, and the size of artwork to provide an expected price estimation.
Currently, under 20% of our estimates disagree with the gallery price quotes. This is when you should consider your own motivations, review at the underlying data in the artist's profile more closely, and if it seems complete, then the quoted price might be too high — or perhaps it's a fantastic opportunity!
