Best Art Appraisers In Denver

November 1, 2010 12:38 PM


Few of us are skilled enough to know whether a piece of art is just a dust-covered, paint-splashed canvas in Grandma’s attic or a masterpiece lost to historians and collectors. Luckily for all would-be treasure hunters, Denver is home to appraisers who are treasures in their own right.

Jack Henry Kunin Appraisers

540 S. Forest Street
Denver, CO 80246
(303) 332-0563

Jack Kunin is recognized as an icon in art appraisal throughout the Denver region and beyond. A former art history professor engaged in the academic rat race, Kunin said he dropped out to follow a passion that allowed him to “live happily ever after.” Now with over 30 years of art appraisal experience focused in European, Pre-Columbian and American works, Kunin avoids getting caught up in academic trends that often don’t reflect interest in the real market. Instead, he is focused on what people want on their walls, where masterpieces will sell best, and those times when he can tell someone that they have a very real treasure on their hands. With a history of accuracy and concern for the art that he studies, Kunin’s hand continues to paint the horizon of Denver’s art appraisal scene.
