FAQS – Frequently asked questions
What is an AMR Index?
How does AMR collect its data?
Transactions on Art, Antiques and Collectibles are recorded from auction houses worldwide and updated to AMR’s database every month. Data analysts with specialist knowledge of art history, then categorise each individual lot into Painting (unique two-dimensional works), Sculpture, Photographs and Sculpture. For Antiques and Collectibles, we work with industry experts in each field to value a ‘basket of goods’ and update prices once or twice yearly.
What is the Revaluation tool?
Art Market Research’s indexes help you work out how much a work of art or antique could be worth on the open market today. If you know how much an item cost in the past, AMR’s revaluation tool will help you confidently estimate current values.
You can find the revaluation tool on every chart, along with a table with individual indices used to drive the valuation including the number of auction lots.
Why are AMR's indices considered a benchmark ?
Does AMR charge customers for access?
Yes. AMR offers quarterly or annual subscriptions so clients have hassle-free access to the indexes they need. The cost of subscription depends on the number of people in a company who require access and the number of indexes they create. With a quarterly subscription, you can also request up to three customised indexes with components of your choice.
If you are interested in one or two indexes, we can create these for you. Contact us for pricing.
