Does your collection have insurance covered for its value?

If fire destroyed your fine art originals and prints, wouldn’t you expect your insurance company to pay the current value instead of only covering the costs for canvas, paint and a few hours of applying brush strokes?

Of course, you would! But, surprise…

Most insurance companies will not pay the current value but an amount closer to the cost of raw materials – unless you could prove the higher value. Yet the disaster that took your art could easily claim your receipts or other documentation as well.
