TAXATA was founded in 2010 to offer clients independent substantiated expert valuations / appraisals of fine art and antiques. To do so, TAXATA works with a flexible team of independent qualified experts to offer high quality valuations in a.o. the following areas:

  • European fine art 1500 – now (with an emphasis on Dutch art)
  • European decorative art and antiques
  • Objects in the cultural heritage realm / museum collections
  • Public art / monumental artworks
  • Artworks and objects with a special provenance

TAXATA has ample experience in the valuation of high value (<25 million euro) objects and museum collections, -please see clients – and serves as a valuable advisor and sparring partner in research-, valuation- and claims settlement issues.

RICS Red Book / International Valuation Standards (IVS)
When valuation reports are used as a base for financial decisions / the insurance of high value objects and collections / donations to museums, a solid basis for the valuation, transparency about process and considerations, and additional assurances of independence and expertise are appropriate. TAXATA is currently (2019) developing valuations according to IVS standards.

TAXATA director Patricia Jansma is the editor and co-author and editor of Federatie TMV curriculum for auctioneers, and writes about -among others- valuation.

She is a proud member of the RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) and PAIAM (Professional Advisors to the International Art Market).
