LEVEL 3: Fair Value Analysis

This online course introduces a framework for determining and analysing market value vs fair value of an individual art work.


LEVEL 3: Fair Value Analysis

This is the third online course in our 'Pathway to become an art market analyst'.

This course is a building block on both Big Data and the Art Market (Level 1) and Artist Market Analysis (Level 2), and takes the participant on an analytical journey to establish the market value and the fair value of an individual art object. The analysis is based on the Damien Hirst data provided in Level 2: Artist Market Analysis, and it is important that you finish this course before going on to Level 3.

The course introduces participants to the difference between market value and fair value, and provides a practical guide for using market trends to analyse and adjust comparable transactions, and to use this to help establish market value. The ArtTactic Market Metrics from Level 2: Artist Market Analysis, is brought into the analysis to establish the 'Fair Value' of the art work.

In addition to this, we will provide a 15 minute online Excel workshop on how to analyse comparable transactions using a subset of the data provided in the Level 2 online course.

The course includes:

  • Videos: You will have access to 1h 10m of online video content. The content of this course is building on ArtTactic's own framework for fair analysis and what Anders Petterson is regularly teaching for Art Business programmes at Sotheby's Institute in London. The course also include a 15 minutes Excel workshop.
  • Slides: The students can download pdf copies of the slides used in the presentations.
  • Excel spreadsheet: The student will have access to a subset of data (auction data for Damien Hirst) and a spreadsheet with both tables and graphical tools.
  • Certification [NEW]: The student will be issued with a certificate of completion when all the online videos have been completed.
