The Ryerson & Burnham Libraries cannot evaluate or appraise works of art, however we subscribe to a number of art price indexes and other databases that search auction results. Most of these indexes are available either in the Reading Room in print or accessible from the public terminals in the Reading Room.
Gordon's & Lawrence's Combined Fine Print Database includes Gordon's Print Price Annual (1985-current year) and Lawrence's Dealer Print Prices (1970-2006). Provides auction activity and dealer catalog prices on old master, modern, and contemporary fine prints; decorative, sporting, botanical, etc. prints; posters; livres d'artiste, books and periodicals with original graphics.
Types of material covered: Auction and dealer activity for houses and dealers covered
