Dr. Marcus Oertel valuates your Asian artwork online

This year, because of Covid19, we organised an ONLINE evaluation week for Asian art. Take pictures of your Japanese woodblock print, Netsuke, Okimono, your Chinese ceramics, bronze, painting and other Asian objects and submit online.

23rd - 27th November 2020

From November 23 - 27 2020, the renowned expert for Asian art Dr. Marcus Oertel will evaluate your objects by your submitted picures without charge and nonbinding and can also advise you if you are interested in expanding or improving your collection.


Dr. Marcus Oertel valuated Asian art for international auction houses many years. For Christies Paris, he was supervising the „Collection Yves Saint Laurent et Pierre Bergé“ and for the German TV channel NDR he was on the show “Lieb und Teuer”. Dr. Oertel is a freelance art historian, art consultant and art education.
