Do you know the value of your art?

Strauss & Co, Africa’s leading art auction house, has announced that they will be hosting a free valuation day in Windhoek on 29 April 2024. This event presents residents with an exclusive opportunity to have their artworks assessed and valued by experts.

The valuation day will take place at The Stellenbosch Wine Bar and Bistro, Tasting Room, Bougain Villas, 320 Sam Nujoma Drive, between 14h00 and 17h00.

Strauss & Co said whether you are looking to insure your collection, sell an artwork, or simply satisfy your curiosity, Strauss & Co offers a range of valuation methods tailored to client’s needs.

Alastair Meredith, Senior Art Specialist at Strauss & Co, explains: “Some collectors approach us for an accurate appraisal of their art collection for insurance purposes. Others seek to achieve the best possible price by selling their items at auction. And occasionally, individuals are simply curious about the origins and value of an artwork, even if they have no intention of ever parting with it.”

Strauss & Co offers free and confidential valuations of artworks in person or online, with no obligation to consign for sale. With a team of specialists who are experts in their respective fields, Strauss & Co also taps into a vast network of conservators, academics, and technical experts both locally and internationally.

“Namibian artists regularly feature in Strauss & Co’s live and online auctions in Cape Town and Johannesburg. Artists such as Adolph Jentsch, Axel Eriksson, Johannes Blatt and John Muafangejo have achieved particularly strong results,” adds Meredith.

To have your artworks valued, this can be submitted by submitting the art online through the Strauss & Co website, through an email to, or attend the valuation day on 29th April.

Strauss & Co said when submitting the artwork for valuation, artists must provide as much information as possible, including when and how you obtained it. Clear, focused photos from all angles, including the back and any relevant documentation, will assist in assigning a value to your artwork, Strauss & Co said.
