                                                          End of Appraisal Services



     I no longer prepare appraisals for any purpose. Current activities are limited to art historical research and studies in cultural history. My core interests are in the cultures and arts of East Asia; however, I do take on projects in other areas as well. I remain active in providing advice to estate managers and collectors.
