Quiz: Do you have a hidden treasure in your attic?

Whether you have an old painting hanging unloved in a corner, or an inherited heirloom languishing in the attic, you could be in possession of a hidden treasure. Find out what your art could be worth with SoGlos's quiz.

If you’re questioning the worth of your artwork, Fresh: Art Fair offers the ideal opportunity to have your old paintings professionally valued. Leading auctioneers Bonhams will be at the fair to provide complimentary valuations on up to three old pieces – early 20th century, Victorian or earlier.

If you need any persuasion, Fresh: Art Fair has shared incredible true stories of surprising valuations on Antiques Roadshow, including a 17th century Anthony Van Dyck portrait, purchased for £400 and found to have a value of around £400,000.

What’s more, a Victorian portrait by Dutch painter Lawrence Alma-Tadema was discovered on the show and valued at €230,000 to €350,000, with the record sale price for the artist’s work set in New York for a much larger Neo Classical work at $36 million.

Fresh: Art Fair will take place at Cheltenham Racecourse from Friday 12 to Sunday 14 May 2017. For more information see Fresh: Art Fair at Cheltenham Racecourse, call (01242) 224734, or visit freshartfair.net directly.
