The artworks are on loan from the Government Art Collection. The Collection has advised us that it is not possible to give an accurate estimate of the value of the Government Art Collection or individual works, neither of which have a current market valuation. The current monetary value of a work of art can be accurately assessed only at the time of either purchase or sale or by professional valuation. In the former case, the Collection is not actively traded; in the latter, it would not be justifiable expenditure of public funds to have the whole Collection valued professionally.
