Abstract

Introduction. Photography is one of the most important sources of objective historical information. The modern market of historical and artistic photos is active according to the indicators of sales at auctions.
Problem. The issue of developing unified regulations for the independent evaluation of historical and artistic photos is a topical task in forensic examination, evaluation activities and market trade.

The aim of the article is to describe the author’s approach to the analysis of the state of the market of historical, artistic and technical photographs, the application of a set of criteria for their independent commodity assessment and cost forecasting.
Methods. A database of initial data on the value of artistic, historical and scientific photographs put up for public sale at the Violity
auction, which consists of 100 photos samples, has been created. To approximate the observed indicators of the cost of hotographs, the author’s mathematical model is proposed, according to which the estimated cost indicators for specific examples are calculated.
Results. The distribution of cost indicators of artistic, technical and historical photographs on the Ukrainian market is analyzed, and also three intervals with different tendencies to increase their value during the auction are distinguished. The parameters of the regression equation for predicting the value of photographs in the tasks of expert evaluation are calculated and two examples of evaluation are given.
Conclusions. Based on a set of criteria, the evaluation of photographs put up for public sale was carried out. In the tasks of forecasting the value of artistic, historical and scientific photographs, it is advisable to rely on the results of analysis of the market of such objects. The method of forecasting the value of photographs based on their qualitative characteristics is the most effective in applied tasks to determine the level of possible losses of the owner in case of loss, insurance amounts and liquidation value. The issue is especially acute in connection with the hostilities in Ukraine and the destruction of regional fund materials of national, historical and public importance.
