C. VAN NORTHRUP, ASA, FINE ART
In Honor and Memory of Our Dear Friend and Colleague Van Northrup.
We were incredibly blessed to have C. Van Northrop with Geolat Companies since the very beginning. His specialties were in the valuation of fine art, fine craft, 19th and 20th century furniture, avant-garde design, china, glass, silver and photographs.
He was an Accredited Senior Appraiser (ASA), of the American Society of Appraisers, tested in appraising fine art. He was an incredible leader and mentor in his industry; Van even developed courses for the University of Indiana, covering the appraisal of limited edition prints; the ethics, logic, terminology and reasoning of the appraisal process; government tax and bankruptcy regulations and appraisal procedures; and appraisal report writing – basic, intermediate and advanced.
Furthermore, Van was a highly regarded and sought after expert on the appraisal of sports memorabilia and wine cellars, and served as a judge at the Federal Duck Stamp Contest, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.
The Geolat Family truly misses such an amazing man and soul, that touched so many lives. Van, you will always be in hearts.
