1. An Inventory Is Step 1 to a Catalog. HvS art needs a catalog. The First step is to be inventoried.
2. A Posted Inventory Extends the Market for HvS Art. By adding, bit bit, over time, reproductions of art in each family's collection, the location of HvS art is established and prices are more readily established. At the moment, HvS art is primarily auctioned in Dublin. HvS is considered an Irish artist. Prices of Hilda van Stockum's auctioned art are listed by AskART; her artist number is 133397. Of course, usually the best art is retained by families or in museums (like Dublin's National Academy of Art, which has two HvS portraits of Evie Hone in its collection) and is not in the marketplace.

4. It Could Help Sustain Boissevain Books. When artwork is sold through Boissevain Books, half is retained by Boissevain Books and half is payable to the seller; this helps to support the work of Boissevain Books in keeping the interest in HvS's writing and art alive. When rights are sold by Boissevain Books, half the revenue is payable to the owner of the rights. In the case of HvS rights, Boissevain Books is already the owner of record.
The art was taken at an angle because it avoids glare. A professionally lit photo of the artwork can be taken square on. My thinking was that the photo is less likely to be useful for an unauthorized commercial reproduction. But my sister Brigid says, no, I should get proper lighting and retake them all. I will do this in due course...

This self-portrait is being appraised at a low price for a Hilda van Stockum painting. Usually one would expect to see a zero added to the prices, and some of her painting would have two zeroes added.
One reason for a wide range in prices is that HvS did not destroy her less-worked-out art. She respected God's small creatures, and respected her own smaller creations. They all were entitled to live.
