|How should a work of art be evaluated?
A work of art should be evaluated by dividing its social or political worthlessness by the square root of its aesthetic indispensability.
I believe we were created to be relational people, so if a piece of art stirs emotion, feelings, or a response in someone, then that artwork has value. "Viewing" art should be active; it should open communication or dialogue between the canvas (or other medium) and the viewer.
Personally, does the piece touch or move the viewer? I think that if an artist has accomplished this that there has to be a certain level of mastery present.
through the knowledge of History of Art
everybody has different approach towards art evaluation. due to varied experiences.
For me how an art work speaks to me I evaluate that perticular piece through the dialogue or conversation.
If a work of art grips the attention, maybe there is something worthy. But in general it's a question of individual feeling and perception. Nobody can evaluate if a kind of work is better than another one, being sure he's right.
Very difficult to do fairly. The reason for this is: there are beginners who need incouragement not criticing, there are Sunday painters who paint as a hobby and sometimes consider themselves proffessionals, and there are professionals who paint for a variety of different reasons. It is a very personal appeal. There are standard structural rules for criticing but the left brain gets involved and I'm not sure it really has a place in such a spiritual world.
On a personal level, if you love it or not, if it has meaning to you.
If it touches you, or moves you, or makes you think, or if you just like it. It's good.

I think the evaluation process should start with the creator(artist).He/She should know how to judge the work and comment on it.Then issues of technique.An artwork shouldn't be rejected on the basis of "unfamiliar" style.The structure and support of the work is also important,in the sense that how will the art lover hang or view it in the house or office with regard to durability and permanence.
But all these aspects point to and depend with the art lover and how much he/she likes the piece.
You can't force someone to like something creative and you can't force someone to create what he doesn't like.
As for the pricing,it depends with the artist.Since he/she is the real owner of the work.It pains me when dealers sort of "hijack" your work.
each work of art should be evaluated by the viewer. if the viewer feels something upon seeing, hearing, reading then the mission has been accomplished. inspiration has been transferred.
Any way it can.
Observe the art from a distance, observe the art up close and study the artist creating the work.
