Word or term in question:

se livrait à des taxations


Pour assurer l’apparence d’honnêteté commerciale, à laquelle le Reichsmarschall tenait essentiellement, l’expert français, commis à cet usage, se livrait à des taxations dont l’incohérence n’était égalée que par leur flagornerie envers l’occupant. Les Deux Tahitiennes de Gauguin3 qui figurèrent à maintes expositions parisiennes furent évaluées 30 000 francs4. Une occasion à faire rêver tous les collectionneurs.

came up with valuations

My comment:

ie he vastly undervalued the artworks in order to suck up to the Germans (who could thus purchase them more easily)
