EXPERT  IN  THE  FINE  ART OF AUTHENTICATION

 

HOME

 

 

Why is the Authentication of Fine Art necessary?

   

 

  • Art authentication identifies any physical contravention of international law and denies the process of art fraud and forgery.
    It impedes the success of criminality or possible fraudulent activity in this criminal sphere.

 

  • Art authentication is a critical and necessary measure in maintaining the integrity of art history and upholding the legal, droit moral rights of its most respected artists in history.

 

  • Art authentication investigations are vital in the prosecution and detection of forgery and fraud, enabling us to sustain the ethic of honesty in society.

 

  • Art authentication therefore upholds both the social and financial value of fine art, thus preserving the quality of aesthetics and human value.

 


 

Who can and who cannot officially authenticate a work of art by an old or modern master?

 

 Those who are internationally and unanimously recognized and upheld as 'the ultimate expert authority' on a given artist.

Those experts who are fully entitled, qualified as being able to do so, usually fall into any one of the following categories:


  • The artists legal copyright holders, or those that by law the copyright control has devolved to. ie. An artists spouse or family, siblings or representative, such as an artists agent, noted gallery, or other individual expert.

  • An individual who is an internationally acclaimed expert, with a proven and well established, intimate knowledge of an artists works and techniques. Someone who has known the artist personally, or written extensively on the artist, formally represented that artist, curated exhibitions of the artists work, or another internationally respected and accepted expert of maximum renown.

  • A panel of appointed experts, collectively acting as an decision making jury.
    Usually  made up of a number of individual experts, each possessing unique skills and knowledge relating to that specific artists work and life. ie: Administrations, Committees, Panels, Trustees or Commissions, but also other academic institutes, or museums dedicated to that artists work.

  • The current compilers, authors and collators of the artists definitive Catalogue Raisonné.
    The comprehensive, annotated index of all the known legitimate works of an artist, working in a particular medium or all media.

 


 

  In the final analysis, it is to only those with the recognized right to do so, who can categorically support, approve, underwrite and authenticate a work of art. All and any other individuals who issue, or sell Certificates of Authenticity, are only expressing a personal opinion. An opinion which they are fully entitled to offer, as is their right, but it may be one that does not have the full credibility, qualification, or acceptance of the international community to be viewed as safe or reliable.

An Artists legal rights
 

 By law, the rights, including the copyright and the intellectual rights, 'Droit Moral' and “Droit de suite” of all European born or domicile artists, current or deceased, including all old and modern masters, are protected by European law and legal statutes and country of origin laws.

 Brought about by the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works in 1928, these are the protocols also recognized under US law since they signed the convention in 1989 under Title 17 of the U.S. Code.

Other nations outside Europe have since followed suit and are now signatories to and recognize it.

These regulations are internationally upheld and fully accepted as standards of ethic.
