This file is then submitted to the
appropriate sole recognized authenticator expert for review of the art authentication research. Sometimes
a review fee is required by the expert committee. If a fee is required, this fee
is approved by Client before submission.
We only propose a fee for art authentication research after review of your
artwork and only if it is valuable to make an investigation for an art authentication. We are representatives and researchers for our clients in
this process but we can not warrant the authentication.
We don't accept every research for art authentication, it depends on the available elements we have to work with.
The provenance has to be clearly
established, we will never submit a file with a doubtful origin. If the
artwork is manifestly a copy of an original work, if the artwork
was submitted several times before unless new elements justify a new art
authentication research file, or if the artwork is too damaged and has lost his
initial value, in these cases we will not accept a research work of art authentication. The file and the price for the research has to be justified in compare with
the value of the artwork.
In comparison with an art appraisal, an art authentication is much more
complete. An art appraisal contains only an evaluation of the
page to help resolve questions you may have, denied authentication etc read more
