AUTHENTICATION SERVICES

Our team is well versed in art historical research and properly connected with a vast network of museum professionals, scholars, and scientists to facilitate the proper authentication of a work of art. It is important to know that locating the appropriate authority for a particular artist or genre is imperative in art authentication. Many times finding these authorities is very time consuming and difficult without the proper connections. We have helped many clients find and work through the art world’s accepted channels to authenticate works of art.


Not sure if you're in need of a full appraisal?

If you are in the exploration stage with your art (for example, you inherited some art and aren't sure if the value warrants an insurance appraisal), we are happy to recommend our sister company, What's It Worth?. Users can submit images and details on their piece, and receive identification and a fair market valuation at a very reasonable cost.
