Certificate of authenticity

Every artwork should have a certificate of authenticity.


A certificate of authenticity is essential to tell more about an artwork and to prove its authenticity. It adds and especially when the artwork is bought from a reseller.

Thanks to a valid certificate of authenticity the art collector can :

  • have specific information about the artwork (title, medium, date of production, dimensions, editions ...)
  • be reassured on the author and his signature.

It can be used not only to prove the authenticity of the artwork but also its ownership.
