Before you begin a full scale Art  Authentication Project:



Art authentication is not about guesswork and certainly not about wishful opinion.

It is a world where there is little room for conjecture and is all about reality.



 Most normal human beings are naturally guided here to us on the internet by a dream.

And why not?

It's a dream that what they have  may just be something special after all. They are beguiled by that magical possibility but don't know if there is any reality in it.

It's a possibility that what they believe to be true, what they have been told is true or what they want to believe is true, is actually true! But do remember, with authentication, that dream has to be absolutely proven. Just like a case placed before a court of law.

 In court, any case must be proven and adjudged convincingly, without a shadow of any doubt and proven in many different ways; academically, forensically and in actuality. All of this has to be achievable before the work can be pronounced absolutely authentic.


 Before you get into the procedures minefield which can evolve with art authentication, a field which may be both financially and emotionally taxing, it is more than wise to be realistic about the issue and have an independent 'preliminary assessment' conducted first.

 A pre authentication assessment, is a professional assessment which is based upon pure reality. It balances the viability of your work of art and its background and assesses the possibility based on our past experience, that the case may be realistically followed through and eventually possibly be proven.

The advice you get will be invaluable and based upon the simple question; Is there any reality in the notion that possibly the work of art could be right? Can we diminish the risks involved at all and do we have any serious chance achieving our objective?

If a project is literally not achievable and not provable, surely it would be sensible to know that up front from the start!


 Such an unbias assessment then allows the client to make a wiser, more considered decision and apply a greater degree of sensibility in taking the leap into a staged, full blown art authentication investigation.


It makes a great deal of sense.
