Authentication Advice

While AFAA does not authenticate works of art, we have assisted many clients to do so. It's important to note that only a recognized expert in the work of an artist, is authorized to issue certificates of authenticity. We have longstanding professional relationships with many experts and understand their process and requirements.

Providing the relevant data on your item before submission to the expert is often pivotal to a positive outcome. This frequently involves research in specialist collections, archives and databases on your behalf.

Our objective is to present the expert with a detailed fact sheet on your artwork that supports its presumed authenticity. If the expert requests to personally examine the work, we can also assist with logistics.

Hourly rates apply.
