Certificates of authenticity
Each work is individually created and personally signed by the artist and accompanied by an Official Certificate of Authenticity. A Certificate of Authenticity provides a guarantee of genuiness. As a collector or investor in original artwork a Certificate of Authenticity for each aquisition is essential and should be kept in a safe place. Certifiicates of Authenticity are issued to ensure the artwork acquired is exactly what was paid for. It is the document that proves the work of art was done by the artist.
If purchasing a mixed media, a sculpture or part of a limited edition, a Certificate of Authenticity also insures that the work of art is authorized by the artist, and was not done ourside of the edition. Works that are not inside the edition set by the artist are unauthorized and are therefore illegal.
If purchasing a work from the secondary market (from another collector) you will receive the certificate from where ever the art was originally purchased. If acquiring artwork directly from the artist you will receive a Certificate of Authenticity directly from the artist. Certificates of Authenticity generally arrive around the time of delivery.
An independent appraisal report from a certified art appraiser accompanies each piece of artwork. Appraisal reports are your evidence of value in the event of a loss and claim. These generally focus on estimating replacement value, which is your cost to replace a stolen damaged or destroyed item with one of "like kind and quality." The reports bear witness that you were in possession of the artwork and provide an accurate description of it.
Reports are prepared to recognized valuation standards, ensuring that your insurance company has everything it needs to schedule coverage of your property. Our reports are deemed complete, substantiated, and rooted within generally acceptable principles of valuation.
A 30 day warranty covers each transaction.
