Did you know that every work of art must be accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity? To put it simple, our work of art is a living entity and its certificate is its ID. A Certificate of Authenticity accompanies the work of art from its first owner to the last, whether it changes hands or not. The Certificate of Authenticity is provided by the gallery to the new owner and certifies or verifies a series of information forming the artwork’s special ID.
Our gallery, with respect to its customers, artists and history, provides Certificates of Authenticity for any item it provides, regardless its monetary value. It is your proof that the artwork you have in your hands is an authentic, fulfilling all requirements of purchase, sale or resale.
A Certificate of Authenticity is more than just a piece of paper. It is your proof that you are the legal owner of the artwork, giving you the right to use it as you please (lend, resell, exhibit, insure it – except reproduce it). All spiritual rights are reserved for the artist.
So next time you purchase an artwork, please keep its Certificate of Authenticity in a safe place. Certificates of Authenticity are only issued once.
