Inspection of artworks and reports to insurance companies
Our regular clients often turn to us before making important art purchases or ask us to inspect an artwork 'on site' so that we can prepare a professional objective opinion regarding the work’s authenticity and physical condition including evaluation of past events relating to the work. The fact that there are many forgeries in the art world increases the importance of these inspections. Our professional opinions are also in demand for insurance purposes and for appraisers who ask us to examine artworks injured by water, fire, burglary etc.
It is important to note that that our expertise relates to technological and not commercial aspects. In other words, our professional opinion relates to the authenticity, technique, status, and interventions in the past but not to the commercial value of the artwork.
