A certificate of authenticity is a document necessary for the attribution of a work of painting, sculpture, photography to an artist. It must include the title of the work, the date of its creation, the name of the artist and various elements specific to the artistic discipline (support, dimensions, number of copies made, materials, photo of the work, etc.).
As the profession of art expert is not regulated, all artists and professionals can write a certificate of authenticity themselves. Artcertificate considers that the author of the work is the most competent person to establish a certificate of authenticity.
When selling one of your works, you must provide a certificate of authenticity to the buyer (even if he does not claim it) accompanied by the duly completed sales invoice.
Artcertificate allows you to create certificates of authenticity (COA) attesting permanently and irrefutably the authenticity of your artworks, in a few clicks and from any computer, tablet and mobile phone connected.
1. Establish the identity of the work
2. Guarantee the authenticity of the work
3. Secure financial value
4. Valuing the work and the artist
5. Gain credibility
Without a certificate of authenticity, it is impossible to evaluate the work according to its provenance or to relate it to an artist. Its only value depends on its size, technique, materials used and the subject represented.
Have you thought about the traceability of the artwork, to integrate a Qrcode, to stick seals and to protect against counterfeiting?
When we publish our own certificates of authenticity, we do not always think about the traceability of the work and the security of documents. In the artistic field, these constraints have emerged as a fundamental necessity.
1) Creation of a unique Qrcode of traceability.
2) Creation of a web identity page of the work.
3) Creation of the seals to stick on the work and the certificate.
4) Securing the work and the paper supports.
Today, thanks to Artcertificate you can register all your certificates of authenticity, even those that you make yourself. You will be provided with a unique number and a Qrcode which are the basis of a traceability process.
ARTcertificate will publish in June 2019 the second issue of a series of art books entitled 'International Contemporary Artists' aimed at connecting artists and the world of art.
Registration is free without obligation to purchase.
