Modigliani Art Authentication
Authentication is always a difficult task. Unless you can put the brush in the artist’s hand, it is far from perfect. We will assist you in retaining the best testing facilities available. They will use modern technology to examine the brush strokes, canvas, layering, paint, coloring and style to determine the authenticity of your painting. Please call or e-mail us for further information.
Modigliani Artwork Provenance Verification
Provenance is defined generally as the process of tracking the finished work from the day it left Amedeo’s hands to market. This is one of the most important steps to establishing a market for your painting. We will work to research the history of ownership in order to document the life of the painting. Because Modigliani’s paintings were centered in Paris, it is crucial that the whereabouts of the painting can be established especially during the war-torn years of World War II. Provenance also plays an important role in authentication. Please call or e-mail us for further information.

Bringing your painting to market is the pinnacle of our efforts. This is what we have been working for. All questions have been answered and the painting is ready to make its mark on the art world. Of course, a lot of hard work and strategizing goes into this. But, it is well worth it. Our goal is to maximize the sale price while minimizing the costs associated with the sale. Your investment into authentication and provenance will pay off! Whether the painting is sold at auction or by a private sale will depend on a number of factors. Please call or e-mail us for further information.
Modigliani Fakes and Forgeries
There are few artists who are more copied than Modigliani. The con-artists who have faked Modiglianis and brought them to market are legendary. Because of this, fakes and forgeries abound. We are dedicated to assisting you in rising to the top so that those issues are not at all relevant to your painting. The work that goes into bringing your painting to market will help you avoid the pitfalls of having your painting labeled a fake or forgery. Authentication, testing, provenance and public acceptance are the keys to moving above these issues. There are catalogue and art exhibition opportunities that can be taken advantage of by the astute owner. Please call or e-mail us for more information.
