CERTIFICATES OF AUTHENTICITY

To initiate a request for an Opinion about Authenticity and Archiving of a work of art it is necessary to send the documentation and materials listed in the Regulations Section (downloadable from this page in pdf format) to the Mario Schifano Archive, exclusively by postal mail and in hard copy (i.e. on paper).

If the documentation and materials required are deemed not to be sufficient to formulate an opinion about authenticity, the Commission may request the direct analysis of the work. In this case, the Archive will make an appointment with the collector or applicant.

It is recommended to attach the receipt of payment and tax information for billing purposes to the materials listed in the Regulations Section. The Archive will start the evaluation of the documentation only if in possession of all the documents required.
