Art Identification and authentication

Wunderly specializes in determining whether or not your artwork is by a particular artist.

The methods of determining authenticity vary for each work of art, thus the experts we employ at Wunderly have a diverse range of specialties. Key backgrounds are: language, history, art history, specific artist history, art connoisseurship, forensics (handwriting analysis, fingerprint comparison, linguistics, etc.), and scientific (dna analysis, x-ray, IR photography, thermoluminescence, pigment analysis, etc.).

 

Appraisal

Once we have resolved the question of the authenticity of their art, many of our clients wish to know the value of it. Wunderly 's appraisers can determine the monetary value of your art, both informally (estimate of value) and formally (3 illustrated and bound reports with comparables). All of our appraisers are USPAP-certified.

We work with art owners, institutions and collectors to complete successful and discreet art sales around the world. We strive to make selling art easy and profitable.
