Artwork validating artist

Keep in mind that if a work of art supposedly comes with a certificate of authenticity, not only should you be able to inspect it in its entirety ahead of time and read and review and corroborate that it's actually valid, but it should also accompany the art when you receive it.

Your particular situation does not sound good because the seller says the art has certificates of authenticity, but has not yet shown or sent them.To begin with, no laws govern who is or is not qualified to write certificates of authenticity except in rare instances.Nor is there any standard with respect to what types of statements, information or documentation a COA must include.And you need to see it BEFORE you buy the art, not after-- no matter what a seller promises.Unless a certificate of authenticity originates from and is signed by either the artist who created the art, the publisher of the art (in the case of limited editions), a confirmed established dealer or agent of the artist (not a casual third party or reseller), or an acknowledged expert on the artist, that certificate is pretty much meaningless.
