Authentication
of Works by
Pablo Picasso

The Picasso Experts team specializes in Picasso authentications as well as the reconstruction of provenance. Our experts have extensive experience and training in the investigation of Pablo Picasso works, a task that we have been performing since 2002.

The authentication process begins with a comparative analysis of the work, comparing it with other works by the author. For this reason, we request historical information about the painting, if you have it, along with any documentation that could help in the investigation. Picasso Experts has ample experience to deduce or interpret any data relevant to the investigation of provenance and authenticity.

We then complete a stylistic study called Morellian Analysis that combines several elements of knowledge About Picasso's work. This analysis follows the common patterns and standards in works that have already been identified as genuine Picassos. These provide sufficient evidence to determine if a work is genuine or not.

To inform you about the investigation of your piece once our work is completed, we will send a report demonstrating our analysis methods step by step, along with photos of your work and other works by Picasso and the results of the investigation.

The cost of an authentication depends on many factors: the time needed to complete it, the location of the archives with information about the artist, the probable transportation to obtain information about the work, the requirement of special photos or a special scientific procedure, and the investigation's level of difficulty. In any case, we have affordable fees, beginning with the simplest analysis that would allow us to reach a conclusion about the authenticity of a work.

In all cases, and prior to beginning any job, we will give you a personalized estimate. In some complicated projects, we request an advance if we are not certain of the time and work it will take to complete an authentication.

Fees are paid in advance. That is to say, the investigation begins as soon as the corresponding remittance is received. Of the thousands of drawings and paintings by Picasso, there are still many unidentified pieces. Contact us if you think you have a work by Picasso. Get in touch using our Contact page.
