The Science of Authentication


Our chief scientist, Maurizio Seracini, is considered to be the father of Scientific Art Authentication. With his background as a biomedical engineer, Seracini pioneered the use of multi-spectral diagnostic imaging, analytical diagnostics and other advanced technologies to study art. His proven scientific methodology, The Authenticum, allows us to:


  • Provide a complete and thorough report on the work’s state of conservation and decay
  • Understand and identify the techniques and materials used to create the work of art
  • Determine the age of the work
  • Scientifically determine a work’s authenticity
