Forensic Studies in Art
Understanding how artists’ materials were made and used throughout the centuries is fundamental to answering questions related to dating, authorship, and in the confirmation or rejection of authenticity. We approach these issues with a lifetime of experience.
We are well known for our application of time-tested forensic techniques, and for our expertise in art conservation. Our research efforts, collaborations with scholars, experts, and technical specialists across many disciplines have resulted in acclaimed discoveries over the years. Some of these have been reviewed in the international media and presented in peer reviewed journals and lectures.
The roster of our clientele extends from museums to private collectors.
Please feel free to contact us with your projects and questions.
