Welcome to Richard Polsky Art Authentication Expert Opinion.
We specialize in offering a “preliminary opinion,” on works by “Post-1945” artists, to determine the probability of whether they are genuine or not. Rather than an extensively-researched authentication report, our goal is to provide fast affordable guidance. This service is designed for individuals who wish to verify what they own, or decide whether to purchase an item or bid on it at auction. Our preliminary opinion service will also benefit auction houses considering whether to accept a work for consignment.
If you are interested in hiring us, please go to the menu and click “Submission” to view our three-step process. First, send us digital photos of your work of art and provide us with as much information as you can about its history. Next, sign and send the one-page disclaimer. Finally, please send a payment through Paypal; we charge $250 for a Preliminary Opinion. Within 24 hours, we will get back to you with our decision.
Please Note: We are not providing authentication; we are offering an informed opinion.
We also offer a full authentication service for the work of Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Keith Haring.
