The authenticity'>evaluation of the authenticity'>price of an object of art (or collection) depends above all on its degree of authenticity. To determine whether a good is genuine or not, the buyer may refer to certain documents.

The particulars appearing in the certificate of authenticity and the documents of authenticity are regulated by the regulations. The Marcus Decree of 3 March 1981 imposes standards for the authentication of an object of art or an antique piece of furniture. These rules are primarily intended to prevent fraud.

The decree thus provides that the seller of works of art or collector's objects shall, when the buyer so requests, 'issue to him an invoice, a receipt, a bill of authenticity'>sale or an extract from the report of the authenticity'>sale Public specification of the nature, composition, origin and seniority of the thing sold '. In case of subsequent litigation concerning the authenticity of the property, the particulars associated with its description will be decisive.

The mention of a workshop must be followed by a period indication in the case of a family workshop that has retained the same name over several generations.

School of the artist
The use of the terms 'school of' followed by an artist's name entails the guarantee that the author of the work has been the pupil of the cited master, has notably undergone his influence or benefited from his technique. These terms can only apply to a work performed during the artist's lifetime or in less than fifty years after his death.
