About Art Recognition

The Art Recognition algorithm has been developed with a strong vision: to bring state-of-the-art artificial intelligence methods into the art sector. Art Recognition was selected as one of the three most innovative Swiss Startups in 2017.


Our tool is able to evaluate the authenticity of an artwork by analyzing its photographic reproduction. The system is based on cutting-edge AI technologies. It is fast, reliable, non-invasive, and unbiased. It can be applied to many artworks at a time. By offering this program to the art world, we want to contribute to the integrity and transparency of the art market.


Fast and unbiased analysis of whether an artwork is genuine or not based on the latest methods of artificial intelligence. Whether as an aid to art experts or as the first quick check for collectors, art dealers, auction houses, museums or insurance companies – it does not require sending the original to distant countries, and the answer is available in minutes instead of weeks.

How it works

The algorithm has learned the characteristic features of the artist from a set of photographic reproductions of original paintings by that artist. Based on a photo of a painting in question, the tool checks whether the learned characteristics match those of the new artwork. We provide the results in the form of a report which summarizes the most important steps of the analysis.

What is behind the Art Recognition method?

The methodology behind the Art Recognition Engine relies upon training artificial neuronal networks in a deep learning setup. We combine statistical methods with explicit feature engineering techniques, by integrating a large number of learning units Read more…
