I have an artwork with an unknown author. Should I contact Art Recognition nevertheless?

Definitely. Please also provide additional information such as the style, period, and a short list containing the most probable candidates.

Is Art Recognition specialized on a particular artist or group of artists?

No. The Art Recognition AI System can handle any artist, provided there are enough original artworks by that artist to train on.

Can The Art Recognition AI System distinguish between different styles of an artist?

Certainly. Our AI produces accurate results even for the artists which significantly changed their style across their careers, such as for example Cézanne. To be able to capture the different styles, we make sure to include a sufficient number of images from each period. Tests showed that results get more precise the more information we feed into the system.

I believe my artwork belongs to a period which comprises less artworks than other periods by the assumed artist. Can the AI System handle this?

Indeed, the Art Recognition AI System can deal with this situation. The unique brushstroke of an artist spans across all styles, also on periods which contain less works. Therefore, if your artwork is an original piece by the assumed artist, the brushstroke will be recognized. Please get in touch and we will be happy to check whether our database contains sufficient images from that particular period.

How large is the Art Recognition database?

Art Recognition has access to more than one million high resolution images.

What is the typical size of a dataset used for training?

Normally a dataset of around 200 images is enough to produce accurate results. For the more complex artists, this number should be higher in order to better capture the variations in style. We also augment the dataset by splitting the images into smaller patches, and zooming into them in order to capture the finer details.

Is the training data trustworthy? Where does Art Recognition get the data from?

We use images documented in Catalogue Raisonnés and embed the opinion of art experts whenever possible, in order to assemble training dataset of high quality.

What factors influence the price of an AI authenticity evaluation?

The price depends on the one hand on how much experience we already have with the analysis of a particular artist, but also on how difficult it is to get enough images, or whether there is disagreement among experts as to which paintings are to be regarded as authentic. Ultimately, it is also decisive how often an artist has changed his style, whether there have been a lot of restorations or whether an artist had his apprentices finish an artwork.

Do you offer deals and reductions?

Definitely! Write us on office@art-recognition.com in order to receive a package tailored to your specific request.

How long does it take to receive a response?

Normally we deliver the Art Recognition Certificate within 7 days. If we need longer, we inform you right away.

I have taken a photo of my artwork with my iPhone. Is the quality sufficient for the analysis?

Absolutely. Please make sure that the photo is upfront and with no shadows coming from lamps or other objects.
