Patrick Regan brought to this talk his experience as a gallerist, auction specialist, advisor and appraiser.  He discussed some of the more practical issues of authenticity to the advisor and appraiser and will use examples from Asian Art to illustrate some problems, tricks, and tips to begin the assessment of a work or a collection.  

We covered the following questions:

  • What is the practical meaning of “authenticity” to the advisor and appraiser?

  • The specialists, the scientists, or the market - Who decides what is right?

  • When is authenticity more important and when is it less important?

  • What are some general ways you should begin to assess a work or a collection?

  • What can you do when you just don’t know?
