Paper Abstract

Art appraisers have a unique spectator's overview of the fine arts marketplace. Not being involved in buying by auctions, galleries, dealers, and even barter. We hear the stories and claims and see the documents of authenticity from almost every source imaginable. The main conclusion is that there is no standard of expertise and authenticity, and providing one may be very difficult indeed.
