Our consulting department, Gene Oliver Art Services is located in San Francisco. We have clients in both Europe and Nothern America; most of our research can be handled remotely but we also consult "in situ."
We are familiar with European and American artists from the 19th and 20th centuries, with a particular emphasis on Post-Impressionism, Fauvism, Pop Art and Abstract Expressionism artists.
We offer authentication services so we can provide an opinion letter and in some cases a certificate of authenticity. Our partner appraisers can also determine the fair market price and replacement value of the artwork under consideration.
Our first consultation is always free; please send us by email a photo and description of the artwork. We will give you an opinion and if we believe your artwork is genuine and valuable, we will send for your review a letter of engagement and a fees schedule.
Picture files and queries can be sent to email@example.com
We do not accept authentication and appraisal requests by phone.
