The Associazione Paolo Scheggi is concerned with the authentication and archiving of all the artist's work.

The next meeting of the Science Commission has been set for October 3, 2023.

The Associazione reserves the right to change the abovementioned dates at any time, only later communicating the new date for the meeting of the technical committee.

How to ask for an examination of the works

In order to know if the work belonging to you is authentic, and therefore to ask for an examination by the Associazione Paolo Scheggi's technical committee, it is necessary to send an email to digital photographs of the work: front, back, details of the signature, writing, labels (when present), and to indicate the provenance, bibliography, and its appearance in publications or exhibition catalogues. There will then be an answer from the Associazione Paolo Scheggi which will ask you to send for each work of whatever format or type, even if supplied with preceding evaluations of authentications, the following documentation:

  •  3 colour photographs of the front (18 x 24 cm., professional);
  • 2 colour photograph of the back (18 x 24 cm., professional);
  • 2 colour digital files of the front and of the back (20 x 20 cm., professional) with 300 dpi resolution and an indication of the colour scale;
  • information about the work: title, year, technique, dimensions (height by width by depth);
  • exhibitions and publications involving the work, eventual changes in ownership, and any other information useful for reconstructing the provenance and history of the work;
  • photocopies of any previous authentications;
  • indications of the correct way of viewing and reproducing the work/s with the word "top" written on the back of one of the three photographs of the front and one on the back of the work/s by Paolo Scheggi;
  • indication of how the proprietor wishes to be acknowledged in the case of publication of the work: with full name (in this case, please specify) or with the indication "Private collection";
  • release note from the photographer and/or the photographic studio responsible for the photos of the works sent to the Associazione Paolo Scheggi, and containing the authorization for the use and publication of the Catalogue Raisonné and other eventual publications devoted to the artist Paolo Scheggi. The release note must also contain the exact wording of the name of the photographer and/or photographic studio. It is possible to download the following model here.
