The Certificate of Authenticity is a document provided with each painting, limited edition giclee, or print that certifies that the it is authentic from the artist. It also provides additional information about the painting or giclee/print, such as the specifics of the original (e.g., size, medium, and dimensions), as well as details about the reproduction, such as edition number, etc. Each Certificate is signed and embossed by the artist. Please retain your Certificate as an added store of value. If (heaven forbid) you ever want to sell your painting or giclee/print, it might be a handy document to have.
