Verification,
Cura​tion, 
Conser​vation

In addition to art authentication, Artentika offers several art-related technologies and solutions. Our One-2-One© solution detects the minutest discrepancy between two photos of any object taken at different times. The photos may be acquired with a smartphone via t​he Artentika App, which initiates an automated process of verification. Typical clients include Museums, Auction Houses, Corporate and Private Collectors, Art Insurers and Reinsurers, Art Logistics Companies and Law Firms. 
One-2-One provides proactive value generation by minimizing conservation and legal expenses. In select cases, it generates income through the on selling of detailed verification and curation reports. More >
