AI Engine for art authentication and forgery detection


Are you considering buying or selling and artwork?

Art Recognition offers an intelligent AI software for art authentication and forgery detection. The AI is trained to learn the characteristics of different artists and has access to more than 1m images.

You can upload a photo of your painting via a protected, completely secured web application. In 7 days we deliver an encrypted AI report and certificate describing the AI analysis as well as the program’s assessment whether the painting belongs to the assumed artist. You will receive the encrypted Report and Certificated confidential. 


- Fast: only a photograph of the artwork is required for the process; 

- Hassle-free: it doesn’t matter where your artwork is located, no need to transport and insure it.

- Unbiased: fully objective and data driven analysis;   

- Secure: AR reports and certificates come with an encryption recognised by the Swiss authorities.


The methodology behind the Art Recognition Engine relies upon training artificial neuronal networks in a deep learning setup. We combine statistical methods with explicit feature engineering techniques, by integrating a large number of learning units to increase the performance and accuracy.

The training process rests on the commonly accepted hypothesis that the brushstroke pattern constitute a unique finger print of the artist. The feature which needs to be learned is thus the brushstroke of a particular artist.

Once the learning process has been completed, the algorithm can recognize with very high precision the details of the brushstroke of that artist. When analysing a new artwork, the brushstroke is compared with the learned one: if the brushstrokes are identical within a very small margin, the artwork is labelled as original, otherwise it is a fake.
