Artforum Culture Foundation (ACF) collects detailed information and documents about art. A special service is dedicated to forensic analysis and evaluation of modern art. ACF is able to provide all players in the art market with objective and reliable scientific expertise on the subjects of authenticity, dating and the state of conservation of works of art and other cultural objects. ACF is supported by volunteers and contributors, who spend their knowledge and time to expand its possibilities. The foundation operates its independent services in co-operation with ArtExpert and other specialists. The experts are in position to check masterpieces of modern and contemporary art. Especially Greek art of the 19th and 20th century is within our focus. For the authentication of works a.o. by Heinz-Günter Mebusch, Vera Isler-Leiner, John Moore, Michael Jansen, Heinz Zolper ACF has the main authority.
Inquiries of private and public collectors are welcome. After a process of identification and verification the results can be certified on request.
