What is a Limited Edition Certificate of Authenticity?

Numbered certificates of authenticity go hand in hand with limited edition prints. A Limited Edition Certificate is a promise to the buyer from the artist. The promise is one of exclusiveness.

In order to warranty that the “Limited Edition” is really a limited edition, the certificate contains information on the artist, the title of the work, the media used and the number and date of the edition.

This document certifies that the accompanying artwork is a genuine and authentic limited edition fine art print (the “Print”) produced directly from the artist’s original. The artist certifies that the Print is produced strictly in accordance with the Edition Particulars detailed on this certificate. Sole copyright of the original artwork and the Print are retained by the artist. The artist provides a limited licence to the owner of the Print for his or her own display and enjoyment. The owner of the Print may not copy or display it in any other format other than the Print without the express written permission of the artist. The owner of the Print may sell or gift the print to another party and the limited licence and restrictions shall apply to such party.
