Authenticity and Artist's Proof
Will the artwork include the artist's signature?
Most artists will leave their signature somewhere on the artwork, often on the back or in a bottom corner. You can see if and where the artwork was signed on the artwork’s page on the website. In addition, you can make a request for a certificate of authenticity and we can ensure this is sent to you directly from the artist.
An Artist's Proof is outside the main edition prints.
The tradition of the artists proof comes from when all editions were hand-pulled from a lithograph press and were originally intended for the artist to check that the printing process had been successful. Nowadays they're a special subset of the regular edition that are seen to be closer to the artist’s hand as they are usually the first works to be printed.
