This is NOT an authentication service.
The gallery will provide assistance in identifying works of R.C. Gorman. There is no guarentee of successfully identifying all works, however the gallery and our consultants have extensive records and experience and will likely be able to provide you with useful information.
We will provide you with information we have in our records such as a title, medium, year, and other information pertaining to your request. This can be helpful is distinguishing posters from lithographs or one-of-a-kind painting and drawings, beginning further research on value, or personal or professional record keeping.
This is not an authentication becuase this process is done using photographs and information you send and not with an in-person examination of the work. However, we will provide - when avaiable - inforamtion on hallmarks that can help you resonably authenicate the piece.
