Establishing and managing control over verifiably accurate data is of vital importance for artists, their family members and their heirs, artist’s studio managers, artist’s estate executives, artist-endowed foundation managers and board members, gallerists, and gallery/artist liaison managers, service providers for artists’ estates, art lawyers and tax advisors, and all those who have a stake in the art industry.

There are many occasions where trustworthy data are needed:

appraisals
art experts and the courts
art insurance
auction sales
authority to sell (title)
bankruptcy, creditors’ rights, and security interests in works of art
catalogues raisonnés
collateralization of art
