In Deed: Certificates of Authenticity in Art

Roma Publications
Artists' Books
19 × 27 × 1 cm

Susan Hapgood and Cornelia Lauf (editors)

Certificates of authenticity are a critical aspect of artworks today. They often embody the artwork itself, while referring to it, serving as its deed, legal statement, and fiscal invoice. Certificates by artists validate the authorship and originality of the work and they allow the work of art to be positioned in the marketplace as a branded product. Providing examples of artists certificates from the past fifty years, this book reveals how roles have shifted and developed, as well as how the materials and content of art have changed.
