The first thing you should do is check out a museum exhibit, like this one at the New York Public Library, and make sure that you aren’t dealing with a piece of art that has been staged or doctored.
Then, you can make an educated decision about whether it is real.
If it isn’t, you need to get an official statement from the museum, or you might have to leave and find a new venue.
For the art world, the best way to determine if an exhibition is fake is to examine its images.
This can be done by comparing the original photos and videos of a work to a digital copy.
If the image quality is good, and if it looks like it’s authentic, then it’s a good bet that it’s not.
“Art exhibitions are one of the easiest ways to spot art fraud,” says Daniel Glynn, a former assistant U.S. attorney and current law professor at Yale Law School.
“It’s almost like if someone has taken a snapshot and then painted over it.
You know the artist’s name and the date, and the location, and then it just looks like the original.”
But if the photos and video are not consistent, then the authenticity of the art might be questioned.
“A museum exhibit can be an easy and inexpensive way to find fake art,” Glynn says.
But it’s also the easiest way to get caught.
“An authentic art work can be quite expensive,” he says.
If you’re in a hurry, though, there are more and better ways to determine authenticity.
For one, take a closer look at the artwork.
If its quality is better than what you would get at a typical museum, then you can tell that the work is fake.
And if its quality isn’t good, then there might be more to the story.
“If you see a picture that looks like an artist’s hand or something that looks exactly like an original, it’s probably a fake,” Glynns says.
That means you can expect to pay more for an art work than if you saw a fake.
You can also be a bit skeptical about a work’s authenticity if you see something that seems off, like a digital image that is slightly off or distorted.
The best way, though?
Take a closer view of the artwork itself.
The closer you look, the more likely it is that the artwork is fake, according to Glynn.
“The closer you get to the image, the easier it is to tell,” he adds.
And that means you have a better chance of identifying artworks that aren’t actually art, Glynn recommends.
