Artists using a catalogue
The legacy and works by Picasso, Monet, Warhol and other Masters would have been worthless today if they were not archived in their respective catalogues, in the past these were recorded by art dealers or in the case of Picasso who created over forty thousand works he had the luck to have his friend Christian Zervos volunteer to archive at least his paintings and drawings up until he passed away his succession continued this task and maintain records of almost every work, the others’ catalogues are maintained by their respective successors and foundations in old fashioned book format, today this is done digitally online giving the artist full control of their inventory and archive to access and manage from anywhere.
Provenance is also key in assessing a painting’s history and who owns it over the years as well as the picture’s exhibition history and literature written about it.
That is what normally a Catalogue Raisonné is used for, it is the sole reference to authenticate the artwork, it’s the Bible the history of art depends on. Thousands of unlisted masterpieces attributed to Masters cannot fetch any commercial value even with all the alternative proofs owners can come up with, so long as they’re not in the Bible their value is that of an antique picture you pick up in a flea market or if new an unknown artist you pick up in the village art fair.
Archiving and managing your inventory of creations originals and editions is paramount for every professional artist to secure not only their value, also the artist’s legacy.
Thanks to present digital and online technologies the task of archiving is far easier and accessible to anyone you wish to share it with from anywhere.
Every piece of art that gets uploaded into your catalogue is assigned a globally unique ID number so that all of the information surrounding a single work of art can be tracked over time. With this we are working with partners around the world to create a new industry standard similar to the ISBN for books that is controlled by artists for the long-term provenance tracking of art.
As a cloud-based platform, we provide professional artists with all of the tools needed to catalogue, organize, track, and share provenance based information in one place as well as a webpage on our platform to share publicly what you wish to exhibit on our gallery site and an option to have your own website syncing all together uploading your content one time.
The artpreneur.me platform provides a foundation for the adoption of new technology and enables artists and creators to participate in how their work is managed and used allowing artists to easily track their work both digitally and physically.
