The Foundation keeps up a non-public catalogue raisonné of Adolf Luther’s works; owners of works by him may apply to have them entered in the catalogue.
Entry in the catalogue raisonné requires an expertise, which first entails bringing the work in “person”. In this way questions about material constitution, authenticity and state of repair can be determined.
The following documents are necessary for an entry in the catalogue:
A digital depiction of the work
- from front and behind
- of the signature, date, and if present of the stamp
- details of provenance
After checks have been made and the expertise drawn up, the Foundation will send the owner a data sheet with the depiction of the work and its catalogue number.
The labour costs entailed by this procedure will be covered by us.
