Fine Art Shippers is first and foremost known for providing premium quality fine art shipping services at reasonable prices. However, we also offer a scope of other services, including expert art advisory and consultation. We can help our clients find out the artwork value, investigate the authenticity, and we can certainly help buy or sell any piece of art. For example, lately, we have received several requests to help sell paintings by the prominent Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani. Since Amedeo Modigliani is one of the most expensive artists in the world, whose works are sold for millions of dollars, it was important to contact a trusted expert to determine the real artwork value, and this expert was Marc Restellini.
Marc Restellini (b. 1964) is a reputable art historian and one of the greatest experts on Amedeo Modigliani in the world. Having been working on Modigliani since the late 1980s, Restellini has organized many important exhibitions dedicated to the famous Italian artist, both in Europe and Japan. For today, Marc Restellini is a freelance expert who is invited for his expertise on Amedeo Modigliani at the international level. Besides, he supervises the preparation of the new Catalogue raisonné of Modigliani’s works, which is based on more than 600 scientific analyses and innovative techniques. This amazing person is also the founder of the Institut Restellini, an independent institute implementing technological advances to support the expertise of the paintings, and not only the works of Modigliani.
It is also worth noting that if you want to determine Amedeo Modigliani’s artwork value and authenticity, you should first ensure that it is in the Ceroni catalog, which is considered a Modigliani bible in the art market. If the painting is not in the Ceroni catalog, selling it will be extremely hard, if not impossible.
