Welcome to Fine Art Investigations
Fine Art Investigations is dedicated to preserving the artistic and historic legacy embedded in 19th century American portraits. From expertise in George Caleb Bingham portraits, FAI developed skills that evolved into a comprehensive system to identify artists. With one good clue, FAI can answer the questions: When was it painted? Who was the artist? Who was the subject? How should it be cared for? What is the best way to sell it? Click these links to see examples of artist identification, subject identification and brokered sales, and these for how to get started and costs. A recent article details the work of FAI’s principal art sleuth.
