Each artwork on Berista comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.
What is a Certificate of Authenticity and why is it important?
Certificate of Authenticity (COA) document determines an artwork's origin, with the certificate declaring that the relevant artwork was created by the artist, showing that it is authentic.
The COA guarantees the credibility of your purchase. It is an essential document for buyers who would like to be sure that it is not a replica or a fake one.
The art market values an original artwork much higher than a replica copy. Although the replicas might seem identical to the original, since it was not the same artist who painted it, even though it may have the same aesthetic impact, it does not have the same market value.

- Title of the artwork
