The COA for Warhol prints came from the Board of the Warhol Foundation. The examination costs were all in all about $ 2000. It was issued for handsigned lithographs or handpaintings which have value of min. $ 40000. The Andy Warhol Art Authentication Board, Inc. was a private corporation that certified the authenticity of works by the artist, Andy Warhol, from 1995 to early 2012. On the day of October 19, 2011, in a statement by the Board of Directors of the Andy Warhol Foundation, it was announced that the Authentication Board was to be completely dissolved in early 2012 in order to maximize its charitable contributions to the arts. Our Gallery issues Certificates of Authenticity (COA) and of your Ownership. All certificates are registered. For security reasons the certificates are never sent together with the print.
Andy Warhol's signature went through changes during the course of his career. His 1950's prints were signed by his mother, Julia Warhola. His 1960's prints were often signed on the back beginning his first name with a round "A" , some used a stamped signature, some just his initials. So not all of the first 250 lithographs editions were hand signed. Examples: 60's 70's 80's In principle Andy Warhol was a lazy man. But it is true, he gave occasionally to his friends or gallery visitors autographs or made quick drafts. But these occasions were rare. You will find a lot of "hand signed" prints of Andy Warhol in different auctions but also in renowned galleries. To 99 % these offered mostly offset prints are just pages torn from different illustrations (books, journals) and signed with a black or gold feltpen by somebody but definitely not by Andy Warhol. Let us ask you a question: Who would sell a hand signed print with a value of min. $ 10000 for just $ 100? If Andy Warhol would have signed all these prints he would have had to live for another two centuries. The value of these fakes is simply zero.
