Art Identification Standard

Charles Belle is one of the members of the AIS consortium.

In the art world, artists, collectors and institutions know how important it is to trust the authenticity, provenance, title, and condition of an artwork when tracking an artwork in the market or adding an asset to their collection. 

The Art Identification Standard (AIS) was formed to define a framework of industry-wide standards for the identification of art, which is expected to fundamentally enhance the way artworks are managed.

AIS’ aim is to promote the understanding and functionalities of cutting-edge technology applied to the tracing, identification and protection of art.

These industry-wide protocols would also help digital integration and collaboration across companies and non-profit initiatives in the sector.
