Jackson
Pollock

The closure of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation authentication committee in 1996, and the passing of Eugene Thaw and Francis O'Connor, authors of the Jackson Pollock Catalogue Raisonné, left a void in authenticating Jackson Pollock's art. We intend to fill that niche by offering a two-tier approach. Richard Polsky Art Authentication will initially examine the artist's paintings on paper and canvas to determine the possibility of a work being genuine. Based on our analysis of the imagery and provenance, if we believe there's a high probability that the work's authentic, we will then refer the owner to Jennifer Mass, Ph.D. of Scientific Analysis of Fine Art, LLC for independent scientific examination and confirmation.

Please note that these two services are available exclusive of one another. You're welcome to hire us on an individual basis.

Through a combination of connoisseurship and forensics, we intend to provide clients with a thorough vetting service, that will hopefully go a long way toward solving one of the art market's most vexing authentication problems. While Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Keith Haring are the most faked Contemporary artists — Jackson Pollock remains the most forged Post-War artist.
