Authenticity of Artworks
The Bombay Art Society (BAS), a charitable art institution promoting artists and art displays and offers original artworks for sale (except limited edition prints) and provide assurance on behalf of exhibiting artists that every work of an art is an authentic work of the artist mentioned therein.
All art buyers who purchase artworks from bombayartsociety.org are to be provided ‘Authenticity Certificate’ signed by the respective artist or The Bombay Art Society, along with a tax paid invoice of The Bombay Art Society.
BAS provides a guarantee of taking back artwork from the buyer with a full refund if buyer proves to the satisfaction of BAS that the artwork purchased from bombayartsociety.org lacks authenticity and is counterfeit. In any such cases, BAS will annul the sale and make the artists/seller pay full refund to the buyer once buyer returns the artwork to BAS in original condition when it was purchased from BAS. BAS shall in turn hand over the aforesaid artwork to artist/seller. However, all such claims by the buyer are to be examined by art experts on the basis of proofs submitted by the buyer and the decision of The Bombay Art Society will be final and binding in respect of such claims if found unsubstantiated. The art expert’s charges if any are to be borne by the buyer. All such claims are to be submitted within one year by the original-registered buyer of BAS who purchased artwork and not the succeeding owner of the artwork.
