About Hephaestus Analytical

Hephaestus stands as the singular global entity capable of authenticating paintings and providing insurance against forgery, setting the highest evidentiary standard in art authentication. Their unique collaboration with a major insurer allows them to offer an exclusive art authenticity insurance, transforming the landscape of art security and financial liquidity.

The authentication process at Hephaestus is meticulous and multifaceted. It begins with thorough provenance research to trace the artwork's ownership history through documentary evidence. Expert connoisseurship involves consultation with leading specialists, art dealers, and academics to ensure the artwork's market acceptance. Advanced chemical analysis is performed to verify the age, process, and materials consistent with the artwork’s attribution.

Hephaestus further employs cutting-edge technology, including proprietary machine learning algorithms known as Pictology, which analyse high-resolution images of the artwork to ensure authenticity. Moreover, all authenticated artworks are secured on a blockchain, providing an unalterable digital record that guarantees the authenticity certifications cannot be forged or tampered with.

This comprehensive approach not only secures the art but also enhances its financial utility, allowing collectors to obtain competitive, long-term loans based on the artwork’s verified authenticity, without the need for personal guarantees.
