Klimt Experts can provide certificates of authenticity as well as appraisals for numerous purposes including insurance, estate planning, sales, taxes and personal reference.

Klimt Experts, however, employs a team of researchers fluent in German that have access to the top research institutions in Europe and the United States, including renowned German and Austrian art museums, the Neue Galerie in New York City. In addition to conducting extensive research at international libraries and museums, Klimt Experts employs a team of researchers trained and experienced in the use of:
