Authentication Guarantee

Khaas Art Gallery lists and sells in its ‘Browse and Buy’ online catalogue art that it owns (Khaas Art Gallery’s own collection) as well as art on consignment, either from an artist itself, or from a reputable private collector or a reputable and established affiliated art gallery.

Khaas Art Gallery provides an assurance to artwork purchasers that each piece of art we offer for sale from our own collection through online purchase is a genuine work of the artist listed. We also provide an assurance on behalf of the seller that each piece of art which we offer for sale that does not belong to us but is either on consignment from an artist, or put up for sale on the gallery’s ‘Browse and Buy’ online catalogue, is a genuine work of the artist listed.

Authenticity in relation to artwork shall mean compliance of the artwork with the description provided on the web site, particularly with reference to the name of the artist, title (if any) of the artwork itself, date, the school of art (if mentioned), dimensions, medium, et cetera.

All art sold at Khaas Art Gallery is sourced either directly from the artist, from reputable art galleries affiliated with us, or from reputable individual art collectors who are able to prove provenance to our satisfaction. The artwork is further screened and authenticated by affiliated experts and directly by the artist where possible. Based on our diligent scrutiny of each artwork, we provide an authenticity certificate with every sale.

However, in the unlikely event that any item which you purchase from Khaas Art Gallery’s own collection is, within six months from the sale, proven to our reasonable satisfaction to be inauthentic or its description as set out on the site, or otherwise, is inaccurate or erroneous, we will forthwith refund the full purchase price and shipping costs paid by you, once you return the artwork purchased to us. These cases will be handled on a case-by-case basis and will require examinable proof clearly showing that the item is inauthentic as provided by a known and established authority that is recognized by us.

This guarantee shall remain in full force and effect for a period of one year from the date of purchase of the original artwork from Khaas Art Gallery, so long as the following conditions have been satisfied:

  1. Only the actual buyer (as registered with Khaas Art Gallery, or as evidenced by payment receipts) has made the claim. The benefit of the claim is not assignable to any subsequent owners or others who may acquire or have an interest in the original artwork.
  2. The item is returned in the same condition that it was delivered, which will be determined by Khaas Art Gallery.
  3. The item was indisputably purchased from Khaas Art Gallery.
  4. At the time of the sale, there were techniques available, and it was not unreasonable or impractical for Khaas Art Gallery to employ such techniques, which could have determined that the artwork was not authentic.
