Checking Originality: Identification with Artificial Intelligence Test
In the search for a match, Image Search uses AI to look through databases of images and attempt to find ones that are similar. It can do this by using various algorithms like pattern recognition or machine learning. Some results may show as “matches” if there is actually something in common between two photos, but others will remain unknown since they rely more on chance than anything else. To run this test, I used a front picture to try to find similar images uploaded on the internet.
The results of the automatic recognition are not conclusive. If a match is found, it will be shown below:
What specific information can we obtain from this test?
The algorithm found an exact match. This result is associated with prints, either regular or limited edition prints, that were hand signed by the original artist of this piece-of art. It’s important to determine what type you have, so I need to go through the research and inspection process.

Title: THE YOUNG ARTIST
When trying to determine the age of an artwork, one of the first things to look at is the frame. The style of the frame, as well as the type of artwork and color palette, can give clues as to when it was created. For example, a piece from the Baroque period might have a gilded frame with a complicated design, while a piece from the Renaissance might have a simple wood frame. One way to date a painting is by looking at the frame construction. A frame made with modern metallic parts like flat-head nails, staples, or Phillips-head screws is likely from the 20th century. Older frames will have parts made of irregularly cut wood and metal that has been forged by hand. In some cases, you can see the absence of metallic parts. This is just one example of how the frame is put together and can be used to date a painting.
Based on the color palette and frame construction, I concluded that the painting was created in the mid- to late-20th century.
Condition of the artwork
This painting is in excellent condition, with no visible signs of wear or damage. The colors are still vibrant, and the paint has aged gracefully over time. No apparent repairs have been made to the work, giving it a unique patina that contributes to its overall charm.
Artist’s name, biographical information, artwork’s provenance (history of ownership) and exhibition history.
I study and research the signature of artwork to see if it matches any known signatures. The signature is partially covered by the frame, so I am unable to see it. In any case, it looks a facsimile signature. In principle, without a COA, I will appraise this piece as a reproduction painting, since the original one was bought recently by a museum.
