Anti-counterfeiting day - Galeries Bartoux

Anti-counterfeiting day

To mark World Anti-Counterfeiting Day, we would like to draw your attention to the risks involved in buying works of art online or from private individuals.

In 2023, 20 million items were seized, an unprecedented record and an increase of 77.61% on the previous year. These figures underline the persistence and scale of the counterfeiting phenomenon.

With the boom in online commerce, some of our artists are falling victim to copies. To ensure the authenticity of your acquisitions, we recommend that you use certified professionals and recognised galleries to purchase (or resell) works of art.

Together, let’s support artists by renouncing counterfeiting and reporting abuses! If you have any complaints about our artists, please write to us at:
