Through connoisseurship and technical examination, the John Folinsbee Art Trust hopes to assist the public in the confirmation of correct attribution and provenance of the artist’s extensive oeuvre. Owners of works (paintings, drawings, watercolors, but not prints or other multiples) whose authorship may be in doubt may contact the Manager of the Catalogue Raisonné to learn of the formal process and procedures. The Trustees meet at least twice annually to make decisions concerning authentication.
