FAR Tag – Registration and Application

  • You, an artist, collector, gallery or museum decide you want to make a permanent record of a work of art you have created or obtained or of a whole collection of art work
  • You become a member of Fine Art Registry
  • You purchase high tech FAR tags for your pieces
  • You apply the tags, photograph the pieces and register each one on the FAR web site so there is a permanent record in our database with all relevant information
  • The images of the piece will appear in your portfolio gallery on the FAR web site
  • When you sell a piece of your art, gift it or donate it to someone you carry out an electronic transfer of ownership on the FAR web site so that the sale is a matter of official record. An image of the piece is transferred to the new owner’s portfolio gallery for all to share
  • Collectors looking for art to buy for their collections can browse the FAR galleries or find work by specific artists and buy with the security of knowing that the provenance of the pieces is established and authentic
  • Artists or collectors can simply provide a link to their galleries when they want to show a prospective buyer what they have for sale
  • Insurance claims can be made and dealt with in the certainty that the piece of art actually existed and was owned by the person or entity making the claim
  • If a work of art is lost or stolen it can be instantly designated as such on the FAR web site, making it easier for it to be recovered
  • A collector, gallery or museum acquiring a piece of art can use the Fine Art Registry to help ensure that the piece is not stolen or forged
  • 50, 100 or 500 years from now, the provenance of a work of art can be verified on the FAR web site and its history traced.
