The Guirado Estate

"Cataloguing and certifying artworks is an integral part of preserving Juan Antonio Guirado’s legacy and the authentication system provided by Tagsmart is really simple to use and very informative. The Guirado Estate highly recommends Tagsmart to artists, galleries, estates, and collectors interested in safeguarding and preserving their collections. It will undoubtedly be the future of authenticating, verifying and protecting artworks." – Wanda von Breisky, Collection Director & Head Curator of the Guirado Estate


The Guirado Estate was created by Catalina Guirado, the artist’s only daughter, in 2013 to ensure the continued existence and preservation of her father’s legacy. The Estate’s primary aim is to advance and establish the heritage of this critically acclaimed artist. It also runs an international loan programme, and is supported by a research and documentation centre.

Guirado’s work is currently on show in the Environmentalism exhibition at the Room Mate Óscar Hotel, Madrid, until March 20. The paintings on display are linked to their respective Digital Certificate on the Tagsmart Certify platform through QR codes provided on the catalogue and subtitles, all part of the Tagsmart service.

Founding Artists

At Tagsmart, we want to protect great works of art from forgery, misrepresentation and fraud. We also care deeply that our solution should be for the art world and developed by the art world. Thanks to the knowledge and experience of these leading UK and international artists and institutions, we've been able to do just that. Our deepest thanks to our Founding Artists, who've given us invaluable assistance and feedback throughout the development of the Tagsmart Certify solution.

"A straightforward means of protecting my intellectual property; with the swift application of a tag I can digitally certify my works, and disown forgeries wherever they appear. It has allowed me to build stronger relationships with collectors, who now know that they can purchase my works with the absolute certainty that it has come directly from my studio."
