Gallery of the Month

Philip Mould & Company

Philip Mould & Co.

Philip Mould & Company are a leading specialist dealer in British art and Old Masters. Beyond their impressive collection, the gallery has also overseen the conservation and restoration of thousands of paintings over the last three decades, giving expert advice on an artwork’s true attribution.

Philip Mould & Company will now use Tagsmart – including their branded Tags and secure Certificates of Authenticity – to verify the authenticity of their 20th-century artworks and create an accredited ownership history over time. Gallery Director and Tagsmart Strategic Adviser Philip Mould OBE is also the co-presenter of one of the most watched arts programme on television, BBC's 'Fake or Fortune?'. 

"There is now an increasing need to inject security and confidence into the art market. Issues of fakery and duplication will always exist, but Tagsmart has innovated a means of provenance recording which I am delighted to both utilise and strategically support.” – Philip Mould OBE


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."
