DNA Testing of Paintings

DNA testing of paintings
  • It is possible for an artist to leave DNA behind in his creation, the most likely form being hair. Matching DNA from your painting to the artist makes a strong case for authenticity.
  • If hair is found in the paint, we can extract this sample non-destructively and test it to determine if it is a viable DNA sample.
  • If DNA from the artist is available, we will locate it and compare it to your sample.
  • We will issue a report detailing our extraction, DNA search, comparison, and results.
