If it is a painting, look at the stretchers; were they manufactured commercially? If so, this will give an indication of the age of the work. If a sculpture is cast bronze, look for foundry marks, copyright date, edition number, and where the foundry is located. With paintings and works on paper, always examine the back of the object.

With sculpture, look underneath and if it is hollow cast inside the object for inscriptions or signs of its age. Take photos or make drawings of these marks exactly as they look —no detail is too small to dismiss. Make notes on exactly where the marks appear. If the object is a painting, is it oil, acrylic, watercolor, tempera, or other material?
