Galerie Art Eterne provides an assurance on behalf of the seller that each piece of art which we offer for sale is a genuine work of the artist listed.
Galerie Art Eterne guarantees the authenticity of the artwork for a period of one year. Authenticity in relation to artworks shall mean compliance of the artwork with the description provided on the web site, particularly with reference to the name of the artist, title (if any) of the artwork itself, date, dimensions, medium, etc.
In the unlikely event that within one year from the sale of the artwork, it is proved by the buyer to the reasonable satisfaction of Galerie Art Eterne that the item was not authentic and if, in Galerie Art Eterne's opinion, this would have significantly impacted the price a buyer would have been willing to pay for the item, Galerie Art Eterne shall be entitled to rescind the sale and the seller will be liable to refund to the buyer the price paid for the item, once the buyer returns the item to Galerie Art Eterne. Galerie Art Eterne shall hand over to the seller the item returned by the buyer.
All such claims will be handled on a case-by-case basis, and in the case of an authenticity claim will require that examinable proof, which clearly demonstrates that the item is not authentic, is provided by an established and acknowledged authority. The decision of Galerie Art Eterne in respect of such claims shall be final and binding.
This guarantee shall be subject to the following conditions:
The claim is made by the buyer as registered with Galerie Art Eterne (the benefit of the claim is not assignable to any subsequent owners or others who may acquire or have an interest in any of the items)
The item is returned in the same condition that it was in at the time of delivery of the item to the buyer.
The item was indisputably purchased through Galerie Art Eterne
Galerie Art Eterne retains the right to consult with, at the expense of the buyer, two recognized experts in the field, (such experts being mutually acceptable to Galerie Art Eterne and the buyer), to examine the item under question before deciding to rescind the sale and offer the refund under the above guarantee. The opinion of the experts shall not be binding on Galerie Art Eterne.
In the event of the seller's failure to refund the proceeds as stated above, the buyer shall return the item to Galerie Art Eterne and authorize Galerie Art Eterne as its agent to initiate legal proceedings against the seller. Any such steps taken or legal proceedings instituted by Galerie Art Eterne against the seller shall be to the cost of the buyer.
