Catalogue Raisonné

A catalogue raisonné is an exhaustive descriptive catalogue of all of the works by an artist, artistic school, or movement, which are known at the time of the catalogue’s compilation. The inclusion of an artwork in a catalogue raisonné is often considered to be the definitive signifier of authenticity, and accordingly extensive research and care is demanded in their compilation.
