Konstantin Johannes Safiriou

He was our friend and inspiration.  Konstantin Johannes Safiriou (* 1949), private scholar, author, economic and cultural advisor, died too early, predictably and yet unexpectedly on September 14, 2020.

“Authentic or fake?” The risk to acquire a forgery is relatively high even for the experienced collector. It does make absolutely sense to specialize and to put main focuses on certain collective areas, to know genuineness criteria and forgery methods, to use advice by experts and media and, above all, to optimize constantly the own visual and haptic experience with objects of art. Authenticity in art is the different ways in
