Provenance is not exclusive to antiques. Artists produce certificates of provenance when they sell their work. It is a record of who has had ownership of the piece and lends itself to the originality of the work. Artists who use students or apprentice in their studio set out in their certs of Provenance that they either worked on the piece themselves or they list off who also worked on it. Along with certs of Provenance, are gallery labels and show documentation.

Provenience is the precise location where an artifact or archaeological sample was recovered archaeologically.

When I sell a painting, I file a copyright registration, complete a cert of provenance, a gallery history, photographs of the work, any insurance information and a complete list of where the piece has been shown. I also make sure the buyer is aware of licensing restrictions, reproduction restrictions and conservation requirements. My paintings are not antiques ..well not yet anyway...lol
