Inventory & Cataloguing Service
Artwork documentation is crucial for the protection of art and antiques, as the police can rarely recover and return objects that do not have adequate textual and photographic records. John Jones specialise in providing cataloguing and photography services to record these details to the highest standards, providing valuable information which can aid the recovery of lost or stolen items.
A John Jones inventory includes a detailed review of the current level of documentation surrounding your fine art collection, with advice on how to improve these records for security, conservation and logistical purposes. The John Jones Cataloguing Service compiles the existing artwork details of every piece in your collection, carrying out thorough research on the artist, technique or period, producing in-depth artwork condition reports, and documenting the collection through high resolution photography. For more information on documenting your own artwork, please contact our collection management team.
