'There are more than 5000 of Corot's works right in the United States.' According to art historians thorough research Corot created about 3000 'works Frank Arnau writes in his books 'The art of forgers - art forgers'.
The phenomenon of art forgery occurred when a work of art became a commodity, which was two thousand years ago, and it has been practiced until today. As a matter of fact the practice has thrived because works of art, particularly paintings, have become the most secure investment bearing the highest interest. As a result, the art market is full of sometimes brilliant forgeries of outstanding artists - works which are sold in good faith by reputable galleries and auction houses.
The name 'Art Decorum' adopted by the Gallery is an obligation because the term 'decorum' denotes not only beauty and decorativeness but also honesty and responsibility as well as dignity and glory.
Works of art offered by Art Decorum are authorized by their creators or have unquestionable and evidenced provenance. Additionally, they are protected by most modern electronic digital systems which enables fast, easy and exact identification in case of theft, which, like forgery, has become more and more frequent nowadays. Art Decorum offers works of popular and recognized artists .
Beside works from the leading Gallery of Masters who have an established position in the history of modern art and on the art market, Art Decorum also offers works of artists who undoubtedly will be recognized masters soon.
Art Decorum - exceptional artists and an exceptional gallery which fully merits its name.
The Cracow Beaux-Arts Society is expressing their gratitude to their member in Cracow, the owner of ART DECORUM gallery, Mr. Przemysław Witek for conducting the first digital cataloguing of works of art which are owned by the Society.
The collection comprising a few thousand very precious paintings, engravings, drawings, pieces of furniture, porcelain, old prints, have been professionally documented and digitally saved.
In the years 1996 – 2006 Mr. Witek made a comprehensive photographic and digital documentation and prepared, described and catalogued our collection according to our wish.
The digital way of retaining data allows for using them for editorial, scientific, educational and exhibiting purposes as well as in the Internet.
