Our Story

Around 20-50% of fine artworks circulating in the art market worldwide are forgeries, misattributions, or authorship unknown. The sector is notorious for asymmetrical, opaque and distorted information, forcing people to trade in uncertainty, sometimes with disastrous consequences - litigation, loss of wealth, stress and anxiety, risking buying fakes.

Purveyors of information include art history connoisseurs and materials art scientists - micro-business owners distributed globally, yet operating locally in isolated silos, their knowledge unshared.

For the past 25 years Dr Nicholas Eastaugh has been providing services to the art market, and recognised the opportunity to share his knowledge, and know-how with a wider audience through a different means. Thus, Vasarik was born to democratise access to accurate and timely information regarding artworks.

What our clients are saying about us

Testimonial 01

Dr Eastaugh has become the person I call first for incisive, authoritative and balanced technical analysis. He not only has excellent scientific knowledge, but a deep understanding of art history too, and will always keep looking for answers. He has an impressive ability to communicate his findings to both lay and expert audiences, and knows that resolving questions of authenticity and authorship doesn’t just lie in the data, but in the way you use it to build a wider argument too.

Testimonial 01

I’ve known Nicholas for a long time, so it was exciting to hear about Vasarik and the new team. I enjoyed working with Nicholas some years ago at Art Analysis, when I was fascinated by the projects he was working on and the groundbreaking approaches he was developing. I’m thrilled that he is now setting up a new business that not only helps individual clients but will also share his knowledge and skills far more widely through the latest technology.
