This article offered digitalized authentication proceduresto authenticate and certify the artworks. Works of art are intricate constructions. When the original piece is lost or the forgers are exceptionally skilled at fooling the experts, art forgeries can be challenging to spot. In addition to art fraud, other types of art crimes, such art theft, are on the rise and are notoriously difficult to investigate. In order to stop such forgeries and thefts, this paper discusses numerous digital techniques employed in the authentication of artworks.
