The International Foundation for Art Research (IFAR) is a non-profit educational and research organization dedicated to integrity in the visual arts. IFAR’s website is host to Art Law and Cultural Property databases, a catalogue raisonné database, and provenance research guide. The organization also does authentication research, holds lectures and events, and publishes an award-winning journal.
Victoria began as an intern at IFAR, where she assisted with authentication projects and undertook provenance research projects relating to paintings in an American museum collection. After completing graduate school, Victoria was asked to return as a consultant, assisting with miscellaneous provenance projects and writing a guide to conducting provenance research for IFAR’s website (not yet posted).
