What Does Attributed Mean?

Some of the bidders in the Woodshed Art Auctions are confused about a little word in some of the descriptions. I’m often asked “What does it mean — Attributed (to an artist)?”, “Who does the attributing?”, “Is that a guarantee of authenticity?”, “Is there a certificate about the attribution?” If you’ve been wondering about how and why attribution is assigned to an artwork in our auctions, please see the video for my ten-minute answer. I hope it sheds light on the subject for you.
