Every exhibit at Masterpiece is vetted by a team of over 150 leading international specialists comprising scholars drawn from all areas of the art world, including museum curators, conservators, auctioneers, dealers and galleries. Twenty-seven individual Vetting Committees examine each piece in their own field to ensure that the exhibit is in good condition, clearly labelled, and worthy of exhibition at Masterpiece.
