The Catalogue Raisonné Scholars Association

Catalogue Raisonné: [Fr., = carefully studied or methodical catalogue.] A descriptive catalogue arranged according to subjects, or branches of subjects; hence gen. or loosely, a classified or methodical list. (OED)

The Catalogue Raisonné Scholars Association was founded in 1994 to serve the interests of scholars and others engaged in the catalogue raisonné process. Our members typically research a single artist’s body of work to establish a reliable list of authentic works, their chronology, and history (usually including provenance, bibliographic, and exhibition histories). Our membership also includes those who are not actively engaged in such a project but who have a keen interest in this type of work such as patrons, collectors, art dealers, attorneys, and software designers.
