TAG Registries is an independent company that is not affiliated with TAG World artists, TAG World artists’s estates, or any other foundation or organization connected with the work of TAG World artists.

We at TAG Registries take seriously the job of creating a registry system for the works of well-known artists. From time to time the verification procedures we use involve contacting one or more of the foundations and other organizations established by a famous artist or his or her estate whose purpose is to catalogue and track the whereabouts of the artist’s body of work. As part of our mission TAG Registries may also use the name of the artist, thumbnail images of one or more of the artist’s works, and assorted other items associated with the artist. None of these facts however should be construed as a representation that TAG Registries is affiliated or has established any other type of formal relationship with TAG World artists, TAG World artists’s estates, or any other foundation or organization connected with the work of TAG World artists, unless we explicitly state otherwise in clear and unequivocal written terms.
