    Below there are two examples of Data Point Distribution (DPD) and their relationship to the Designated Artist Target Zone (DATZ). Both examples appear in a similar graphic format to that which appears in the various Catalogue Raisonnés.
    The image designated as rss-458 is the DPD transposed on the DATZ from image rcr-121 on the previous page. shows the results for a typical misattribution. Note that fifteen of the IDP form a DPD located within the DATZ for Gerrit Willemz Horst and one IDP is on the edge of the same DATZ. The painting is clearly by the artist Horst and not by Rembrandt.
    The painting represented by graphic rcr-121 has been accepted as a Rembrandt masterpiece since the middle of the eighteenth century. The painting is signed with Rembrandt’s name and is dated. Its image appears in virtually every tome written on Rembrandt van Rijn. Various scholars and experts have written wonderful analyses explaining why the painting is an unusual masterpiece for Rembrandt. However, the real reason that the painting is unusual for Rembrandt is that it was painted by Gerrit Horst, not by Rembrandt.




    The image designated as vdc-701 shows the results typical of a Misattribution. Note that none of the IDP are located within the DATZ for Sir Anthony van Dyck or are even visible on the compressed graphic. However, the sixteen IDP form a tightly clustered DPD within the DATZ of an unknown artist. Two IDP are in the same location and thus appear as only one IDP.
    The graphic representing the DPD shown on the DATZ for this unknown artist is shown on the next page. Veritus has a high level of confidence that the name of this artist will be identified as more of his or her paintings are located. To date, Veritus has located seven of his or her paintings hidden within the works of Sir Anthony van Dyck. Veritus has found several other paintings by the same artist which were masquerading as paintings by other Northern European artists.
