paintings used as benchmarks to evaluate other paintings

Is there a special word (phrase) for a (old master's) painting whose authenticity is beyond disoute and which is used as a benchmark, a point of reference for authenticating and establishing the authorship of other paintings presumably from the same period and / or by the same master? Many thanks!!!
