    I'm looking for a target to produce accurate results in art reproduction, current options include the colorchecker sg / cmp.fr targets / basiccolor dcam i+

    The best for input characterization is the Hutch Color's Target.

    However... they are not cheap at all :)

    As far as I've learned the best target for art-repro is made from the same pigments which make up the painting + a (near) perfect diffuser (i.e. Halon tape or BaTiO3). Alternatively I would use targets with real pigments (like Xrite's Colorchecker Passport (for raw conversion) and/or Colorchecker SG (icc conversion) but you'll have to correct manually, so a high-end monitor and a monitor calibration instrument (matched to monitor) is a must.

    Yes, I agree with you. For colorimentric device calibration it's much better to have target made with the same pigment.
    I had experience in making custom targets for scanner profiling and they were good. But it's necessary to have spectrophotometer to make reference file for the target.
