WHY IS THE  AUTHENTCATION  OF FINE   ART - DRAWINGS,  PAINTINGS,  SCULPTURE  IMPORTANT?

 

  •  Art authentication identifies any physical contravention of international law and denies the process of art fraud and therefore the success of criminality.

 

  •  Art authentication is a critical measure in maintaining the integrity of art history, including its most respected artists and their art.

 

  •  The vast variety and complexity of the procedures and investigations into the authentication of art are vital measures in the detection and prosecution of art fraud and forgery, enables society to sustain the ethic of honesty in our culture.

  • Art authentication therefore both upholds the social & financial value of art, thus preserving the quality of aesthetics.

The Primary Viability Study.

The pre authentication assessment.

 

*A totally objective, unbiased and professional, preliminary assessment of the viability of your individual case, is an essential part of the art authentication process. This is conducted 'before' you invest in what can be long, difficult and complex legitimacy investigation. In the end it can save a fortune in unnecessary and unwise expense.

"Contrary to other forms of fraud, art fraud has

its own peculiar feature.

The victim is a victim but may not know it !"

Interpol International

 

 

 

 

 

How to catch out the faker.

 

 

 

 On the left is an image we took recently of two paintbrush hairs we had identified, embedded by pigment. They appeared within a painting purportedly by French artist Paul Gauguin.

(7 June 1848 – 8 May 1903)

Note, they are tubular in shape.

 These are extruded filaments, acrylic bristles if you will and an invention of the nineteen sixties.

A major mistake made by our would be faker but missed by the new owner of the Gauguin fake who parted innocently with thousands!

IS   YOUR    ARTWORK  -   PAINTING   OR   PRINT   AUTHENTIC   OR    A    FAKE?

 

  In a global epidemic of fakes appearing as either reprographic print or original antique paintings and drawings, never before has it been more important for owners, collectors & art investors to be certain of the true origins and the authenticity of their fine art, paintings, pictures or the print they have just bought. Authentication Investigation and Research is essential.

 

 

 Sadly, most of our everyday internet enquiries question the authenticity of such art work, be it a painting or a limited edition print. Many of which might be signed, claim to be by, or is believed to be by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro or Marc Chagall.

 More & more often, concerned clients contact us because they feel they need to have their artwork authenticated by specialist art authentication experts who thoroughly & independently research and investigate the work for them.

 Far too often the clients doubts can be put down to internet sales opportunities as many purchases originate from a variety of often times 'dubious connections' individuals have made through the Internet. Ebay is one, there are others.

 At best, you will have invested in fine art, 'sight unseen' and inevitably based purely on photographs, with most of the art works coming to you without firm or provable provenance and with judgments based entirely on the rather slim chance that what you are buying just 'might' be right?

 It's a sad fact but nevertheless true, that much of the art that we see as appraisers, authenticators and investigators of fine art, particularly expensive paintings, limited edition prints and drawings which have originated from such sources unfortunately prove to be fake!

 These days, with issues concerning art authentication and in particular, the authentication of paintings by such important artists as Picasso, this subject now forms a substantial part of our weekly work schedule. Our old friends Miro and Marc Chagall coming in as close runners up in the fakes stakes.

However, we have specialists and art experts on hand to specifically advise you on art authentication processes for these and all other artists.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before you begin a full scale Art  Authentication Project:

YOU NEED A  PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENT  OF VIABILITY

Below: Fake 19C Da Vinci Old Master

 

 

Art authentication is not about guesswork and certainly not about wishful opinion.

It is a real world where there is little or no room for conjecture, hypothesis and opinion alone. It is all about reality.

 

Fake Da Vinci Old Master

 

 

 Most normal human beings are naturally guided here to us on the internet by a dream.  And why not?

It's a dream that what they have  may just be something special after all.  A hope that they are beguiled by. That magical possibility that their work of art may be authentic but they simply don't know if there is any reality in it.

For now, it's just a possibility that what they believe to be true, what they have been told is true or what they want to believe is true, is actually true!

But do remember, with authentication, that dream has to be absolutely proven, just like a case placed before a court of law.

 In court, any case must be proven and adjudged convincingly, won without a shadow of any doubt and proven in many different ways; academically, forensically and in actuality. Like in a court case judgement, all of this has to be 'achievable' before the work can be pronounced absolutely authentic.

 

 So before you get into the procedures minefield which can evolve with art authentication, a field which may be both financially and emotionally taxing, it is more than wise to be realistic about the issue and have an independent and more importantly, an unbias 'preliminary assessment' conducted of the viability of the piece's authenticity first.

 A pre authentication assessment therefore is a professional assessment which is based upon pure reality. It balances the viability of your work of art and its background together and assesses the possibility, based on our past experience, that the case may be realistically followed through and eventually possibly be proven.

The advice you get will be invaluable and based upon the simple question; Is there any reality in the notion that possibly the work of art could be right? Next: Can we diminish the risks involved at all and finally, do we have any serious chance at all of achieving our objective?

If a project is literally not achievable and not provable, surely it would be sensible to know that up front from the start!

 

 Such an unbias assessment then allows the client to make a wiser, more considered decision and apply a greater degree of sensibility in taking the leap into a staged, full blown art authentication investigation.

 

 

It makes a great deal of sense.

 

 

 

 

 

          

 

 

 

 

     
   


FAKE  PAINTINGS &  COUNTERFEIT  WORKS

 

About fakes

 

 

  In our 'About Fakes' section of this extensive web site, we review some of the more interesting cases and investigations into fake and counterfeit art that we have been involved with over the years, identifying one of the most common frauds we see.

 

 

 This undoubtedly is the application of fake signatures to reprints, usually offset lithographic variations of etchings and limited edition prints. Again, most of these fakes tend to be purportedly by Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall and Joan Miro. They are the most common fakes of type we see in printed form.

 

 When it comes to questions of art authentication, next in line in the forgery stakes are added or altered signatures on paintings. Followed in antiques by pirated copies of rare porcelain or glass ware and most definitely - fake celebrity autographs added by another hand or simply auto pen applied.

 Some clients acquire their art through inheritance where perhaps a fraud was effected years ago, but others make their mistakes at land based auctions or have bought artworks through  Ebay on the internet. Whatever the way they come by their pictures, paintings, prints or antiques, people around the world turn to Freemanart for professional help when it comes to art authentication and proving the authenticity of art.

 

 Freemanart investigate annually the authenticity of literally thousands of purportedly original oil paintings, limited edition prints and drawings, also examining a similar number of "believed to be authentic" Stradivarius and Amati Violins & numbers of VERY questionable Scrimshaw, Gallé, Limoge, Doulton, Chiparus & Tiffany. Add to this list, highly dubious Degas, Renoir & Pissarro paintings, plus lithographs bearing worthless and flowery Certificates of Authenticity. Drawings, etchings and limited edition prints by artists such as Max, Andy Warhol, Picasso & particularly, Miro & Marc Chagall, you will see that the world faces a serious problem  when it comes to identifying the real from the fakes.

The legitimate from the forgeries.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Investigations into the Authenticity & Attribution of Old Master Works

Art authentication and authentification issues surrounding old master works of art.

Old master art authentication investigations
Old master authentication

  

 

 

 

 

  As fine art consultants, Freemanart have undertaken and conducted many major investigations into Old Master works of art over the years, undertaking serious investigations into authentication issues, matters of legitimacy, incorrect attribution, re attribution and  general authentication, working on major investigations from our bases in the UK, Canada, Italy, Belgium, Holland, Germany Spain and France.

 Naturally our general art authentication studies include both the modernists and the impressionist schools however, there have been many important works by fine Italian, Flemish, French, Spanish & German Old Masters, their pupils, studios and circles.

Our catalogue of completed projects forms an extensive and impressive list:

   

 

 Past matters of old, master art authenticity and attribution we have investigated, included serious works of art executed by highly regarded individual artists of the Italian - Venetian and Neopolitan schools alongside Florentine, Genoise and Veronese masters of the Italian school. Other investigations effected by Freemanart include those conducted into the legitimacy of oil paintings believed to be by or previously attributed to, the following old masters. (In no particular order and by prior attributed claim)

A full list of these investigations can be found here: CLICK

Detailed Services Summary:


 A detailed summary of the services offered by the Freemanart Consultancy and its wide variety of art and antiques authentication procedures follows.

Please navigate the buttons on the left of your screen (above) to learn more on each topic.

 The clients relying on Freemanart, often specifically require the authentication and appraisal of British,  American, Canadian and European Art and Antiques. This level of workload would normally include the investigation, attribution and authentication of oil paintings, the authentication and attribution of water colours, the authentication of acrylic paintings, pictures and prints. We also concentrate on authenticating many different artist’s graphic works and which  includes; etchings, engravings, lithographs, mono prints, serigraphs, silk screen, wood block and limited edition prints.

 

 Freemanart also employ experts whose area of expertise is in the authentication, valuation and appraisal of ceramics, pottery, figurines and furniture and collectibles.

In relation to three dimensional works and pottery particularly Picasso ceramics, there are a wide variety of authentication issues which currently surround the levels of fake and faux Picasso ceramic works which are available for sale on the market.

At Freemanart, our experts also value and investigate the authenticity of and appraise rare and antique books, bibles and first editions, maps, photographs, authenticate autographs and  drawings in pencil, silver point, pen and ink and charcoal. Coins, medals, stamps, postcards and private collections of all kinds.

Art Fakes and Forgery:

As Art and Antiques appraisers specifically specialising in the field of the authentication of paintings, pictures and antiques, we also aim to identify and investigate both art and document forgery, including fakes and art forgeries of all kinds.

To this end, Freemanart have specialists who specialise in the identification of fake and illegitimate works of art of all kinds and also forged, copied and illegitimate signatures.

 

Naturally, much of our work load is taken up with the authentication of paintings, but we also authenticate drawings, ceramics, sculpture and limited edition prints too, particularly those attributed to, claiming to be by or after Pablo Ruiz Picasso.

However, Joan Miro and Marc Chagall also account for a large proportion of our authentication schedule and the business of authenticating artwork. Particularly the authentication of artist’s signatures.

Our About Fakes section and archive specifically covers this subject with good examples of fake works by artists such as Picasso  http://www.artfake.net is also an excellent resource on art fraud, forgery, fakes and illegitimate art for interested parties.
