 The Italian painter Giorgio de Chirico is one of the top 10 most forged and faked artists in history,

second only to Modigliani in the list of the most faked Italian painters ever.

     

 Principally, de Chirico was the founder of the Metaphysical painting movement - or Pittura Metafisica. Working alongside Carlo Carra, in the north Italian city of Ferrara, they painted in a realistic style, usually images of empty squares and piazzas that were typical of Italian towns and cities. These were not just normal paintings though. They placed unusual objects within them, such as strange statues and over enlarged fruit, which as compositions are brought together beyond reality, in a mysterious and dream like fashion.

To say the least, these very individual paintings became enormously popular.
However, there was a slightly greyer side to the man.

 

De Chirico Verifalsi

  In time, Giorgio de Chirico would paint many near exact copies of some of his earlier works from his most important pre-war period, but backdating them and putting them on the art market as they fetched a higher price than his later works.

A scandal resulted in the 1920's with many collectors litigating when they realised they had not bought a so called 'original' work from such an important time in his career but a later copy.

 In the 20's de Chirico had moved away from his earlier metaphysical and surrealistic paintings, choosing instead to paint mythological figures such as gladiators, horses and even furniture. But collectors were uninterested in his change of style and he knew it.


With so few of his early works available and the popularity of his Metaphysical works in particular in high demand, de Chirico took it upon himself to accept commissions, reproducing many copies of his principal paintings for collectors. Today this causes considerable headaches for many scholars.

 He called these copies verifalsi, or “true fakes” and didn't see any ethical reason why he shouldn't duplicate his own work whatsoever.

 

De Chirico Forgeries.

 The Italian master forger, Renato Peretti, on his own admission produced around 1,000 paintings in his illicit career as an art forger.
Included amongst them were numerous forgeries of De Chirico’s work, as well as fake works pretending to be by Giorgio Morandi, De Pisis and Carrà.

 De Chirico style replicas were also forged by artists such as Max Ernst, Remedios Varo and Óscar Domínguez and bore similar signatures to de Chirico's, but are usually fairly easily identifiable by comparable study.

Step one in the Authentication process:

The Pre-Authentication Assessment

 

    Before you begin any authenticity, legitimacy, or artist attribution investigation, it is wise to have an impartial preliminary assessment of the viability of the project conducted first. One made to independently and rationally balance any negative issues there may be against the positive. You should treat this study as a safety net.

 We will be happy to professionally undertake this for you, based upon good quality images that you supply and all the known facts regarding its acquisition, the history and provenance of the work of art as is known to you.

You will then have a far better understanding of the prospects and indeed the possible pitfalls that could lie ahead.
