Investigating the Authenticity of Works of art believed to be by or Attributed to

Johannes Ernst Ludwig Molzahn

Johannes Molzahn

1892 - 1965

German

 

  Johannes Molzahn was a relatively unknown self-taught Expressionist artist born in Germany in 1892, who eventually emigrated to the United States in 1938.
 
Molzahn first modestly apprenticed as a photographer before turning his hand to painting, moving on into graphic design and advertising for the shoe industry. But he soon made a name for himself as a painter, as is testified to by German Art forger Wolfgang Beltracchi who admitted to forging many works of art purported to be by Molzahn in his illicit career as a faker.

 

 A Portrait of Oskar Schlemmer, originally painted by Johannes Molzahn in 1930. Schlemmer was a fellow artist and colleague of Molzahn who specialized in painting, sculpture and choreography and would eventually become a target of the Nazis in their campaign against entartete kunst "degenerate art" that was considered un-German or Bolshevist in nature. "In 1987 Loretto Molzahn, widow of Johannes Molzahn, paid a Berlin dealer DM 60,000 for a portrait her husband had painted in 1930 of Oskar Schlemmer. The dealer had acquired the painting from Wolfgang Fischer. The painting proved to be fake and the Berlin dealer was given a suspended sentence in 1998.

Johannes Molzahn: Physikalisch-mechanische Parallelen, 1922

 

Lineare Farbkomposition

 

Beltracchi, is also alleged to have forged numerous art pieces purportedly by Molzahn, including this work called "Linear Colour Composition." Lineare Farbkomposition, that was sold for 15,000 deutsche marks.

Beltracchi tended to forge works of art that had been lost and which never appeared in any contemporary photographs.

 In recent years, an ever growing number of works of art including paintings bearing the name Johannes Molzahn have been consigned for sale in auctions around the world and as the values of his works of art climb, there is a greater need for the confirmation of legitimacy.

Works of art that do surface will require both a comprehensive and thorough investigation of their backgrounds and provenance and similar scrutiny given to confirm that any previously given attribution is correct. So too that any description itself of a work of art seemingly by Johannes Molzahn  can truly be relied upon.

 With such high values of his paintings prevailing in the art market and the wide demand even for even modest works, then attempts at imitation by forgery and at different levels, from the excellent fakes to the patently foolish, is an obvious but sad consequence.

Fine Art Authentication

 

 

 The duration and the direction of any authenticity investigation or an attribution of a work of art will inevitably vary from project to project. But there are clear and very well defined professional formalities, responsibilities and areas of scrutiny that we can formally assist you with, including:

 

  • Authentication: Authentification:   Conducting comprehensive investigations and in depth research into a work of art with a view to establishing a correct, complete and formally recognized certification. One absolutely upheld by the appropriate, legally acknowledged and internationally sanctioned authority, body or expert on that given artist. Directing detailed and complicated inquiries, with multilingual capability, including any international academic research and forensic applications that are required.

 

  •  Attribution: Identifying and confirming the identity of a previously anonymous artist, studio or workshop from which a work of art most likely originated. Including the re-examination and investigation of a previous attribution which may be incorrect, or the scrutiny of an attribution that has been formally questioned or is currently doubted.

 

 

  •  Confirmation:  Undertaking research and investigations into the legitimacy of the provenance, history and prior ownership of a work of art and establishing its accuracy and legitimacy.

 

  •  Scrutiny: Examen minutieux:Identifying fake or faux works of art and forgeries, including any false supportive accompanying documentation and determining works of art which may be studio or later copies, or previously given incorrect attributions.

 

  •  Prosecution: Poursuite: Investigating alleged art fraud and forgery and assisting and advising those who are currently , or may be considering litigating or prosecuting the fact. This includes colleagues who are legal professionals and individual private clients.

 

  •  Attention: Conducting all fine art related due diligence and duty of care inquiries. Including safe prepurchase or sale related audits and assisting clients in consolidating a well balanced future family distribution.

 

 

  •  Appraisal: Évaluation - Valuations and condition reports.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step one in the Art Authentication and Attribution 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.
