   Why is the authentication of art necessary?

 

 

  • Art authentication identifies any physical contravention of international law and denies the process of art fraud and forgery. Therefore impeding the success of criminality or possible activity in this criminal sphere.

 

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

 

  • Art authentications investigative procedures are vital measures in the detection and prosecution of art forgery enabling us to sustain the ethic of honesty in society.

 

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

FREEMANART  ART  AUTHENTICITY   &  ART  FRAUD  INVESTIGATORS

 

Established for over 43 years.

 

 

 

 The Freemanart Consultancy are highly experienced in undertaking and pursuing international investigations into the authenticity and legitimacy of fine art.

 Our professional services include; International archival research and a variety of forensic applications, proof of provenance confirmation and conducting all art related due diligence and duty of care scrutiny for our clients  who come from all walks of life.

 When it comes to European origin artists, be they termed as Old Masters or Modern Masters, Renaissance artists to the more Modern creators, their legal rights are vehemently protected by law. Much as is the integrity of art history. This is by European Union Statute and very specific laws of the artist Nations of origin.

 As such, no one other than those appointed committees, fully recognised regulated bodies or individual experts, who may be individuals or panels of experts, absolutely recognised as being the ultimate authority on that artist, including the artist's copyright holders or siblings, can pronounce upon and thus underwrite, fully guaranteeing authenticity. This means, one which is accepted and unquestioned around the world.

 To believe that someone behind a desk somewhere across the Atlantic, can provide a Certificate of Authenticity which is internationally accepted on a major artist of European origin is simply a lie.

It is not so.

 Anyone is perfectly entitled to give an opinion, but to absolutely confirm legitimacy is a different issue altogether. Take such a certificate of authenticity to Sotheby's or Christies after you pay for one and see what they have to say !

 

Do be very cautious indeed.

 

 

 

 To fully process, investigate and build an irrefutable case, be that for or against the legitimacy of a work of art, if you are intent on prosecuting a fraud, or needing to absolutely underpin its authenticity, as demanded by society and one that is accepted internationally, their is only one way to proceed.

 In that respect, we offer to undertake all of the multiple procedures, measures and diverse activities, wherever that may take us, that are necessary in following the investigative process,working for clients from both the Private and Corporate sector.

 This typically includes the investigation of the authenticity of paintings and works of art of all types, genres and manners. From all geographical areas, schools and periods of art history.


 Working multilingually from International bases & Forensic Laboratories in the France, Spain, Italy, Germany, the UK and North America, we offer expert
art authentication investigation services from medieval times to the Renaissance Old Masters and far beyond, to Picasso, the impressionists and modernists.

 

 

ART AUTHENTICATION    - ART FRAUD DETECTION

 

 When it comes to the very serious subject of art authentication, looking at a picture and passing an opinion is just not good enough. It actually proves nothing.

Neither is looking for an answer in a book, or leaning on the Internet for a set piece answer or end result.

In the real world, it just doesn't work like that and it wont happen.!

 Art Authentication is a finely tuned art in itself and why thousands turn to Freemanart for professional help with investigating art authentication.

 

 So every case must be soundly and professionally investigated to the highest levels possible in order to prepare a responsible and convincing case to present to the appointed and or accepted body for underpinning an attribution.

You don't go there without a case, you would lose and lose it you will.

A work of art deemed a fake by that body can be seized and destroyed and all quite legally.

The Disciples at Emmaus

*Many art appraisers claim to 'authenticate' works of art, but frankly, they cannot.

 

 To 'Appraise' is to estimate the monetary value and determine the physical worth of an item. This has nothing to do with art authentication, its status, nor proving of the legitimacy of that art work, irrefutably and with international acceptance.

 Many art appraisers neither have the practical capacity, nor the academic qualifications, nor are they situated in the best geographical locality to do the work. Seldom do they have that logistical ability at their fingertips, or the subjective experience, requisite recognised qualification and the overall facility to conduct art authentication investigations to the very best and most thorough levels for their clients.

 

By definition, art appraisers Value art and Do Not Authenticate art.

Be cautious of that fact.

 

 

 

 

"Art Fraud is a crime second only to drug trafficking and one which in the USA alone brings in over $64 Billion dollars a year."

 

 There are still many, many fake paintings and drawings which have been previously introduced into the art world and still are being and at an alarming rate. Remember too that there are are a vast number of exceptionally talented professional fakers out there and all are artists who are still producing highly sophisticated fakes and forgeries. To make matters worse, they also produce supportive provenance and historically believable paper trails to go with them.

Essentially, they create a convincing history to accompany a drawing, painting or sculpture.

That Provenance of a work of art also needs to be thoroughly investigated and in itself, proven to be legitimate. It can then be taken seriously, responsibly and also become internationally accepted.

 Add to the equation the vast number of small time crooks and swindlers passing off mediocre re-signed paintings & drawings, introduced through Internet sites and questionable auctioneers who sell them as authentic to the gullible and the subject of chasing down art authentication becomes a very serious business indeed.
