Authentication investigations of Paintings & Drawings believed to be by Ivan Bilibin

Билибин Иван Яковлевич

 

 

 Ivan Yakovlevich Bilibin - Билибин Иван Яковлевич (1876-1942) was a Russian artist and stage designer, born in St. Petersburg and one of  the finest of all Russian illustrators.

 

 Taking his inspiration mainly from Russian folk stories, (Russian skazki) early folk songs and fairy tales, the mountains and forests of Old Russia were dominant in his art.  His charming, accurate depictions of figures and historical costume were consistent and a unique Bilibin style emerged.

 Working using a combination of pen, ink and watercolour, he illustrated many Russian books and produced  designs for magazine articles and created book covers.  Amongst the most famous titles he illustrated were:

 The Firebird and the Grey Wolf, the Little White Duck, the Tale of Ivan the Tsar's Son, the Feather of Finist the Falcon, the Frog Princess, Vassilisa the Beautiful and Maria Morevna.

 Bilibin's rise to fame and fortune followed his acclaim and his original works were hugely sought after. It is no wonder that the fakers,  in tune to the rising values of his paintings and illustrations, soon cottoned on and the Bilibin fakes emerged. Often times planted in innocent European auction houses, along with fake provenance and histories. But we have seen fake Bilibins from as far afield as the USA, Canada and Australia!

 

 

 

 So could it be a real Ivan Bilibin picture you have tucked away in the attic or inside the old book under the bed? The one that your Great Grandfather swore was an authentic Bilibin? Or is it another early mistake made by the experts who thought it was a real Bilibin but got it very wrong by today's attribution standards and something just painted in Bilibin's style?

The problem is, it could always actually be a down and out fake Ivan Bilibin and there are lots out thereof course. Or perhaps it's just an innocent copy of one of his pictures painted by someone else, an amateur artist of student of the arts. Inevitably, lots would try

 Well you won't know till you do know and you can't do that from behind a desk somewhere and certainly not by looking in a book or trawling the internet late into the night.

So take advise from those who specialise in all Old and Modern Master authentication investigations and archival research who are based in Europe, well before you start investing a lot of money on what could be a wild goose chase.

 

                                                 

Bilibin Fake

 

 Before entering into a full investigation of the legitimacy of a work of art you believe may be by the Russian artist Ivan Bilibin, be it simply academic, forensic or as with most cases, both directions of investigation, it is essential to know if the project is at all viable in the long term and more importantly, possibly provable.

It's much as you would need to know if you were taking a legal case to court and were taking preliminary advise from your lawyer to balance the odds.

Logically, if it is not viable and its stacked against you, you should not even attempt it, as the risk of failure is too high.

 

 So at the Freemanart Consultancy, with 43 years of international experience in Russian art investigations behind us, we always prefer to make a preliminary and vital professional pre authentication assessment for clients first. This is based upon the images you supply and the full details and the work of art's history and provenance.

This is a logical and cost effective professional assessment and advisory for which there is a modest set fee. Do that, then you'll know exactly where you stand.

Please see our FAQ's which explains the process in detail.
