Authenticating  Cuban  Art
The fine art of  Authentication Cuban Art & Paintings

 Today’s global art market is a billion-dollar, international business, next only in its illegal value to the illicit dealers and cartels who pedal it as drug trafficking.

And a huge and prolific part of the art business is the trade in CUBAN ART, with both historic Cuban artists and modern Cuban artists being faked.

 

 

 Some of the most prolific fakers of art in the world are based not only in Cuba but Mexico, Spain and the USA and are currently faking the art of many Cuban artists such as;

Servando Cabrera, Victor Manuel, Pelaez, Portocarrero, Jose Maria Mijares, Fidelio Ponce, Sandu Darie, Lolo Soldevilla, Mario Carreño,  Amelia Pelaez,  Agustín Cárdenas, Wilfredo Lam and Cundo Bermudez. With the most faked of the group allegedly Cuban painters Rene Portocarrero, Amelia Pelaez and Roberto Fabelo.

 

And even more successfully, the Cuban contemporary art  fakers are forging art works by Cuban ‘living’ artists such as :

Fabelo, Cosme Proenza, Ernesto Rancaño, Alexis Leiva "Kcho," Pedro Pablo Oliva and Flora Fong. These modern contemporatry artists are even easier to fake, as the artist materials they use are so widely available.

 

 

 Florida is one International base for the trade in illicit Cubanism, with many galleries specializing in the trade of Cuban art prime and unwitting targets. But there is wide demand for Cuban art in California and New York too, with art investors keen to amass Cuban art collections.

 

 

 

Advice on the authenticity of a Cuban work of art?

 

Yes, you need it.

Before you begin a Full Scale Cuban Art Authentication Project:

 

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

It is a world where there is little room for conjecture and is all about reality.

 

 

 Most normal human beings are naturally guided here by a dream. A dream that what they have  or can possibly buy, may just be something special after all. They are beguiled by that magical rsainbow. A genuine hope 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 art 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, without a shadow of doubt and proven in many different ways; academically, forensically and in reality. All of this has to be achievable before the the work can be pronounced absolutely authentic.

 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 'preliminary assessment' conducted first.

 A pre authentication assessment, is a professional assessment which is based upon reality. It balances the viability of your work of art and its background and assesses the possibility based on our past experiences, 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 possibility that the work of art could be right, can we diminish the risks and do we have any serious chance achieving our objective?

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

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

It makes a great deal of sense.
