Conducting Professional Investigations into the Authenticity of Drawings and Paintings believed to be by

Honoré-Victorin Daumier  1808- 1879

"The Michelangelo of Caricature"

 

 

 

 There are many fake Daumier works out there, drawings, prints and sketches in the main, floating around the art world and have been for aeons. Far too many in fact, but they are easy it would seem to fob off as real.

 Many Daumier re prints are commonly presented as legitimate Daumiers' and a firm favourite of the unscrupulous dealer and would be fraudsters, particularly when they bear all forms of believable inscriptions and notes.

Todays modern repro graphic techniques can be applied very effectively to assume the role of old Daumier etchings, but are really just new ones, based on his legitimate drawings and are often passed off as authentic Daumier graphics of the period.

 As to specific Daumier fakes, there are many hand coloured imitations which are really either just crayoned in, or watercoloured facsimiles. We've seen lots of direct pencil and ink copies too, which are made directly onto old paper which is easily obtained from antique books. Most of these are created by directly by copying from his early prints. These now claim to be an 'original' study for his graphics.

 Many Daumier fakes are traded on the open market with worthless but flowery COA'S stating their authenticity, particularly from the USA territories, so be cautious.

 But the fakers do make some vital errors in their 'new' Daumier faux works and no, I am not about to broadcast what they are to tip them off on this page. But do keep dropping those clangers please.

 

Here are one or two very dodgy Daumiers indeed and of course a real one, thanks to Christies..

    EXPERT IN THE FINE ART OF AUTHENTICATION

Authentication:  Investigation and research, with a view to establishing a full, internationally accepted, well proven and correctly underpinned certification of a work of art. This would include those works which may have a specific signatorial claim, or those with an earlier expert qualification of legitimacy, or those that currently have none. This requires dedicated, detailed international academic and archival research and a variety of forensic applications, in a well planned and thorough in depth investigation.

 Attribution:  Identifying and confirming the identity of a previously anonymous artist, studio or workshop from which a work of art probably first originated. One which may not have been previously known, or formerly identified beforehand.

 Revision:  Re examining and investigating an erstwhile, previously ascribed historical artist attribution which is possibly incorrect, or one that has been formally challenged.

 Confirmation:  Conducting the multilingual archival research required in investigating and confirming the provenance, lineage and prior history of ownership of a work of art internationally.

 Scrutiny:  Identifying premeditated fakes and forgeries, determining those which may be studio or later student copies, or previously misrepresented or wrongful attributions.

 Prosecution:  Investigating an alleged art fraud and forgery issue and assisting and advising those litigating or prosecuting the fact.

 Attention:  Conducting all fine art related due diligence and duty of care enquiries, the prepurchase or sale related studies and advising clients in matters of consolidating safe and secure future family distribution.

 

 

 

  Simply put, we are here to help in all fine art related matters.

THE  PRELIMINARY  ASSESSMENT  OF  VIABILITY STUDY

 

 Before entering into a full investigation of the legitimacy of a work of art that you believe may be by Honoré Daumier, be it simply academic, forensic or as with most cases, both forms of investigation, it is essential to know if the project is viable in the long term and more importantly, likely it could be proven. It's much the same as you would want to know if you were taking a legal case to court and were taking similar measured advise of your lawyer beforehand.

Logically, if it is unviable then its inadvisable to do so andyou should not even attempt it. The risk of failure is just too high.

 

 So at the Freemanart Consultancy, with 43 years of international experience in old and modern master investigations behind us, we prefer to make a preliminary and vital professional pre authentication assessment for clients first.

 This is a realistic and balanced, unbiased assesment and based upon the images you supply and the full details and the work of art's history and the provenance as is known to you.

 Simply put, a logical and cost effective professional assessment and advisory for which there is a modest set fee.

 

Do that first, then you'll know exactly where you stand.

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