EDGAR  DEGAS - ART AUTHENTICATION
Authenticating  the  artwork, drawings and paintings of  Edgar  Degas

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Hilaire-Germain-Edgar Degas was a French painter & an artist who is often regarded as the true founder of the French impressionist artist movement.

 

When thinking of the art of Edgar Degas, you would automatically associate him with the ballet  & dancers, soft portraits drawn in pastel, women at their toilette, images of laundry workers, cabaret singers and racecourse scenes.

 

In essence, Edgar Degas works epitomise life in Paris where he was born and where he spent his life. But the majority of Degas fake works and forgeries on the open market today are undoubtedly based upon Degas fine ballet drawings in pastel and forgeries of his oil paintings.

Sadly, we see many examples of fake Degas art each year. Many Degas forgeries naturally appearing for sale on internet sites such as Ebay. But an ever increasing and alarming amount of fake Edgar Degas works coming onto the market through small auction houses and estate sales across the world.

 

 

 

 

 British forger Tom Keating, the cheeky English faker of art, allegedly made dozens and dozens of fake Degas pastel drawings and Degas paintings in his long career. Works of art which he signed with the famous name, 'Degas.'

Like the Degas fake illustrated here>

 

Another four fake Edgar Degas drawings appear below.

   But some Edgar Degas fakes & forgeries are very good indeed, winning over opinion easily with art investors & Degas admirers keen to acquire what they believe is an original Degas painting or drawing..

 Take a look at these convincing examples of Edgar Degas works below...both of which are fakes!

  The majority of fake Edgar Degas paintings and drawings we see and in particular Edgar Degas pastel studies are relatively new drawings and compositions. Works which are based on single elements taken from within an already authenticated major art works by the artist Edgar Degas. Perhaps just one figure plucked from within it and then replicated. As in the drawings to the left below

This type of forgery is designed to make the purchaser believe it is a genuine, Degas created - preliminary study made prior to the major work by the artist being accomplished.

In fact, it's the other way around. The finished Degas article comes first.... then along come the fakes.

Clever or not, it is still a crime, a fraud, a deception and a criminal act, deservedly criminally prosecuted internationally.
