The investigative procedures for authenticating the art work, drawings and paintings of Edgar Degas.

 

 

 

 

Degas authentication experts original Degas

 

 

 


 

 Hilaire-Germain-Edgar Degas was a French painter and 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.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

Edgar Degas Art Authentication Investigations - Before you begin

 

 Before entering into a full investigation of the legitimacy of a work of art which you believe may possibly be by Edgar Degas, be it academic, forensic; or as with most cases, both, it is essential to know if the project is viable and more importantly, provable.
It's much the same as you would need to know if it was viable if you were taking a legal case to court.

 At this level, mainstream society makes demands that are are high. So there is no place for unsupported hypothesis, assumption, rash supposition and opinion alone.

To judge the issues of viability, we prefer to make a preliminary and vital professional pre authentication assessment for clients first.

One based upon the images you supply and the full details of the work of art's history and provenance.

Logically, if it is not realistic to do so, you should not attempt to progress it, as the risk of failure is too high.

This is a cost effective professional assessment and advisory service for which there is a modest set fee.

 

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

 

 

 

 

 

A word of caution: Expert authentication research and associated international investigation processes cannot be conducted from behind a desk which is geographically far away from where the artists physical archives are held. Nor can it be reliant upon the internet.

This is entirely why we are located in Europe, with both the access and the expertise to conduct such investigations efficiently and more importantly, correctly.

 

 

                             

                  

 

 

 British forger Tom Keating, the cheeky English faker of art, allegedly made dozens and dozens of fake Degas pastel drawings and many Degas paintings in his long career

All are works of art which he signed with the famous name, 'Degas.'

Like the Degas fake illustrated here to the right >

   But other 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.
