Jean-Honoré Fragonard  - French 1732-1806

 

 

                                       

      Shepherdess  by Jean-Honore Fragonard

 

 The French romantic Rococo painter, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, was principally known best for his sensual paintings of the French aristocracy, usually set in their hedonistic pursuit of pleasure and sensual self-indulgence. As an artist, Fragonard was a specialist in creating landscapes made in dreams and for painting fine portraits. He began a style and fashion in its time that would be widely emulated and many works, wrongly attributed to the man clearly exist, probably simply mistaken attributions becasue the subject matter and style fitted at the time.

 You would not expect Fragonard to be actually faked these dyas. But he was back then and has been in modern times. You only have to read recent reports of dozens of so called 'legitimate' Fragonard drawings being labelled as forgeries and other major works of art being withdrawn from major auction, believed to be fakes, to understand the scale of the problem.
One recently reported case included the rather rash attempt to sell a Fragonard fake to a middle eastern billionairre. 

 Below is a copy of a Fragonard, easily misconstued as legitimate if presented as authentic and the seller has the forged provenance and aging right.  So the confusion now lies in what exactly it is you may have? There is a distinct difference in qualification and the description. By Fragonard is straightforwrd, it means all are satisfied that it is a legitimate work. But attributed to is an opinion  only. Someone in his studio perhaps, from his circle? Is it a copy, made then or now, or something created by a follower, in his style or a down and out fake Fragonard, that is the puzzle?

    EXPERT IN THE FINE ART OF AUTHENTICATION

Authentication:  Investigating, with a view to establishing a fully, internationally accepted, well proven and correctly underpinned certification of a work of art. Including 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 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 previously anonymous artist, studio or workshop from which a work of art likely first originated. One which may not have been previously known or formerly identified beforehand.

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

 Confirmation:  Conducting the 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 and assisting and advising those litigating or prosecuting the fact.

 Attention:  Conducting all fine art related due diligence and duty of care enquiries, prepurchase or sale related studies and advising in matters of consolidating safe 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 Fragonard, be it simply academic, forensic or as with most cases, both direction of investigation, it is essential to know if the project is viable in the long term and more importantly, possibly provable. It's much the same as you would want to know where you stood 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 and you 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 always prefer to make a preliminary and vital professional pre authentication assessment for clients first.

 

 This is a realistic and balanced, unbiased assesment and judgement, 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.

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

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