JOHN CROME and the Norwich School Painters

English Romantic Painter, 1768-1821

  John Crome, also known as Old Crome, so as not to be mistaken for his artist son John Berney Crome, lived all his life in the east coast English city of Norwich which lies 160 miles north east of London.

  His artistic training was basic, guided by a local coach and sign writer called Francis Whistler with whom he spent seven years as an apprentice.

But it was an arts patron, Thomas Harvey, who had the most influence on John Crome's career as an artist. Firstly, introducing him to his own collection of fine Dutch artists works such as those painted by Hobbema, van Ruisdael and Cuyp whose influence in Crome's own work was dramatic.

 Crome's attention focussed largely on local landscapes and buildings and in particular the local rivers, coastline, mills and bridges and he was accredited early in his career as the founder member of the Norwich school. Or society of painters, whose members included John Sell Cottman, Henry Bright, Robert Ladbrook, James Stark, George Vincent and Thomas Lound, amongst others.

The Norwich School and John Crome Fakes:


  Always an issue, particularly when you have a large group of painters, who in the main, are focussing their attention on very similar subject matter
and painting very similarly in style and manner to those leading the fashion of the time, is to discern and differnetiate who exactly is who and who did what, particularly when paintings remain unsigned. And it is the unsigned, anonymous paintings which appear from both the time frame and a little later, that may be painted by true Norwich school affiliates, but also the circle and followers of the time and also just artist hobbyists. Artists who love and imitate the manner in which the Norwich school painters plied their trade. So often, it is these works of art which magically grow a brand new signature overnight and suddenly develop a pedigree and lineage worthy of a Gainsborough! This is one of the most common frauds in the art world we encounter. Added signatures, placed there to deceive and defraud. Nothing else. Sadly it's not a new trade, as it's been going on for time immemorial.

The other problem is previous expert, historic attributions, today disagreed with and seen as a mistake.

  Before entering headlong into a full investigation of the legitimacy or accuracy of attribution of a work of art you believe may be by John Crome or one of the Norwich School of artists, be it simply an academic investigation, forensic scrutiny, or as with most cases, both, it is essential to know if the project is viable in the long term and more importantly, possibly provable. Much as you would need to know if you were taking a legal case to court. Logically, if it is not, you should not even attempt it as the risk of failure is too high.

 

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

This is a study based upon the images you supply and the full details and the work of art's history and provenance.

So then, a logical, sound and cost effective professional assessment and advisory for which there is a modest set fee.

Then you'll know exactly where you stand.

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