Chagall Art Authentication Investigations

Before you begin the process.

 

Marc Chagall - Freemanart Art Authentication experts

 

* Before entering into a full investigation of the legitimacy of a work of art which you believe may possibly be by Chagall, be it academic, forensic, or as with most cases, both forms of scrutiny, it is essential to know if the project is viable and more importantly, possibly provable.
Much the same kind of assurance that you would require if you were thinking about taking a legal case to court.

At this level, societies demands are high when it comes to ruling on authenticity. So there is no place for unsupported, nor impractical hypothesis, unreliable assumption, nor any supposition and unfound opinion alone.

 To measure and balance this serious issue 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 arts history.

Logically, if it is not realistic to do so, you should not move on. Frankly 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 investigations and attribution research cannot be conducted from behind a desk set geographically far away from where artists physical archives are. Nor can it be soleley reliant upon the Internet. This is exactly why we have bases here in Europe, where we have both access to those archives and the international expertise to conduct investigations efficiently.

 Be cautious too, of anyone offering you a certificate of authenticity. Yes of course they can give their opinion, but is it recognised internationally? At this level, answer, almost certainly not.

Only those recognised by law and legally empowered are able to do that and they are exactly the ones who we have to present the case to in the final analysis.

 

 

 

 

 

CHAGALL PRINTS

   **Due to the large number of forgeries and fake Chagall prints sold on Internet auction sites as originals we have seen and investigated, we no longer engage in the investigation or pursue the authentication of any Chagall signed limited edition prints.

We respectfully suggest that you personally reference the excellent Catalogue Raissone of Ulrike Gauss & Christofer Conrad for that purpose and satisfy your self completely, before pursuing a purchase.

 

 

 

 

Authenticating the Art of MARC CHAGALL

 

 

Here at the Freemanart Consultancy we have seen hundreds of fake Marc Chagall works of art over the years. From the usual run of the mill - claimed to be 'signed by Chagall' limited edition prints, which have had nothing to do with Marc Chagall what so ever, but which carry a forged or faked signature. Right through to impressive and cleverly executed fake Marc Chagall paintings on paper originating from Russia, the USA and Europe. So many fake prints in fact, that we no longer conduct investigations of this nature for clients.


Fake Chagall water colours, tempera and gouache works are a favourite fakers ploy at the moment, along with fake Chagall pastel works which are a commonplace product of the Chagall faker alongside counterfeit Chagall pen and ink drawings and fully fledged fake Marc Chagall oil paintings.

 

Serious art fraud is still being pursued by many individuals with illegitimate Marc Chagall works being passed off as legitimate Chagall's for business collateral. These are used to secure loans to entrepreneurs and banks, insurers and investment brokers, as well as to the general public, who seem to be all too eager to believe in a bargain buy.

 

A little research on the internet will point you to a myriad of horror stories, whereby even the best and most knowledgeable curators have been fooled by Marc Chagall fakes and other Chagall forgeries, with several noted fakers and fraudsters having openly admitted to their part in forgery scams when it comes to turning out fake Marc Chagall works of art.

 

Our About Fakes section covers this subject well

 

 

 

 

 

Authenticating  the Drawings and Paintings of MARC CHAGALL

 

 

 It has to be said that as far as we are concerned, as a professional art authentication agency specialising in identifying fakes and prosecuting art fraud for clients, the majority of fake Chagall drawings, fake Chagall watercolours and fake Chagall paintings which come our way for investigation, have done so all too frequently via our old friend Ebay and its friends, comparable auction sites, presenting works of art for sale on line.

Though it is becoming regularly evident that unscrupulous art dealers who have not shown any due diligence towards their clients, are also just as guilty as the un-policed internet sales bases, when it comes to trading in Fake Chagall art.

 It is clear also that low level auctioneers hiding behind "bought as seen" clauses, ie ; particularly estate sales, where fake works of art are knowingly planted by consignors, are also guilty of allowing fake Marc Chagall works of art onto the open market with far too regular abandon.

 

You should effect great caution before you commit to buy.

Far too late when the milk is spilt.

      

 

 

 

There are some patently obvious questions you should ask yourself before buying an Internet offered Chagall art work:

 

 

1: Why is it not being offered for sale through a major auction house where a guarantee of a high price from the top rollers is assured?

 

2: A simple question and one often missed by those dreaming of earning a fast buck.      "Is it good enough to be by Chagall ? "

 

3: Is this work of art accurately recorded in the Chagall catalogue raissone?  If not why not?

 

3: If it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, who signed it. What are their specific qualifications and are they internationally      recognised to be able to stand by the claim? The answer before you even ask yourself will undoubtedly be a NO they are not!

 

Such individuals making the claim are able to offer an opinion true, that is a humans right.

But just an opinion is NOT any form of guarantee of authenticity.

FAKE  AND FABRICATED  CHAGALL  PROVENACE 

Fake Chagall  Documentation, - Chagall Testimonials and Bogus Chagall Certificates of Authenticity.

 

 

 Remember, it is far easier for the fraudster to create and fabricate fake paperwork than it is to create the actual fake art work in the first place. So do not believe everything that you are told or read in the supporting documentation.

 

Provenance:

This is the physical history of the ownership and creation of the work of art. This must be absolutely provable and moreover traceable to have any degree of legitimacy, not just a list compiled by the seller.

If there is a line of decent indicated then check it thoroughly. Conjecture, Speculation and Assumption have no place in a work of art's Provenance.

You are in need of absolute water tight documentary evidence.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Duxbury

 

 

If you are presented with Chagall, Picasso or Matisse Provenance bearing an impressive looking English Coat of Arms proclaiming that the work was just one of a large number of works of art inherited from 'Daddy' who was a far travelled British Diplomat, one with a name sounding remarkably like       MUCKSBURY    then that's all it is.
A load of muck!

 

Our research and investigations into the family show that father, the well travelled art collecting international jet setter who knew every one from Picasso to Lassie, was in fact an English labourer not a diplomat! The coat of arms is a JPEG from an internet family coat of arms site pasted into Microsoft Word and the rest very neat lies. Ambiguous rubbish and a trap which can be taken any way that you want it to be taken.

If you believe it, then frankly its all your own fault.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bogus Chagall Certificates of Authenticity.

 You may also find a fake Chagall work of art supported by a Certificate of Authenticity provided by a so called self professed 'Authority of Signature Authentication from California.'
Whilst this man is perfectly entitled to proffer his opinion as to the authenticity of the signature, he is not a court appointed nor recognised Forensic Handwriting Analyst and his views are not accepted as the authority legitimising Chagall or anyone else in the art world. he has never written a book on the man, nor does he possess a Doctorate on the subject, he has never curated Chagall exhibitions, nor does he have a phone link to Marc Chagall himself in the etherial netherworld.

 

If you believe it, then frankly its all your own fault.

 

 

We would like to hear of any fake Chagall works of art, any fake provenances and any fake or ambiguous Certificates of Authenticity you may have come across. We are aware of at least one current and pending court case in the USA whereby such information would be very useful to the prosecutors. We shall be happy to pass such information on to them on your behalf.
