Renoir & Authentication - Before you begin


* Before entering into a full investigation of the legitimacy of a work of art possibly by Renoir, be it academic, forensic or as with most cases, both, it is essential to know if the project is viable and 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 attempt it, as the risk of failure is too high.

So we always prefer to make a preliminary and vital professional pre authentication assessment for clients first. This is based upon the images you supply, the details and the items full history.

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

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






Investigating  &   Authenticating  the  Art  of   Pierre - Auguste  Renoir


 Many of the Renoir impressionist fakes we see at Freemanart (and we see a lot) are actually copies of original Renoir paintings and drawings or in some cases, proportionate parts of them.


 However, deliberate forgeries, in the guise of Pierre Renoir painting and drawing fakes are oftentimes compilations  of other known Renoir works, a favourite ploy of both the modern day forger and historical faker of art work .

This newly created Renoir fake work of art then magically becomes an 'unknown' or 'forgotten' lost Renoir painting, whereby the faker has taken images or elements from within other works of art known to be by Renoir or any other artist they intend to counterfeit and then cleverly introduces and manipulates those elements into a brand new composition or work of art purportedly to be by that artist.

This process is always designed to deceive and defraud the individual and it's money and money alone which is the catalyst in the crime.


 Another favourite scam with Renoir fakes and forgeries is to use an image taken from within one of Renoir's known legitimate works of art and invent new studies in paint or crayon, or sometimes pastel to make us believe that this is a previously undiscovered Renoir study which has recently come to light. This is much more believable than a fully fledged masterpiece suddenly turning up, and my word, there's a lot of them floating around!

 There are many well known forgers of Pierre Renoir including Britain's Tom Keating, the notorious Elmer de Hory and the German artist Edgar Mrugalla, whose 'Bathers by Renoir' is shown below to illustrate just how adept and talented the Renoir art faker can be. Perhaps it's just a little too bright though to be areal Renoir but clever enough to convince or deceive an unsuspecting buyer!

Pierre  Auguste Renoir of course did not only paint figurative studies & portraits, his still lives and landscapes too are often fabricated, as this fake Renoir landscape (left) which appeared for sale on Ebay recently testifies!   It really is a poor effort though isn't it.



We are currently working on investigations of two Renoir works. One for legal clients in Canada is now complete the others for a private individuals & collector in the USA
