Authenticating  and Attributing  the Art of

Antoine Bouvard Snr & Famile Bouvard Attelier

 

 

 

 

Antoine BOUVARD (1870-1956) aka Marc Aldine and “Pelletier”  -   Colette BOUVARD (1941-1996)  -    Noel Georges BOUVARD (1912-1975)

 

   Antoine Bouvard fell in love with Venice, its light and its architecture, that's obvious. He was a master at capturing it.

Well taught by his mentor, Ruben Santoro and choosing his target market well for his Italian compositions, the commercial side of him took over and he stuck to it all his life.

 Antoine Bouvard was first and foremost an architect but also a talented French artist and painter. For many in fact, he was the most highly regarded artist amongst the Venetian genre at the time.  Also the mentor and tutor to both of his artist children; Noel Bouvard and Colette Bouvard. 

They, with their father's commercial eye for an art market still eager to buy Venetian scenes, painted not only in the same manner as Antoine Bouvard senior, but even used pretty well the same compositions and recorded the same places. Much the same as Cortes was doing in Paris. The only discernible difference to the normal man in the street between father and siblings, being a  measure of quality that most wouldn't spot

 But even Antoine Bouvard Senior varied the quality of his painting too. Urged on by the owner of a Nice gallery to paint more and more of the same types of Venetian landscapes, mainly canals and back waters, but less expensively, aimed this time at a different niche market.

So under the pseudonym of Marc Aldine, more and more works came along from the very busy Bouvard studio.

 Its a complicated puzzle as Eloi Noel Bouvard and Marc Aldine are both different pseudonyms of the French artist Eloi Noel Beraud.

That's also Antoine Bouvard senior by birth, if you still follow me?

 So the tourists on the Grand Tour of Europe were a profitable market for Bouvard when they visited Venice and they in turn, over time passed on, their houses were cleared and onto the market came the Bouvard souvenirs they once bought. Now a very respectable collectible investment indeed.

 

  In 2011 at Christies Auctions in London, 2 paintings by Noel Georges Bouvard - called Gondoliers before the Rialto bridge and a sister work, came under the hammer with an estimate of £4,000 each. Realising in GBP £25,000.00 !

 For many years from the 1970's on, you could buy a respectable Bouvard for a thousand GBP or even less, but even back then I remember seeing many substandard works, including obvious fakes and plenty of copies bearing the famous Bouvard name, hanging on the walls of, shall we say, 'less responsible' provincial art auction sale rooms.

 So we have a conundrum for Bouvard buyers, Bouvard collectors and just plain lovers of Venice cityscape works. Remember they ALL signed with just the surname! So the question is, do you have a legitimate painting by Antoine Bouvard, a painting by Noel Georges Bouvard, a painting by Colette Bouvard, or a work by someone painting in their style with an added signature to attract and deceive a buyer? And have you been?

Fine Art Authentication

 

 The duration and the direction of any authenticity investigation or an attribution of a work of art will inevitably vary from project to project. But there are clear and very well defined professional formalities, responsibilities and areas of scrutiny that we can formally assist you with, including:

 

  • Authentication: Authentification:  Conducting comprehensive investigations and in depth research into a work of art with a view to establishing a correct, complete and formally recognized certification. One absolutely upheld by the appropriate, legally acknowledged and internationally sanctioned authority, body or expert on that given artist. Directing detailed and complicated inquiries, with multilingual capability, including any international academic research and forensic applications that are required.

 

  •  Attribution: Identifying and confirming the identity of a previously anonymous artist, studio or workshop from which a work of art most likely originated. Including the re-examination and investigation of a previous attribution which may be incorrect, or the scrutiny of an attribution that has been formally questioned or is currently doubted.

 

  •  Confirmation:  Undertaking research and investigations into the legitimacy of the provenance, history and prior ownership of a work of art and establishing its accuracy and legitimacy.

  •  Scrutiny: Examen minutieux:Identifying fake or faux works of art and forgeries, including any false supportive accompanying documentation and determining works of art which may be studio or later copies, or previously given incorrect attributions.

  •  Prosecution: Poursuite: Investigating alleged art fraud and forgery and assisting and advising those who are currently , or may be considering litigating or prosecuting the fact. This includes colleagues who are legal professionals and individual private clients.

  •  Attention: Conducting all fine art related due diligence and duty of care inquiries. Including safe prepurchase or sale related audits and assisting clients in consolidating a well balanced future family distribution.

 

  •  Appraisal: Évaluation - Valuations and condition reports.

 

 

 

 

BOUVARD: Step one in the Art Authentication and Attribution process.

The Pre-Authentication Assessment

 

    Before you begin any authenticity, legitimacy, or artist attribution investigation, it is wise to have an impartial preliminary assessment of the viability of the project conducted first. One made to independently and rationally balance any negative issues there may be against the positive. You should treat this study as a safety net.

 We will be happy to professionally undertake this for you, based upon good quaity images that you supply and all the known facts regarding its acquisition, the history and provenance of the work of art as is known to you.

You will then have a far better understanding of the prospects and indeed the possible pitfalls that could lie ahead.

See our FAQ's for details of the process
