Authenticating  the Art of Antoine Bouvard

 

STEP ONE - THE PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENT OF VIABILITY STUDY

 

 

    We recommend prior to entering into a full investigation of legitimacy or attribution of a work of art, it is essential to consider any issues of viability there may be.

 

So with that in mind, we prefer to undertake a preliminary professional pre-authentication assessment of the work of art for clients first.

A professional assessment based upon the images you supply, the full details of the work of arts acquisition, its previous history and provenance as is known to you and any research that you may have formerly conducted on it.

It is an impartial, logical and cost effective review, made to balance both the positive and negative issues for which there is a modest set fee.

You will then be in a far better position to decide.

 

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

ABOUT THE BOUVARDS

 

Antoine BOUVARD (1870-1956) (aka Marc Aldine)   -   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 £ 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 Bouvard's 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?
