Art Authentication: Conducting investigations into the authenticity and legitimacy of international fine art for Canadian clients.

Including all Old & Modern Masters, artists, time periods and genres.

 

 The Freemanart Consultancy's vast international experience in processing art authentication and attribution investigations of fine art for Canadians, naturally includes Canadian art but all other genres, artists and centuries too. From Medieval times up to the present day.

 With so many fakes appearing across Canada, claiming to be by Norval Morrisseau or Maud Lewis, Cornelius Krieghoff to all of the Group of Seven, and goodness knows how many more, it is not surprising that Canadians need the confidence of a work of art's authenticity underwriting and the myth that was handed down in the family, either proving, or finally busting for once and for all.

 For over 42 years we have been conducting professional academic and forensic investigations into the authenticity or otherwise of works of art for Canadian clients, but not only in Canada but around the world.

As such, we are a unique expert team specialising in international fine art authentication assignments which have fallen into clearly defined responsibilities, services & categories:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Authentication: Investigating and establishing the fully, internationally accepted, proven and correctly underpinned certification of a work of art. Including those with a specific signatorial claim, with an earlier expert qualification of legitimacy or those that have none. Generally requiring international academic, archival research and forensic applications and thorough in depth investigations.

  • Attribution: Identifying and confirming the anonymous artist, studio or workshop from which a work of art may have first originated. One which may not have been previously known or formerly identified

  • Confirmation: Conducting the archival research required in investigating and confirming the provenance, lineage and prior history of ownership of a work of art.

  • Revision: Re-examining & investigating an erstwhile previously ascribed historical artist's attribution which is incorrect. One otherwise doubted, or has been formally challenged.


  • Scrutiny:  Identifying deliberate fakes and forgeries and determining those which may be studio or later student copies, or previously misrepresented or wrongful attributions.


  • Prosecution: Investigating alleged art fraud and forgery and assisting and advising those prosecuting the fact. Criminal and legal.

 

  • Attention: Conducting all art related due diligence and duty of care enquiries, prepurchase, or sale related studies and assisting in matters of consolidating future family distribution.

 

Simply put, we are here to help in all fine art related matters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  Renown internationally as leading experts in our field, the Freemanart Consultancy confidentially conduct all of the investigative academic studies and forensic processes required in the process of fine art authentication.

Expert in-depth academic study, international archival research and forensic analysis, alongside comprehensive research into the background, history and provenance of the work of art.

 

 Our clear intent is to pursue and establish a flawless case for clients. One which can lead us to the ultimate & accurate confirmation of an attribution and one that is both internationally recognised and unanimously accepted. 

 

 

There is no half measure and you would not expert less.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  We are proud to serve clients from both the Private and Corporate sector in British Columbia and throughout Canada.

 

  International Law firms, Government Departments, Principal, National, Regional, Municipal and Corporate Art Galleries and Collections.

The Art Authentication Process  -  Before you begin

 

 

 Before entering into a full investigation of the legitimacy, authenticity or attribution of any work of art, be it academic, forensic or as with most cases, both, it is essential to know if the project is viable enough to justify that pursuit and in the final analysis, that it may be provable? Because in today's world, prove it you must.

And that evidence has to be sought and found wherever it may lie. 

Treat such an important issue as authentication as needing to know what chances you have if you were taking a legal case to court.

Logically, if it is not worth it, or if it's too risky and shot full of holes from the start, (or you're about to fall down one,) you should not attempt it.  Clearly, the risk of failure is far too high.

 

 So before you start, Freemanart always prefer to conduct a preliminary and vital professional pre authentication assessment for clients first.   A well reasoned, independent assessment based upon your images, the full known details and the items history.

It is a vitally important study that allows for a balanced rational measure of the risks and requirements that lie ahead.

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

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