Investigating the Authenticity and Attribution of Paintings and Drawings believed to be by or Attributed to;

Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci

Known as Leonardo da Vinci

Leonardeschi - Studio and Workshop

(Italy, France, 1452 - 1519)

 

 

 Considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time, Leonardo da Vinci was trained under the renowned Italian painter Andrea del Verrocchio in Florence, becoming a studio boy at 14 years of age and his attelier apprentice at 17.

There is no need to create a biography of da Vinci here, he is renown for his Mona Lisa and the Last Supper and others have eloquently recorded his life, but barely 20 paintings by da Vinci are known to have survived and the words disputed and challenged appear regularly with many da Vinci attributions.

 You may think it a little odd, far fetched even, that in today's world, drawings and paintings believed to be by the Venetian grand master Leonardo da Vinci are brought to our attention for scrutiny and the investigation of their legitimacy, or indeed the accuracy of a previous attribution to Leonardo, but indeed they do.

It's hardly surprising when the painting Salvator Mundi, dated to about 1500 and once presumed lost and unrivalled in value, was sold for a world record $450.3 million at a Christie's in New York in 2017. The highest price ever paid for a work of art.

 There are many disputed paintings also attributed to da Vinci and an even longer list of mislaid or destroyed works.

 Only two years ago we were engaged at the heart of a major investigation into a 'newly discovered' yet controvertial portrait that was being offered for sale as an original da Vinci to prospective clients in western Europe.

Suffice as to say, the provenance was manufactured, its expertise well paid for and its presentation, shall we say...dubious....

 Today, facsimile reproductions of the drawings of da Vinci are a serious problem and are often confused with the real thing.

Seemingly the older they are, the more convincing they become.

 

 

Leonardo's last painting is Saint John the Baptist,

an oil on wood, completed in about 1515. Louvre

 

St John the Baptist. After Leonardo da Vinci,

possibly by a Milanese follower

The Last Supper. Oil on panel Sold for $1,250

 

 

Attributed to Leonardo Da Vinci. Drawing. Ink/Paper. With Possible Initial/Monogram in lower right portionof image. $14,750.00

 Leonardo da Vinci’s Madonna of the Yarnwinder is depicted above, but the attribution to Leonardo still remains somewhat controversial. The Lansdowne Madonna 1501 and the Buccleuch Madonna are both oil on panel. Novella’s first-hand account of Da Vinci from the time, confirms that studio assistants and apprentices were copying from da Vinci with da Vinci himself adding to parts of the newly painted compositions.



Head study of a young man. Red and black chalk. Probably a Florentine artist who was under the strong influence of Leonardo. It may be the study of an angel or St. Johannes.

Step one in the Art Authentication and Attribution process.

The Pre-Authentication Assessment

 Before you begin any art authenticity, legitimacy, or any artist attribution investigation, it is more than 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 elements. Treat it as your safety net.

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

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

ABOUT AUCTION HOUSE DESCRIPTORS

 

 It is important to understand the auction terms used in any published descriptor and be cautious of works that may be painted in the style of the artist or even copies of his works which bear a signature. In this case Leonardo.

Leonardo Da Vinci ; Given the first name/s and surname of the artist. In their opinion it is the genuine authentic item, painted by the artist.

Leonardo Da Vinci ; Described as “Attributed to ….” That in their opinion it is 'probably' a work by the artist, at least in part.


Leonardo Da Vinci ; “Studio of ….” or “Workshop of” or "attelier" In their opinion it is a work executed in the studio or workshop of the artist. Possibly by an apprentice or pupil under the principal artists supervision.


Leonardo Da Vinci ; “Circle of ….” In their opinion it is a work of the period of the artist and showing his influence, or closely associated with the artist but not necessarily by his pupil.


Leonardo Da Vinci ; In the “Style of ….” or “Follower of ….” In their opinion it is a work of art executed in the artist’s style, but not necessarily by a pupil. But it may be contemporary, or nearly contemporary.

Leonardo Da Vinci ; “Manner of ….” In their opinion it's a work in the style of the artist but of a later date and definitely not by the artist.

Leonardo Da Vinci ; “After ….” In their opinion it is a copy (made at any date) of an authentic and original work by the artist.

Leonardo Da Vinci ; “Signed…”, “Dated….” or “Inscribed” In their opinion the work has been signed/dated/or inscribed by that specific artist. The addition of a question mark indicates an element of doubt.

Leonardo Da Vinci ; "With signature ….”, “With date ….” or “With inscription….” or “Bears signature/date/inscription” Then in their opinion the signature / date / or inscription is spurious, forged or has been added by someone else other than the artist.
