The Authentication & Attribution of the art, Paintings & Drawings of

André Derain

 

"We were always intoxicated with color, with words that speak of colour and with the sun that makes colours live."
(Andre Derain)

 

 

 

Vibrant colour used straight from the tube and overly simplified forms splashed with bold impasto brush strokes, were the chief charecteristics of the paintings of Andre Derain. A new and genius mix of Impressionism and Pointilism were the Fauvists of the early 20th century, concentrating their efforts in the main on French landscapes, seascapes, nudes of course and typical French interiors.

Derain famously said;" We were always intoxicated with colour, with words that speak of colourand with the sun that makes the colours live

But they were all too easily faked.

 One illicit gang of German art forgers made millions out their of fakes in recent years and even duped, not without great embarrasment, some of the greatest and well respoected auction houses there are.

The case of Wolfgang Beltracchi is well documented and does not need to be repeated here, but for all the forgers that are now tucked away in jail, there must be dozens which are still plying their trade. Buying period poor quality amateur canvasses is the starting point for the fakers, finding vintage paint is not that difficult and making up a new painting that fits into a sequence of real works by the artist, must have been a piece of cake for the best.

 So is it a real André Derain painting you have tucked away in the closet or under the bed that Grandpa swore was real ? Or is it just another sorry mistake made by the experts who thought it was a André Derain masterpiece that got away? Art experts who got it very wrong by today's standards and something just painted in his manner? Deliberately or not!

      

  Left above, Boats Port of Collioure, not by Andre Derain and a real on by the man to its right!

 

 The other side of the coin...the one you have could always actually be a down and out fake Derain you know, there are lots out there.

Today they emerge from the shadows as one coming from a long lost collection which suddenly is rediscovered . Or perhaps it's just an innocent amateur copy, or a replica of one of her pictures done by somone else.

 

So take advise from those experts who specialise in all Old and Modern Master art authentication investigations and archival research before you start investing a lot of money on what could be a wild goose chase.

 

 Before entering into a full investigation of the legitimacy of a work of art you believe may be by Berthe Morisot, be it simply academic, forensic or as with most cases, both, it is essential to know if the project is at all viable in the long term and more importantly, 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 even attempt it, as the risk of failure is too high.

 So at the Freemanart Consultancy, with 43 years of international experience in fine art authentication investigations under our belt, we always prefer to make a preliminary and vital professional pre authentication assessment for clients first. This is based upon the images you supply and the full details and the work of art's history and provenance.

This is a logical and cost effective professional assessment and advisory for which there is a modest set fee. Then you'll know exactly where you stand.

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