Investigating the Authenticity of Works of art believed to be by or attributed to

André Derain

(1880-1954)

FRENCH

 

 

 Vibrant colour used straight from the tube and overly simplified forms splashed with bold impasto brush strokes, were the chief characteristics of the paintings of Andre Derain.

A new and genius mix of Impressionism and Pointillism 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 colour and 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 embarrassment, some of the greatest and well respected 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 who are still plying their trade. Buying period, poor quality amateur canvasses is the starting point for the fakers, finding vintage paint next, which is not that difficult and making up a new painting that fits into a sequence of real works by that artist, must have been a piece of cake for the best of them.

 

 In recent years an ever growing number of paintings bearing the name André Derain have been placed in auctions and as the values of works of art by him consistently climb higher, there is an ever greater need for confirmation of legitimacy.

So it would follow, that any works of art that do surface will require both a comprehensive and thorough investigation of their backgrounds and their authenticity. With similar scrutiny made for confirmation that any previously given attribution is correct and that any description of a work of art seemingly by André Derain can truly be relied upon.

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.

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 quality 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
