Investigating the Authenticity of Works of art believed to be by or Attributed to:

Franz Josef Kline

Franz Kline

(May 23, 1910 – May 13, 1962)

American Abstract Expressionist Artist

 

 

  Franz Kline was an American painter from Pennsylvania, best known for his black and white Abstract Expressionist art created in the 1940s and 1950s. Though many may forget that he started painting in a realistic manner years before developing his own unique abstract style.

But when you study the art of Franz Kline, you can see how easy it is to pass off fake works created in this manner to unknowing individuals.

 Below is one well documented painting simply called 'Untitled' and believed to be a Kline fake. It's one that actually completely fooled the Kline experts & which finally ended up in the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City.

 

 

 In 2011 the FBI investigated dozens of paintings worth millions of dollars each which emanated from New York city and which were sold to elite purchasers, including several works that were purporting to be by Franz Kline. Another well known art fraud case concerning faked provenance documents, saw Franz Kline fakes being passed off as recently discovered, legitimate works of art, but not yet in the catalogue raissone on Franz Kline. The scam was simple, consigning claimed to be Kline art works through regional auctioneers across the United States and even Europe.

 Works of art that do surface will require both a comprehensive and thorough investigation of their backgrounds and provenance and similar scrutiny given to confirm that any previously given attribution is correct. So too that any description itself of a work of art seemingly by Franz Kline can truly be relied upon.

 With such very high values of his paintings prevailing in the art market and the wide demand even for even modest works, then attempts at imitation by forgery and at different levels, from the excellent fakes to the patently foolish, is an obvious but sad consequence.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step one in the Art Authentication and Attribution process

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

ABOUT A WORK OF ART DESCRIPTOR AND ITS TERMINOLOGY

 

  *It is important to very clearly understand the auction terms that are used in any published descriptor and to be cautious of works that may just be created in the manner of the artist, or those which could be variants of the artists works of art that bear a signature or monogram. In this case as if they were defining the creations of the American artist Franz Josef Kline1910–1962.

 

  •  Where the name, Franz Kline 1910–1962 is given with the first name/s and surname of the artist, usually cited as Franz Kline 1910–1962 including his dates, then in their qualified and professional opinion they are in no doubt. It is a genuine and authentic item and one painted by that artist. This is usually fully qualified by its inclusion in any catalogue raissone, or by the guarantee of the opinion given by the appropriate and internationally recognized expert authority on the artist.

 

  •  When Attributed to Franz Kline 1910–1962 is used, or it is similarly defined as 'Attrib. to ' [abbreviated,] or Attribué à, or ascribed to, then in their opinion it is 'probably' a work by the artist, at least in part. But... there is no guarantee. It is only an opinion.

 

  •  But if the term Franz Kline - circle of, or “Circle of Franz Kline ” is specifically used, then in their opinion, it is a work only of the period of the artist, but showing their influence. Or by someone closely associated with the artist, BUT not necessarily by their pupil or student.

 

  •  When the name is given thus; Painted in the “Style of Franz Kline ” or “Follower of Franz Kline is used, this means that in their opinion it is a work of art executed only in the artist’s way, their 'style', but not necessarily by a pupil. Yet it may be a contemporary, or nearly a contemporary of the artist.

 

  •  If the phrase in the “Manner of Franz Kline is used or is defined….” then in their opinion it is also only a work painted in the style of the artist, but of a later date and definitely not by the artist as named.

 

  •  When the term “After….Franz Kline "; is the term used, then in their opinion it is a copy (made at any date) of an authentic and original work by the artist. This also applies to prints made 'after' an original work of art either by the artist or another artist/ printmaker.

 

  •  Signed - Franz Kline ; “Dated….” or “Inscribed Franz Kline ” Then in their opinion the work has been signed/dated/or inscribed by that specific artist. The addition of a question mark ? however, indicates a strong element of doubt.

 

  •  When the term 'bears signature', is used or the name, Franz Kline is specified followed by the words; "With signature ….”, or “With date ….” or “With inscription….” or “Bears signature of Franz Kline /date/or inscription” Then in 'their opinion,' either the signature / date / or inscription is spurious, forged or has been added by someone else other than the artist.
