Expert Authentication Investigations into Paintings & Drawings: Franz Josef Kline

 

 

  Franz Kline was an American painter from Pennsylvania and is best known for his black and white Abstract Expressionist art painted in the 1940s and 1950s. Yet many forget, he started painting in a realistic manner before developing his own 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.

 To the right is one well documented  painting  simply called untitled and believed to be a Kline fake. It's one that fooled the experts which 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 purporting to be by Franz Kline.

 Another well known fraud case concerning faked provenance documents, saw 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.

 So the question remains. Is it a real Franz Kline picture that you have tucked away under the bed? One that your great uncle swore was real? Or is it another artist attribution mistake made by the experts who thought it really was a Franz Kline original. Or is it something that's just painted in the Franz Kline style?

 The problem is, it could always actually be a down and out fake Franz Kline painting that you have and undoubtedly there are lots still out there. Or perhaps it's just another innocent copy of one of Franz Kline's pictures painted by someone else?  Perhaps by a student of the arts, or just an amateur painter who's trying to paint like him.

But copies of any paintings do not constitute a forgery. You can see that by the number of far eastern copycat studios producing reproductions of any artists work that exist to decorate lounge and office walls. 

It only becomes an illegal issue if paintings like these reproductions are falsely passed off as a legitimate works of art created by artists like Franz Kline. This is usually to an unknowing purchaser and its then that it becomes a serious art fraud. 

That's if the buyer knows he's been taken?

 

 Well you won't know till you do know what you have and you can't do that from behind a desk somewhere and certainly not by looking in a book or trawling the internet till late into the night.

 

 So take advise from those who specialise in international fine art authentication investigations and in depth archival research.

Fine Art investigators with a vast amount of experience and do so well before you start investing a lot of money on what could turn out to be a nightmare.

 

 Before entering into a full investigation of the legitimacy of a work of art you believe may be by Franz Kline, be it simply academic, forensic or as with most cases, both areas of legitimacy investigation, it is essential to know if the project is at all viable in the long term and more importantly, possibly provable as such. It's much the same as you would need to know if you were taking a legal case to court and getting the advise of your solicitor beforehand.

Logically, if it is unviable to do so, 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 both old and modern master fine art investigations behind us, we prefer to make a preliminary and vital professional pre authentication assessment for clients first.

This is a study 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 should know exactly where you stand.

 

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