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

Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo y Calderón

 Frida Kahlo

1907–1954

Mexican

 

"My paintings carry with them the message of pain"

 

 

 Frida Kahlo's vivid surrealist and always symbolic self-portraits, have given rise to her being described as one of the world's most distinctive and prolific artists. But Frida Kahlo is also Mexico's most famous woman painter and easily the most expensive artist that Latin America has ever produced. Yet with that high level of success comes notoriety and her art is rapidly becoming some of the most faked art in the world.

 In recent years, an ever growing number of works of art including paintings bearing the name Frida Kahlo have been consigned for sale in auctions around the world and as the values of her works of art consistently climb, there is a greater need for the confirmation of legitimacy.

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 Frida Kahlo can truly be relied upon.

 With such very high values of her 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. 

 Simple ploys adopted by those intending to deceive, is to add a signature or monogram to an otherwise anonymous work of art, of a similar subject or style that of an artist. Often we see applied forged studio or collector stamps, a new and persuasive inscription, or an added gallery label on the back of a picture and the work itself and need only to be one of a vaguely similar type to that of the artist that is claiming to be by for it to be passed off as legitimate. Bogus provenance and even faked supportive documentation is not unusual.
Signature addition, therefore, is the most common form of criminal deception that we see and in the world of art, it's been going on for centuries.

 We are international fine art consultants and investigators with bases in the UK and Europe, specialising in conducting full investigations into the authenticity of works of art created by artists in all categories, regions and historical eras. We scrutinize and track provenance and have been confidentially serving and advising both private individuals and corporate clients from around the world for over 45 years.

 We can assist and advise you in all fine art related matters, particularly issues of authenticity and the attribution of any old or modern master works of art, including the works of Frida Kahlo, her circle, studio, or followers, or any works of art that you are unsure about.

 Some example works of art appear below as illustrations below. Note: No inference is made nor is it intended as to the question of their legitimacy. Moreover they are an across the board representational view of the differing types of works that are and may be offered and advertised for sale at auction internationally.

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.
