We specialise in conducting investigations and archival research into the authenticity of works of art internationally.

 

 

 

 

STEP ONE - THE PRELIMINARY ASSESMENT OF VIABILITY STUDY

 

    We recommend that before entering into a full investigation of legitimacy or possible attribution of any work of art believed to be by Aivazovsky, it is essential to consider the issue of viability.

 

So we prefer to undertake a preliminary professional pre-authentication assessment of the work in question for clients first. A professional study based upon the images you supply, the full details of the work of arts history and provenance as is known to you and any previous research or analysis that you may have formerly conducted on it.

It is an unbiased study, aiming to consider any negative issues that are immediately recognisable, the future requirements necessary and balance the risks involved in pursuing authenticity. 

A logical and cost effective professional assessment for which there is a modest set fee.

You will then be in a far better position to judge if the project is actually worth undertaking.

 

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

 Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky (July 17, 1817 – April 19 1900) was an extremely famous Armenian-Russian marine painter and artist specialising in seascape, landscape and portrait paintings.

 Aivazovsky became hugely popular in his lifetime and much like England's famed artist J. M. W. Turner, was to begin a fashionably new and fresh style and interest in art, which fired an incredible artistic fad in its own right.

He was originally not so much faked as an artist, but emulated for both artistic applause and recognition but obvious commercial reasons.

Only latterly have the art world's fakers and fraudsters jumped on the Aivazovsky band wagon and started to produce 'new' long lost Aivazovsky paintings, with many more works that were similar in style, age and subject, but painted by unknown hands, magically developing brand new signatures!

Notably he was the first painter in a Russian art Auction sale to break the £1 million barrier. Now few make less and there is the problem.

 

 Another issue with authentication, particularly when so many artists painted in the same manner, are earlier mistakes made by art experts. Which manifest themselves as incorrect attributions many of which are unsoundly based upon opinion alone and with little attention to securing and hard evidence and fact to support the notion.

A huge number of seascapes were painted in the 'style of Aivazovsky' though in the 19th century, many of which have been sold, passed off in contemporary markets as the master's own originals.

His beautiful dream like landscapes are captivating  as are rare recordings of places and views bathed in dramatic sun and moon light.

 

 

 

 Aivazovsky was an incredibly prolific artist. Which is probably why we do not currently have a full catalogue of his works of art as yet. What is a fact though is that the world's art historians still don't agree on whatever the huge number of paintings he produced in his lifetime actually is ! That could be anywhere from 6,000 to 15,000 some say.
