  Of all the most renown British artists who have ever had cause to hold a paintbrush, the English romanticist painter and landscape artist, Joseph Mallord William Turner,

(1775 – 1851) is a name which appears more often than Picasso, Corot, Matisse and Chagall, on the Freemanart authenticity and attribution research and investigation schedule.


  This is not unexpected, as our Executive Director's personal long standing interest and professional expertise lies in the art of  J. M. W. Turner and his contemporaries.

In that capacity he has worked all over the world investigating the legitimacy of would be Turner works, identifying many fakes and investigating Turner art frauds.

So take some sound and logical professional advice before you decide to commit to any full scale Turner art authentication investigation process.

Authentication of the art of British Artist,

Joseph Mallord William Turner.

 Joseph Mallord William Turner, R.A., was in his time, one of the most emulated artists in the world. He created in his day, a huge popularity following, including stimulating a vast number of imitators and encouraging many professional rivals.

So with artist attributions, it is essential to examine this issue fully, first and foremost.

Is it by Turner, could it be by him or is it just someone trying to be like him?

 

  With that in mind, we suggest that before entering into a full scale investigation of the legitimacy of a work of art which you believe may possibly be by the British artist J. M. W. Turner, be it a purely an academic study, in depth archival research, or full forensic analysis and provenance scrutiny, or as with most cases, all these areas of scrutiny, it is essential to learn if the project is viable and more importantly, actually possible and provable in the final analysis.  Which is exactly what you must accomplish and establish evidentially.

This is much the same sort of scenario as if you were considering taking a legal case to court and getting advise from your lawyer before you commit.

 At this level, international mainstream society demands the assertion of an attribution absolutely.  So, there is no place here then for unsupported hypothesis, rash assumption, wild supposition, or opinion alone. It can always be challenged.

 To judge this tricky issue of viability in every fine art authentication enquiry, we prefer to make a preliminary and vital independent, professional pre authentication assessment for clients first. One based upon the images you supply and the full details of the work and all of its history that you have available.


Logically, if it is not realistic, you should not attempt it. The risk of failure and financial loss is far too high.
This procedure then is a logical and cost effective professional assessment and advisory service for which there is a modest set fee.

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

 

 

 

A gentle word of caution:

 

 Expert authentication research cannot be conducted from behind a desk, far away from where the artists archives are maintained. Nor can it be solely reliant upon the Internet for answers. This is entirely why we work in the UK where we have both the access and the expertise to conduct the necessary in depth research, thoroughly and efficiently for you.

 

J. M. W. Turner.  (A Profile)

 

    Turner was a man who was a true maestro in the realms of art history.

 The British painter of light' Joseph Mallord William Turner, produced countless exquisite works of art on paper in watercolour and landscape oil paintings, each well ahead of his time. Even as far back as the late 1700's. Indeed, Turner was simply the first true impressionist painter, but around a full century before its birth.

 As a child artist Turner was superlative and at the age of only 25 he was exhibiting magnificent watercolours at the Royal Academy. And by 1793 the Royal Society of Arts awarded him its 'Greater Silver Pallet' award for landscape drawing.

 Unrivalled in colourful and atmospheric excellence, his life's work of paintings included seascapes, landscapes, architecture, industry, transport and portraiture.

 

 

 Though the majority of his works are exceptionally well documented and catalogued,  but some do surface from time to time. Though where they have been for 200 years or more, no one quite knows ?

 

 To be fair however, seldom, if ever, do we investigate the authenticity of oil paintings attributed to J M W Turner of this magnitude. Like the oil painting by J M W Turner of Anglers fishing on the river Dee (above) or of Lake Lucerne on the right. Turner's masterpieces are all by now, (barring a miracle,) tucked away in museums and galleries around the world.


What we do see however are claimed to be, lesser Turner works. Such as J M W Turner oil sketches, signed and unsigned Turner drawings and small paintings and watercolours which clients feel may have slipped through the net of time.

 

 Remember, J M W Turner was revered as an artist in England and in his time commanded high prices for his paintings. So much so that art forgery and fake Turner paintings were commonplace even back then, with Turner himself spending large amounts of money in prosecuting art fraud and suing imposters of his published works and prints, in order to protect both his own copyrights and his integrity.

It stands to reason therefore that many illicit works of art, both Turner watercolours and oil paintings purporting to be by the hand of J M W Turner and from that very time frame, probably still exist. And we see them all the time.

 

 For any art authentication investigation specialists or researchers, the problem in identifying authentic works by J M W Turner, is the disparity of quality between works of the same subject, like the second picture below which is also 'Anglers fishing on the river Dee.'

Then there are those legitimate works which have survived from even earlier Turner times.

 The Freemanart Consultancy specialise in conducting and implementing art authentication investigations, expertly preparing the cases 'for' authenticity or 'against' authenticity for private individuals and corporate clients across the world.

These may be clients who may be considering the delicate matter of future family distribution, or for those requiring the underpinning of authentication prior to an investment purchase, or for the brokerage of an existing piece. Alternately, for those in opposition, taking legal step, prosecuting or litigating against an art fraud or misdescription.

 

 

 

 

 

  We employ mainly nondestructive forensic methodology in investigative support of the authentication of all art works including; Spectrographic & Raman technology, examination and testing plus macroscopic & microscopic forensic analysis. Science therefore very effectively assists us in identifying and dating pigments, inks and artist materials but without any adverse effect on the work of art. So too, our expert court recognized handwriting and document examiners play a vital role in the authentication of art process.

 Freemanart's forensic experts also conduct expert chemical analysis and fibre identification processes which reinforces the investigation procedure in the identification of fake drawings & paintings, signature forgery identification & art and supportive document  fraud, such as illicit and fake provenance, forged letters, wills and sales receipts.
