Investigating the Authenticity of Paintings and art works believed to be by or Attributed to;


Louis Valtat

1869-1952

French

Post-Impressionistic Fauvism artist - landscape, figure and genre painter.

 

 

 The great French art collector and noted dealer Ambroise Vollard considered Louis Valtat as one of the most exciting painters working in Paris at the turn of the 20th century. And on the advice of Pierre Renoir, Vollard made an agreement with Valtat to purchase almost all of his paintings for the first decade of the 20th century.

 His subjects, vibrancy and certainly his flair and style was exceedingly popular in France and he was imitated both by his followers, certainly those artists in his direct circle of influence and those individuals in more modern times with a more nefarious intent.

 Clearly there is no need at all for another biography of the life of Louis Valtat here. This has been very well documented by other commentators. However, inevitably, because of his stature and following and certainly the values of works of art available today, the artist was imitated.

 Adding a signature to a painting either by deletion of a previous one, or the addition of one to a previously unsigned work, is a common place fraud and any attempt at such imitation is clearly a deception. Today, paintings are deliberately faked, or more commonly, misrepresented or misattributed to this hand. That can be either mistakenly or deliberately and have been made at any time in the present or past.
  It must be said, that some of the Louis Valtat works that do surface will need very serious thought and investigation to be absolutely certain of both their legitimacy or that a previously given attribution, the past history associated with it, or that the description is sound and can truly be relied upon.

 We are international fine art consultants, authenticity investigators specialising in conducting full investigations into the authenticity of works of art created by artists in all categories, in all regions and from historical eras. We fully scrutinize and track provenance,

confidentially serving 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 authentication, legitimacy and the attribution of old and modern master works of art. Including the fine works of Louis Valtat, his circle and followers, or any paintings or works of art that you are unsure about.

 Some examples of works signed with that name appear below.  No inference or question is made as to their authenticity, moreover they are a cross the board representational view of the types of works offered for sale at auction internationally, some of which will need to be understood and sometimes specifically need to be fully qualified and authenticated.

 FINE ART AND AUTHENTICITY:

 

 

  Both the duration and direction of any attribution or investigation into the authenticity 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 and directing comprehensive investigations and in depth research, with a view to establishing a correct, complete and formally recognized certification of a work of art.

One that is absolutely upheld by the appropriate, legally acknowledged and internationally sanctioned authority, body or expert on that given artist. By directing detailed and often complicated inquiries, with multilingual capability, full international academic research and any 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, quality and condition reports.

 

 

 

 

 

Step one in the Art Authentication and Attribution process.

The Pre-Authentication Assessment.

 

    Before you begin any art 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 elements. You should treat this study as your initial safety net.

 We will be happy to professionally undertake this for you, based upon good quaity 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 pitfalls that could lie ahead.

ABOUT PAINTING DESCRIPTORS AND AUCTION TERMINOLOGY

Louis Valtat

 

 

    It is important to clearly understand auction terms that are used in any published descriptor, in order to be cautious of works that may just be painted in the manner of the artist, or even the stylized - would be copies of his works which bear a signature or monogram.

In this case if they were defining the paintings and drawings of the French artist Louis Valtat :

 

 Where the name, Louis Valtat is given with the first name/s and surname of the artist, usually cited as Louis Valtat, then in their qualified and professional opinion they are in no doubt, it is the genuine and authentic item, one painted by the artist himself.

 When Attributed to Louis Valtat, or Louis Valtat is similarly written or used as ascribed to or Attrib, [abbreviated,] 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.

 When Louis Valtat; “School of, or Studio of ….” or “Workshop of Louis Valtat " or attelier of Louis Valtat " is used, this means that in their opinion it is a work executed in the studio of the artist. Possibly by an apprentice or a pupil under the principal artists supervision and guidance.

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

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

 If the phrase in the “Manner of Louis Valtat 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 himself.

 When the term “After….Louis Valtat "; 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 himself or another artist/ printmaker..

 Signed - Louis Valtat ; “Dated….” or “Inscribed Louis Valtat ” 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, Louis Valtat is specified followed by the words; "With signature ….”, or “With date ….” or “With inscription….” or “Bears signature of Louis Valtat /date/or inscription” Then in 'their opinion,' the signature / date / or inscription is spurious, forged or has been added by someone else other than the artist.
