“The Artist’s Artist”

 

   Most art lovers will recognize the format and style of de Kooning's dramatic abstract expressionist works, painted in the manner of the pictures above. But may know far less of his bronzes, sculptures, copious numbers of works on paper, drawings, pen and ink sketches and his early artistic endeavours. But, sadly, many of these are targeted and faked.

 In recent years an ever growing number of works bearing the name de Kooning have been consigned for sale in major auctions around the world and as the values of his works of art consistently climb higher and higher, , there is an 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 similar scrutiny made for confirmation that any previously given attribution is correct. So too that any description of a work of art seemingly by Willem de Kooning can truly be relied upon.

* * *

 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, from all 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 Willem de Kooning, his circle, studio and followers, or any works of art that you are unsure about.

Some example works of art appear below as illustrations. 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.

ABOUT A WORK OF ART DESCRIPTOR AND ITS TERMINOLOGY

 

  *It is important to very clearly understand the auction terms that are used in any published descriptor and to be cautious of works that may just be created in the manner of the artist, or those which could be variants of the artists works of art that bear a signature or monogram. In this case as if they were defining the creations of the artist Willem de Kooning (1904-1997).

 

  •  Where the name, Willem de Kooning (1904-1997) is given with the first name/s and surname of the artist, usually cited as Willem de Kooning (1904-1997), including his dates, then in their qualified and professional opinion they are in no doubt. It is a genuine and authentic item and one painted by that artist. This is usually fully qualified by its inclusion in any catalogue raissone, or by the guarantee of the opinion given by the appropriate and internationally recognized expert authority on the artist.

 

  •  When Attributed to Willem de Kooning (1904-1997) is used, or it is similarly defined as 'Attrib. to ' [abbreviated,] or Attribué à, 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.

 

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

 

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

 

  •  If the phrase in the “Manner of Willem de Kooning 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 as named.

 

  •  When the term “After….Willem de Kooning "; 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 or another artist/ printmaker.

 

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