Authenticating the art of

GEORGES BARBIER (1882 - 1932)

AKA: Georges Augustin Barbier


 

 Georges Barbier, was a painter, designer and illustrator and easily one of the greatest French illustrators of the early 20th Century.

 Barbier was a, if not the leading figure in the birth of the Art Deco style and renowned for his exquisite illustrations that capture the mood, fashion and atmosphere of the 'Roaring Twenties'. He also frequently contributed to many important fashion publications and is regarded as a principal artist of this time frame.

Georges Barbier became most famous with the publication of two rare albums representing the dancers Nijinsky and Karsavina in the years 1913-1914 as illustrated below.


 

 

Schéhérazade.

 
Designs on the Dances of Vaslav Nijinsky was a series of prints by Barbier, published in 1913 when the dancer was at the height of his celebrity career.
Le Pavillon d’Armide.
 

 

 

A prolific designer, Barbier worked for many years in the field of theatre design, cultivating an aptitude for vivid colour effects derived from the example of the revolutionary Russian artist, costume and set designer Léon Samoilovitch Bakst.

Barbier's career did not accelerate however until he was nearly thirty and his drawings were so exceptionally good that his career could never said to have stopped, even after his death.

Barbier's art deco designs drawings are still so popular that they continue to thrive in reprint form and also on such varied objects as ceramics to stationary and even perfume bottles.

 

For major works by any artist to suddently appear out of the blue is going to cause suspition and deeper scrutiny by experts and it's not unusual for them not to appear on the art market that often. But drawings made AFTER the printed edition were published do appear on the market, provided to make unsuspecting purchasers and collectors believe they were preliminary works by Barbier for his final creations.

Anther issue is overpainted black and white lithographs, prints that never were intended to be coloured when they were published!

Even so, sometimes a good one shows up: A copy of the rare book turned up at a yard sale in Toronto and was bought for just $1.00. Appearing in 1913, this was the first book of its kind illustrated by Barbier which is really an album of drawings of the God of Dance Vaslav Nijinsky' principal ballet dancer with the Ballets Russes, pictured in his various roles with Diagileff's ballet in Paris.

It was brought in to the Roadshow in Canada where records showed that the auctioneers Christies sold one just like it for $3,000.00 USD.

 


 

 

 

 

 

Step one in the Art Authentication process

The Pre-Authentication Assessment.

 Before you start any Georges Barbier art authenticity or artist attribution investigation, it is wise to have an impartial preliminary assessment of viability conducted first, made to independently balance any negative issues there may be against the positive.

We are happy to professionally undertake that study for you as a safety net, based upon the images that you supply, all the known facts regarding its acquisition, the history and provenance of the work as is known to you.

You will then have a far better understanding of the prospects and pitfalls that may lie ahead.
