Investigating the Authenticity and Attributions of works of art believed to be by;

Bernardus Johannes Blommers

'B J Blommers' - 'Blommers'

Dutch (1845-1914)

Social realism - Hague School

 

 

  In brief, B.J. Blommers' trained under Jozef Israëls who was a major influence on his work, paintings and watercolours which are generally images of farmers and of the fishermen in Katwijk aan Zee and Scheveningen. The difference being that Israels works were somewhat gloomy, whereas Blommers focussed on the brighter side of life, with contented families and children set in bright and comfortable interiors.  Such paintings of high quality were in high demand at that time and he had a prolific output and a comfortable style and so Blommers enjoyed immense popularity as an artist, particularly abroad in his own day.

  Today, particularly now that values have risen so high, it is very important to be able to differentiate between those works executed by him, against those 'claiming' to be by him and those replicated or repeated by others, either in his studio or elsewhere and indeed those works which were created by artists from within his direct circle. Then there are works to consider that were simply painted by his followers. Artists who produced similarly themed paintings in his manner, but who painted them at any period after him.

 Unfortunately, there are some intent upon deception today, who locate a vaguely similar, preferably anonymous painting or drawing, one executed in a similar style and manner to that of an artist and add to it, a copied signature or monogram, a forged atelier, studio, or auction house stamp, or put on it a new and persuasive inscription relating either to it or to a previous owner. A gallery label too can be convincing and soon the attempt at fraud is near complete. 

This is easily the most common form of forgery that we encounter in our work and it has been happening this way for centuries.

Fine Art Authentication Investigation

 

  The duration and the direction of any authenticity investigation or inquiry into 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

   L'évaluation de pré-authentification. La evaluación previa a la autenticación

 

 

 We strongly advise clients before embarking on a full investigation of legitimacy or an artist or studio attribution inquiry, that it is wise to have an impartial preliminary assessment conducted first. One made to balance any issues that may be present that could make the longer term exercise unviable.

 This is a professional advisory service we provide, based upon the images you supply, the full details of work of arts acquisition, its history and provenance as is known to you, along with sight of any documentation, previous research or analysis that you may have had formerly conducted.

You should then have a far better understanding of both the prospects or any pitfalls we may face, before making a decision. This is a logical and cost effective professional review for which there is a modest set fee.

DESCRIPTORS AND TERMINOLOGY

 

  *It is very important to clearly understand the auction terms that are commonly 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; Bernardus Johannes Blommers (Dutch, 1845-1914) and his school & studio.

 

  •  Where the name, Bernardus Johannes Blommers (Dutch, 1845-1914) , is given with the first name/s and surname of the artist, usually cited as, Bernardus Johannes Blommers (Dutch, 1845-1914) , including his dates to be specific, 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 Bernardus Johannes Blommers (Dutch, 1845-1914) 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 that it 'possibly' may be by him.
  •  But if the term Bernardus Johannes Blommers- circle of, entourage, or “ Circle of Bernardus Johannes Blommers ” 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 Bernardus Johannes Blommersi ” or “Follower of Bernardus Johannes Blommers 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 Bernardus Johannes Blommers 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….Bernardus Johannes Blommers "; 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 - Bernardus Johannes Blommers ; “Dated….” or “Inscribed Bernardus Johannes Blommers ” 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, Bernardus Johannes Blommersis specified followed by the words; "With signature ….”, or “With date ….” or “With inscription….” or “Bears signature of Bernardus Johannes Blommers /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.
