John Edward Brett ARA

John Brett

(1831-1902)

British

 

 

 John Brett, the son of a military vet, was born in Bletchingley, Surrey, on the 8th of December 1831 - and died 8 January 1902 in Putney, London. Brett was the leading British Pre-Raphaelite landscape artist of the time, who painted extensively in Wales and Cornwall/Devon, often painting small ‘on the spot’ oil sketches.

 Known for his highly detailed landscapes and seascapes, his most notable work that made his reputation was probably the Stonebreaker painted in 1858 now in the Walker Art Gallery. This impressed Ruskin who he had enthusiastically followed and later befriended and travelled to Italy with the following year.

 Brett had previously studied under James Duffield Harding and Richard Redgrave before joining the Royal Academy in 1853 and painted in Switzerland in 1858 and the Mediterranean region, including Bay of Naples and Sorrento in the 1860's with scientific precision.

 Brett painted mainly maritime scenes and coastal views in England and Wales with Scenes of Cornwall, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Wight and most notably the coastline of Wales were his focus in the 1870's and 80's.

 Often quite poorly emulated, as you will no doubt have seen, due to the vastly increasing values of his paintings, he is faked.

But there may be works that were either lost, mislaid, or have been with families for eons that have never surfaced, yet been documented. But today, it has to be said, some John Brett works that do appear of the open market are misattributed, either mistakenly or more commonly, deliberately, with the latter application all too frequent.

 Simply by the inclusion of a copied signature or more commonly, a monogram, placed on a work of art of a similar type, style, or subject matter to his own paintings, or one applied to a previously unsigned or lesser work, even a student of the arts emulated effort, (where an original signature has been deleted,) it is no wonder that question marks can and do so often arise about the authenticity of some John Brett paintings.

  Both the duration and direction of any attribution or investigation of authenticity will always vary from project to project, but there are clear and well defined professional formalities, responsibilities and areas of scrutiny that we can assist you with including:

 

Authentication: Authentification: Conducting and directing comprehensive investigations and in depth research, with a view to establishing a correct, full 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.

Directing detailed and complicated inquiries with multilingual, 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 doubted.

 

 Confirmation:  Undertaking research and investigations into the legitimacy of the provenance, history and prior ownership of a work of art and establishing its own accuracy.


 Scrutiny: Examen minutieux: Identifying fake works of art and forgeries, including any false supportive accompanying documentation and determining works of art which may be studio or later copies, or previous incorrect attributions.

 Prosecution: Poursuite: Investigating alleged art fraud and forgery and assisting and advising those who are , or may be considering litigating or prosecuting the fact. This includes legal professionals and 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.

The Pre-Authentication Assessment.

 

 

    Sensibly, before you begin any art authenticity, legitimacy, or any artist attribution investigation, it is more than wise to have an impartial preliminary assessment of the viability of the project conducted first. Made to independently and rationally balance any negative issues there may be against the positive elements. Treat this study as your 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 pitfalls that could lie ahead.

ABOUT PAINTING DESCRIPTORS AND TERMINOLOGY

John Edward Brett

 

 

  It is important to understand the auction terms used in any published descriptor and to be cautious of works that may just be painted in the style or manner of the artist, or even the stylized - would be copies of his works which happen to bear a signature or monogram. In this case the paintings and drawings of John Edward Brett.

 

 Where the name John Edward Brett given with the first name/s and surname of the artist, usually John Brett, then in their professional opinion it is the genuine and authentic item, one painted by the artist himself, John Edward Brett.

 But if the name John Brett; is described as “Attributed to John Brett, then in their opinion it is 'probably' a work by the artist, at least in part. But there is no guarantee. It's only an opinion.

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

 But if the term John Brett, or “Circle of John Brett” is used, then in their opinion, it is a work of the period of the artist and showing his influence, or closely associated with the artist, BUT not necessarily by his pupil or student.

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

 If the phrase in the “Manner of John Brett, is used it is defined….” Then in their opinion it's 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….” John Brett; is the term, 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..

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

 

We can assist and advise you in all fine art related matters.
