Art Authentication: Before you begin

 

* Before entering into a full investigation of the legitimacy of a work of art, be it academic, forensic or as with most cases, both, it is essential to know if the project is at all viable and possibly provable. Much as you would need to know if you were taking a legal case to court.

Logically, if it is not, you should not attempt it, as the risk of failure is too high.

So we always prefer to make a preliminary and vital professional pre authentication assessment for clients first. This is based upon the images you supply, the details and the items history.

This is a sensible & cost effective professional assessment and advisory for which there is a modest set fee.

Click our FAQ's which explains the process in detail.

 

  

 

 

  There really are very few expert, professional art authentication agencies in the world let alone art authentication experts and valuers serving Devon and Cornwall, and the West Country or even in the UK.

 Of those professional investigators specialising in academic investigations into art authentication and forensic art analysis that do exist, ask how many have the international ethical standing, the professional calibre, geographical location & academic investigative capacity of the Freemanart Consultancy and there is only one to choose from.

  In a world where art fraud comes second only to drug trafficking in criminal levels, it is vital that before securing, selling or investing in a work of art, be it an oil painting or watercolour, that formal guarantees of authenticity are established to protect all parties.

Reynolds art authentication experts

  Perhaps the West Country's greatest gift to the art world was the Kings painter, Sir Joshua Reynolds. Probably the most famous of all Devonshire artists and a portraitist born in Plympton St Maurice near Plymouth in 1723. Reynolds went on to found the Royal Academy and was court painter to King George III.

 

 With so many artists of his time following and emulating his style and manner, many misattributed works exist as do many works of the time which have mysteriously gained the notable Reynolds signature magically overnight!

 
  Devon has since given us the genius of: Robert O Lenkiewicz, John Anthony Park, Charles Henry Malfroy, John White Abbott, William Traies, Devon Claude, Doris Clare Zinkeisen, Alfred Wallis, Beryl Cook, Frederick John Widgery, James Northcote, Samuel Prout, Charles Locke Eastlake and Benjamin Robert Haydon. Willaim Widgery, with her sister Cornwall adding massively to the list, with the Newlyn School, St Ives school with Samuel John Lamorna Birch, Henry Bone, Condy, Coudrille, Stanhope Forbes, Norman Garstin, Thomas Cooper Gotch, Hern, Ingram, Lanyon, Winifred Nicholson, John Opie, Albert Chevallier Tayler, Henry Scott Tuke, Alfred Wallis, Nicholas Charles Williams, Walter Langley, Frank Bramley, Dod Proctor, Carey Morris, Albert Moulton Foweraker, Leach, Sickert, Talmage, Frost. Laura Knight, Harold Harvey, Tom Mostyn. Rowden & Shapland.

All artists we have investigated the legitimacy and authenticity of paintings of over the years & undoubtedly will continue to do so.

Harold Harvey authentication

 
  Freemanart are an expert team of art professionals and art authentication investigators who bring to our broad UK & Cornish client base, over 39 years continuous experience in the world of art authentication and art valuation. Conducting both forensic & academic authenticity procedures, archival study and in depth investigations internationally.

Frankly, we are one of the busiest independent agencies in the world.

 

 As we are literally already here on the ground in the West Country, the UK and Europe, working from bases in England, France, Italy, Spain and Germany, what better position could you ask for in subjective research, closed archive access & expert investigations of British or European origin works of art. Including Old masters, modernists, abstract, Impressionist is our forte, though our vast expertise covers the West Country artists too.

 

 Art experts of any kind are indeed rare, particularly those who specialize in investigating and authenticating art and pursuing the authenticity & provenance of historical, antique AND modern paintings.

 

 This work load would normally include the authentication of all drawings, prints and sculptures but from all time periods and geographical regions too.  From Picasso right through to the Old Masters. Widgery to Tuke.

Already working for Devon and Cornwall and UK based individuals, collectors, agencies and corporate clients, from our international laboratories and offices, Freemanart are just that.

Before you begin a full scale Art Authentication Project:

 

                            Remember, art authentication is not about guesswork and certainly not about wishful opinion.

                           It is a world where there is little room for conjecture or opinion alone and is all about reality. With authentication,

                           we have to prove the point not just opine on it.

 Most normal human beings are naturally guided here to us on the Internet by a dream. A dream that what they have  may just be something special after all. They are beguiled by that magical possibility and why not?

It's a simple possibility that what they believe to be true, what they have been told is true or what they want to believe is true, is actually true!

 But do remember this, with art authentication, that dream has to be absolutely proven. Just like a case placed before a court of law

In court, any case must be proven and adjudged convincingly, without a shadow of doubt and proven in many different ways; Academically, Forensically and in reality. All of this has to be achievable before the the work of art can be pronounced absolutely authentic by the ultimate authority.

 

 Before you get into the procedures minefield which can evolve with art authentication, a field which may be both financially and emotionally taxing, it is more than wise to be realistic about the whole issue and have an independent 'preliminary assessment' into the viability of authentication in your case conducted first.

It's how we work and what we do.

 

 A pre authentication assessment, is a professional assessment which is based upon reality. One which balances the viability of your work of art and its background and assesses the potential and possibility based on our past experiences. All in all, that the case may be realistically followed through and eventually possibly be proven.  

The advice you get will be invaluable and based upon the simple question; Is there any reality in the possibility that the work of art could be right then can we diminish the risks and do we have any serious chance achieving our objective?


If a project is literally not achievable and most likely not provable, surely it would be sensible to know that from the start?

 Such an assessment then allows the client to make a wiser, considered decision and apply a greater degree of sensibility in taking the leap into a staged, full blown authentication investigation.

It makes a great deal of sense.
