Conducting investigations into the authenticity and legitimacy of Canadian and International fine art for Maritime clients

Including all Canadian and European Old & Modern Masters, artists, periods and genres.

 

 

 The Freemanart Consultancy's vast international experience in processing art authentication and attribution investigations of fine art for Canadians, naturally includes Canadian art but all other genres, artists and centuries too. From Medieval times up to the present day.

 With so many fakes appearing across Canada, claiming to be by Norval Morrisseau or Maud Lewis, Cornelius Krieghoff to all of the Group of Seven, and goodness knows how many more, it is not surprising that Canadians need the confidence of a work of art's authenticty underwriting and the myth that was handed down in the family, either proving, or finally busting for once and for all.

 For over 42 years we have been conducting professional academic and forensic investigations into the authenticity or otherwise of works of art for Canadian clients, but not only in Canada but around the world.

As such, we are a unique expert team specialising in international fine art authentication assignments which have fallen into clearly defined responsibilities, services & categories:

 

 

 

 

  • Authentication: Investigating with a view to establishing an internationally accepted and fully recognised accreditation of a given work of art. Specifically those art works with a responsible provenance, signature claim or firm belief. As well as those being well evidenced, or holding an earlier qualification of legitimacy.
    [Fully international, academic, archival and forensic applications & investigations.


  • Attribution: Identifying and confirming the identity of an anonymous artist, studio or workshop from which an unsigned and thus previously unqualified work of art originated. One not formerly known or positively identified.


  • Confirmation: Conducting investigative research and undertaking a full investigation of the provenance, lineage and history of ownership of a work of art.


  • Revision: Re-examining & investigating an erstwhile previously ascribed historical artist's attribution which is incorrect. One otherwise doubted, or has been formally challenged.


  • Scrutiny: Identifying deliberate fakes & forgeries and determining those which are studio or later student copies, or those works of art having been previously misrepresented thus given wrongful attributions.


  • Prosecution: Investigating alleged art fraud, fakes and forgery and assisting those prosecuting the fact, be they legal, civil or criminal prosecutors.

The Art Authentication Process  -  Before you begin

 

 

 Before entering into a full investigation of the legitimacy, authenticity or attribution of any work of art, be it academic, forensic or as with most cases, both, it is essential to know if the project is viable enough to justify that pursuit and in the final analysis, that it may be provable? Because in today's world, prove it you must.

And that evidence has to be sought and found wherever it may lie. 

Treat such an important issue as authentication as needing to know what chances you have if you were taking a legal case to court.

Logically, if it is not worth it, or if it's too risky and shot full of holes from the start, (or you're about to fall down one,) you should not attempt it.  Clearly, the risk of failure is far too high.

 

 So before you start, Freemanart always prefer to conduct a preliminary and vital professional pre authentication assessment for clients first.   A well reasoned, independent assessment based upon your images, the full known details and the items history.

It is a vitally important study that allows for a balanced rational measure of the risks and requirements that lie ahead.

Both a logical & cost effective professional assessment and advisory for which there is naturally a modest set fee.

Please see our   FAQ's  which explains this process in greater detail.
