Eugene BOUDIN - Art Authentication: Before you begin

 

* Before entering into a full investigation of the legitimacy of a work of art you believe may be by Eugene Boudin, 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 Freemanart 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 logical & cost effective professional assessment and advisory for which there is a modest set fee.

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

 

 

 

 

 

Authenticating  the Paintings of Eugene Boudin

 

 If you ever had the opportunity of seeing a master crafstman at work, particularly faking paintings by Eugene Boudin in his studio in the West country as I did, you would have been amazed at just how easy and fluidly his northern French plages & beach scene recreations were to paint.

To the untrained eye, they were exactly the same, but rarely painted on a French canvases, seldom available to the old boy from his local auctioneers in Cornwall. Instead, he sought out old brown backed Victorian pot boiler paintings which were immersed in caustic paintstripper until they bubbled .

 

 

 

 Old sets of oil paints were not difficult to find in and around the junk shops and auction houses if mid Cornwall in the 70's and 80's, they were cheap. Seldom if ever even looked over by the antiques pickers and these made an ideal stock pile for our Fowey based artist. He like his contemporary English faker of masterpieces, Tom Keating, was overlooked and ignored as an artistic talent in his own right by the art critics and gallery owners. So he set about proving his ability by creating works in the 'manner of' other artists and putting them back through the auctions they came from, or shipping them off up to the Midlands. Always with a little help from elderly friends who had 'discovered them' in their attics, or could remember them on their own parents walls ! An ideal provenance.

 

 At one time, in his stairwell leading from the studio to his kitchen, I counted at least eight Boudin signed La Plages, with their little signature tricolour flags alongside a couple of Manet's, which strangely, by the following Wednesday, when I went round for  my weekly chat, had magically disappeared!

It's ironic that all these years later, I am now involved internationally with the authentication of art and have to secretly smile to myself when I see one I recognise. And I ask myself, is this Derek's hand, God rest his soul?
