   The Dutch Golden age of painting brought its finest of master craftsmen to the helm and right at the front of the list of Dutch Old Masters of the finest and purest kind was Leiden artist Gerrit Dou, born (Gerard Dou)

  Trained by Rembrandt, his small superlatively crafted paintings were photographic in quality. So admired was the Leiden artist Gerrit Dou, that he was soon to be emulated, copied and faked to a dramatic degree, even employing members of his own family to keep up with production demands, leaving us with a legacy of art authentication problems to sort out in the 21st century.

  Gerrit Dou's masterpieces depicting typical Dutch genre scenes, often in his own inimitable arched format were highly regarded and collected by European Monarchs and wealthy collectors across the Continent and varying quality degrees of similarly painted works of art were suddenly available, driven by massive commercial demand.

 The problem of sorting out the authentic from the copies, the copies from the fakes and forgeries and the followers interpretations are left to experts to determine.

  Freemanart see far more fakes and copies of Golden Age works, than they do real Gerard Dou masterpieces, innocently and not so innocently turning up quite regularly at auctions and in art galleries around the world.

 

 

 

 

  So you think you have a Gerrit Dou oil painting but need it qualifying and confirming as authentic?

 The question is this. Is it a fake, just an interpretation or simply a copy by a Dou student or a pupil such as;

Gabriel Metsu, Frans van Mierisj, Pieter Cornelisz van Slingelandt, Pieter Harmensz Verelst, Dominicus van Tol, Pieter and Harmen van  Steenwijck, Jan Davidsz de Heem , Pieter Potter, Schlaken, Bartholomaeus Maton, Matthijs Naiveu, Gerrit Maes or by close followers such as Adriensz v. Gaesbeeck, Quirin van Brekelenkam.

But then there's a myriad of others to consider using his studio during his lifetime. Artists like Johannes van Staveren and Adriaen van Gaesbeeck. That's apart from the modern day fakers and forgery experts of the world and older ones like Jac. de Bray and Jacob Cats who also made good money out of pretending to be the man..
