We conduct specialist international investigations and research into the authenticity of Paintings, Drawings & Graphics that may be by;

Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes

 

 

    Francisco de Goya was born on March 30, 1746 and became court painter to Charles III, Charles IV and Ferdinand VII of Spain. In fact, nearly a third of the paintings that Goya produced in his life around 160 in all, were fine portraits.

 

  Today, there are serious question marks looming over many works previously attributed to Goya. Paintings now believed may have been painted by his students or studio assistants, but there are other issues to contend with.


  After Goyas death in 1828, illicit followers of Goya' style tried to imitate his portraits and forgers created Goya-esque fantasy scenes to sell on to unsuspecting buyer collectors, flooding the European and American market in the second half of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

 

 

  The question remains; could it be a real Goya you have tucked away in the wardrobe, or hidden under the bed that Great, Great Grandma swore was a real Goya ? Or is it just something created by one of his pupils, or one of his studio assistants perhaps?

It could be that it's incorrect attribution made by the art experts long ago who thought it was actually a real Goya but got it very wrong by today's standards and it turns out to be something just painted in his style?

 

 Don't rule out the fact though that it could actually be a fake Goya too, there were lots created. But maybe it's just copy of one of his prints and drawn or painted by someone else later?

 Well, they say you won't know until you do know and you can't do that from behind a desk somewhere and certainly not by looking in a book, or trawling the internet till late into the night, looking for an answer.

 So take advise from those who specialise in Old Master authentication investigations and archival research who are based in Europe and do so before you start investing a lot of money on what could be a wild goose chase.

 

 

 

GOYA   -   PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENTS OF VIABILITY

 

 Before entering into a full investigation of the legitimacy of a work of art you believe may be by Goya, be it simply academic, forensic or as with most cases, both applications, it is essential to understand if the project is viable in the long term. Logic tells us, if it's not, you should not even attempt it.

 So with 44 years of international experience in old master attribution and legitimacy investigations behind us, we prefer to make a preliminary professional pre-authentication assessment for clients first.

A study based upon the images you supply and the full details and the work of art's history and provenance.

This is a logical and cost effective professional assessment and advisory for which there is a modest set fee. Then you'll know exactly where you stand.

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

 

   

 

 

 

 

The National Galleries Goya painting of Ronda lady, Doña Isabel de Porcel, for one was questioned, when a second painting was found underneath the portrait. A man in a striped jacket, that did not comply with his characteristic handling or style and is believed to have been painted later.

   

 

 

 

 

 

The Mets, 'Narcisa Barañana de Goicoechea' has recently raised some eyebrows too.

   

 

 

 And the long attributed to Goya; 'A City on a Rock' is now being attributed to Velazquez, but was formerly labelled as a '19th century concoction of Goya motifs by some unknown but obviously talented forger.'
Velazquez (1817-1870) Spanish was the most famous and talented of Goya's copiers and was believed to have made at least 700 fake Goyas in his career, including 'The Village Bullfight'

 

 
   

 

 

 

 

 Another fraudulent Goya stems from the prestigious Havemeyer collection, bequeathed to the Met in in 1929. 'Majas on the Balcony' is in doubt, because the original hands in the Prado Museum in Madrid. But of the American philanthopists the Havermeyers magnificent collection, containing some 15 Goyas in all, only three of them are now regarded as authentic!


The Prado also believe that Goya's 'Colossus' was probably not painted by Goya at all, but by Asensio Julia, Goya's apprentice.


Agustin Esteve y Marqués, another artist prominent in the Spanish Royal Household and an artist called Leonardo Alenza, are known for perfect Goya copies.

   

 

 

 

And it's believed that Goya's son, Javier Pedro Goya y Lucientes, may well have painted the Black Paintings series, previously believed to be by Goya.

   

 

 

 

 The Fogg Art Museums oil on canvas, Portrait of a Woman - Maria Isabella de Bourbon bequeathed as a Goya, was proven to be a fake after forensic analysis confirmed the presence of zinc white paint, invented well after Goya's death.

   

 

 

 

 In recent years, a portrait of the Spanish artist Antonio Maria Esquivel purchased by two Spanish brothers as a Goya, sold to them supported by a Certificate of Authenticity which they trusted, (Mistake) was later examined by experts and declared a Goya fake as it was painted in the 19th century.

   

 

 

 

 

 The legitimacy of Goya's 'Milkmaid of Bordeaux' (Museo del Prado, Madrid) has also been called into question.

   

 

 We have seen a number of ink drawings in recent times that bear the famous name of Goya, previously sold through 'reputable' New York auctioneers and dealers in the middle of the last century. They are clearly NOT early Goya preparatory studies 'for' his prints, as was alluded to in their written provenances, but came 'after' the prints were made and became available for the fakers to copy..
