Expert de l'oeuvrede Appel- Authentication of the art of Karel Appel

 

 

 

According to the Karel Appel Foundation;

"The Karel Appel Foundation cannot accept artworks for physical examination."

 So a question: Does the Appel Foundation determine authenticity of a Karel Appel picture by working from photographs alone! Answer; it seems they do!

 Then are they not opining, acting as both God, judge and jury here and ruling out totally and ignoring ALL scientific evidence which may exist in support of the authenticity of a hitherto unknown Karel Appel work of art?

 This is a chilling reminder of the archaic, burying of heads in the sand of many a European authentication committee and frankly down right dangerous.

In this day and age this is very, very wrong indeed and how many times do they ideed get it wrong before that changes ? !!

Karel Appel & Variety:

 

 ^ Massively influenced by the work of Willem DeKooning while on a trip to the USA, Karel Appel took a new step into abstractionalism,v far beyond his normal approach producing this work of art in 1959.

 

 For any art authentication investigation specialists or researchers, the problem in identifying authentic works by Karel Appel is the disparity of both quality and approaches between Appel's works from different periods of his life.

 

 Academic opinion alone is seldom enough in matters of authentication of art. Signature verification is imperative but not in all of Appel's works as many  Karel Appel works have been left unsigned. Some are fully signed and more just initialled. The science of forensics therefore justifiably has a major part to play in the authentication process.

 We employ mainly nondestructive forensic methodology in investigative support of the authentication of all art works including; Spectrographic & Raman technology, examination and testing plus macroscopic & microscopic forensic analysis. Science therefore very effectively assists us in identifying and dating pigments, inks and artist materials but without any adverse effect on the work of art. So too, our expert court recognized handwriting and document examiners play a vital role in the authentication of art process.

 Freemanart's forensic experts also conduct expert chemical analysis and fibre identification processes which reinforces the investigation procedure in the identification of fake drawings & paintings, signature forgery identification & art and supportive document  fraud, such as illicit and fake provenance, forged letters, wills and sales receipts.
