International Fine Art Authenticity Investigations

Marc Chagall

(24 June 1887 – 28 March 1985)

Russian-French

 

 

 In recent years an ever growing number of works with the name Marc Chagall have been sold at auction and as the values of works of art by him consistently climb ever higher, there is an even greater need for confirmation of legitimacy.

So it would follow, that any works that do surface from the mists of time, will require both a comprehensive and thorough investigation of their backgrounds and their authenticity.  With similar serious levels of scrutiny made for confirmation that any previously given attribution is correct and that a given description of a work of art seemingly by Marc Chagall can truly be relied upon and is safe.

 With such very high values of his paintings prevailing in the art market and the demand by collectors, even for modest works, then attempts at imitation by forgery, at all different levels is an obvious but sad consequence and we see many, pastel, pen and ink and tempera works abound.

 One of the simplest ploys adopted by those intending to deceive in general, is to add a signature or monogram to an otherwise anonymous work, apply a forged studio stamp, or a new and persuasive inscription or gallery label to a picture. It need only to be one of a vaguely similar nature or style to that of the artist in question and there are many followers of an artists style and also , many student of the arts emulators creating product that is similar, but never quite the same. This is the most common form of criminal deception that we see.

Though there are undoubtedly others that deliberately forge works of art by others for gain. Unfortunately, forgery sometimes applies to faked provenance, documentation and even COA's too.

  International fine art consultants and fine art investigators specialising in conducting full investigations into the authenticity of works of art created by artists in all categories and historical eras. We scrutinize and research provenance and have been confidentially serving and advising both private individuals and corporate clients from around the world for over 45 years.

 We can assist and advise you in all fine art related matters, particularly issues of authenticity and the attribution of any old or modern master works of art, including the works of Chagall. In fact, any works of art that you are unsure about.

 Some example works of art appear below as illustrations. Note: No inference is made nor is it intended as to the question of their legitimacy unless stated. Moreover they are an across the board representational view of the differing types of works that are and may be offered and advertised for sale at auction internationally.

CHAGALL PRINTS

 

   *Due to the large number of forgeries and fake Chagall prints sold on Internet auction sites as original limited edition prints that we have subsequently investigated for clients, we no longer engage in or pursue the authentication of any Chagall signed artist limited edition prints.

 We respectfully suggest that you personally reference the excellent Catalogue Raissone presented by Ulrike Gauss & Christofer Conrad for that purpose and satisfy your self completely, before ever considering such a purchase.

 

 

 

 

FABRICATED  CHAGALL  PROVENACE

 

 

 Fake Chagall  documentation and forged Chagall testimonials and all too common, as are bogus Chagall Certificates of Authenticity.

It is quite easy for fraudsters to fabricate such paperwork to accompany pictures that are being offered for sale, so don't believe everything that you are told or read when it comes to supporting documentation.

 By definition, provenance is the established and well recorded prior history of ownership, starting from the creation of the work of art by the artist himself and moving onwards in time. It must be absolutely clear and precise and therefore traceable, for it to have any degree of credibility.

It cannot be just a fabricated list ,compiled or made up by a seller.

"It came from a Private collection," or "Direct from a New York estate...." means nothing and tells you even less.

We want to know what collection and what estate and if it can't be disclosed and proven then ask yourself why?

If there is a line of decent indicated in the provenance, descriptor or documentation, then check it thoroughly, or have it checked.

 

FAIL TO PREPARE  -  PREPARED TO FAIL

 

 

 

Duxbury

 If you are presented with a Chagall, Picasso or Matisse, or any other work of art claiming to be by a prominent major artist, with a physical paper Provenance document bearing an impressive English coat of arms, looking anything vaguely like the one above, be wary.

It proclaims that the item it supports was just one of a large number of works of art that were inherited from 'father', who was a far travelled British diplomat, with a name sounding remarkably like the one above.

 Our investigations into this issue, which has cropped up several times in the past, which at first sight may suggest a connection to an impressive collector family, suggested that the father, a well travelled art collecting international jet setter, who knew every one from Picasso to Lassie personally, was better described as an English labourer and was in fact never a diplomat!

The coat of arms is a JPEG image stolen from an internet heraldry web site and pasted into a Word document. The rest of the information a cacophony of very neatly told lies. Ambiguous rubbish which can be taken any way that you want.

 

 NOTE; There are a number of public prosector offices in the USA who would be very pleased to hear from you if you have come across one of these false documents, or know of one being presented for sale on the internet !

 

A word of caution about COA's

 Be cautious of anyone offering you a certificate of authenticity for any Old or Modern master work of European origin.

They are entitled to have their opinion, that is their right, but is that opinion any formal guarantee and is it from an internationally recognized scholar who is the absolute authority on that artist ? 
*Only those recognised by EU and International law and legally empowered to do so can rule on authenticity safely.

 

 

 

 

Chagall - Fine Art Authentication

 

 

 The duration and the direction of any authenticity investigation or an attribution of a work of art will inevitably vary from project to project. But there are clear and very well defined professional formalities, responsibilities and areas of scrutiny that we can formally assist you with, including:

 

  • Authentication: Authentification: Conducting comprehensive investigations and in depth research into a work of art with a view to establishing a correct, complete and formally recognized certification. One absolutely upheld by the appropriate, legally acknowledged and internationally sanctioned authority, body or expert on that given artist. Directing detailed and complicated inquiries, with multilingual capability, including any international academic research and forensic applications that are required.

 

  •  Attribution: Identifying and confirming the identity of a previously anonymous artist, studio or workshop from which a work of art most likely originated. Including the re-examination and investigation of a previous attribution which may be incorrect, or the scrutiny of an attribution that has been formally questioned or is currently doubted.

 

  •  Confirmation:  Undertaking research and investigations into the legitimacy of the provenance, history and prior ownership of a work of art and establishing its accuracy and legitimacy.

  •  Scrutiny: Examen minutieux:Identifying fake or faux works of art and forgeries, including any false supportive accompanying documentation and determining works of art which may be studio or later copies, or previously given incorrect attributions.

  •  Prosecution: Poursuite: Investigating alleged art fraud and forgery and assisting and advising those who are currently , or may be considering litigating or prosecuting the fact. This includes colleagues who are legal professionals and individual private clients.

  •  Attention: Conducting all fine art related due diligence and duty of care inquiries. Including safe prepurchase or sale related audits and assisting clients in consolidating a well balanced future family distribution.

 

  •  Appraisal: Évaluation - Valuations and condition reports.

 

 

 

 

 

Step one in the Art Authentication and Attribution process.

The Pre-Authentication Assessment

 

    Before you begin any authenticity, legitimacy, or artist attribution investigation, it is wise to have an impartial preliminary assessment of the viability of the project conducted first. One made to independently and rationally balance any negative issues there may be against the positive. You should treat this study as a primary safety net.

 We will be happy to professionally undertake this for you, based upon good quality images that you supply and all the known facts regarding its acquisition, the history and the provenance of the work of art as is known to you.

You will then have a far better understanding of the prospects and indeed the possible pitfalls that could lie ahead.

See our FAQ's for details of the process
