Advise before you begin  any  Henri  Matisse  art  authentication investigation:

* Before entering into a full investigation of the legitimacy of a work of art you believe may be by the French artist Henri Matisse, be it academic, forensic or as with most cases, both, it is essential to know if the project is at all viable and at least, 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 even attempt it as the risk of failure is far too high.

Here at Freemanart, we prefer to make a preliminary and what wee feel is a vital professional pre authentication assessment for clients first. One independently based upon the images you supply, the details you have at hand and the items history as it is known.

This is a logical and cost effective professional assessment and advisory service for which there is a modest set fee.

 

Please see our FAQ's < here, which explains the process in more detail.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FAKING MATISSE

 

   It is widely held view that the art faker Elmyr de Hory was substantially responsible for introducing into the art market many fake Matisse works of art back in the 1950's, including a drawing (seen below) which went to the Fogg Art Museum in the USA. Undoubtedly there are many, many more waiting to be discovered by Matisse experts.

 There is now also serious controversy concerning a large number of Matisse sculptures which are either posthumous reproductions bearing Matisse's signature, 'originals' but dated after his death, or are not yet correctly established as authentic Henri Matisse works of art.

However, a commonly held opinion in authentication circles is the belief that deceased artists do not sculpt nor do they paint any more!

Other commentators cover this controversial subject more than adequately.

THE   ART   OF   AUTHENTICATING MATISSE

Expert de l'oeuvrede Henri Matisse

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  In general, it's Henri Matisse's graphic works which cause the greatest headache for authentication experts today. They flood the market alongside many Picasso's, Miro's and Chagall fakes and forged reproductions each bearing fake signatures in ever greater numbers.

 

 Most of these fake prints are illegitimate reproductions of original and authentic Matisse works of art called Heliogravures which are photographic reproductions of original works of art but they are NOT original prints by Matisset. They are not bargains nor investment potential, they are fakes.

They may be signed with the name Matisse but which Matisse signed them is another question?

 

 Henri Matisse saw print making as an extension of his drawing and an important part of his artistic output, so it is a great pity that so much questionable Matisse product is still available through internet sites and petit gray art dealerships, of which there are too many.

 

 Of the fake Matisse drawings and more minor fake Matisse paintings which you see from time to time on the internet or which appear at minor auction houses, house clearance and estate sales, then it's down to the general public to ask themselves the most salient question of all before they commit to buy the claimed to be by Matisse.

 

"Is it simply good enough to be by Henri Matisse?" 

 

Frankly, most fake Matisse works of art we see simply are no where near good enough!
