Investigating the Authenticity and Attributions of works of art believed to be by;

James Wilson Morrice  R.C.A

( 1865, Montréal ~ 1924, Tunis)

Canadian painter

 

 

 A Canadian in Paris, coming from the wealthy elite of the Montreal, Morrice became the very first and only Canadian artist to sustain a viable career of international stature in what was, at that time, the capital of the art world.

The most apt description of Morrice comes from his close friend Henri Matisse:

 “As a man, he was a true gentleman, a good friend with plenty of wit and humour. He had, as everyone knows, an unfortunate craving for whisky. . . . He was a Canadian of Scottish descent, from a rich family, very rich himself, but he did not show it. He was always over hill and dale, a little like a migrating bird but without any fixed landing place.”

 

 Incredibly well travelled, Morrice always painted from life what are known as small pochades or colour sketches directly outdoors 'plein air'and filled up his sketchbooks with drawings and studies showing settings of urban life, bustling cafés, genre scenes, landscapes of course and cities and buildings with human figures.

 

 His works today are highly collectible and are getting ever more valuable, even the most modest examples. And as the values increase and his works are getting even rarer, it is important to be able to distinguish between those actually executed by an artist like Morrice, compared to those either 'claiming' to be by the artist, or a work that we are told is by him.

 Many unsigned anonymous paintings are attributed to an artists hand stylistically. Or are described as being a contribution from someone close to them from within their circle of influence. Whilst others are created entirely by an artists followers, both working in their style and using similar subject matter.  These can be artists of all standards and calibres, simply working in the artists manner and at any time in the past and with this brings a risk. So you must ask, is an attribution to a specific artist and a description of a work of art itself, reliable and sound?

 But when the values are getting high, there are always the attempts at copying an artists hand by directly forging new variants of their oil works. Usually these can be executed over the top of an old pot boiler, or amateur painting, bought cheaply at auction and convincingly from the artists actual era. So they start by looking the right age and are then stripped off with solvents prior to a new creation being made. Then again, there are works which are vaguely similar to the artist that suddenly gain a new signature overnight.

Art Authentication Investigation

 

 

   The duration and the direction of any authenticity investigation or inquiry into 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 given expert on that 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 formally 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 own 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 well balanced future family distribution.

 

  •  Appraisal: Évaluation -  Valuations and condition reports.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step one in the Art Authentication and Attribution process.

The Pre-Authentication Assessment

   L'évaluation de pré-authentification. La evaluación previa a la autenticación

 

 

 We strongly advise clients before embarking on a full investigation of legitimacy or an artist or studio attribution inquiry, that it is wise to have an impartial preliminary assessment conducted first. One made to balance any issues that may be present that could make the longer term exercise unviable.

 This is a professional advisory service that we provide, based upon the images you supply, the full details of work of arts acquisition, its history and provenance as is known to you, along with sight of any documentation, previous research or analysis that you may have had formerly conducted on it. You should then have a far better understanding of both the prospects or any pitfalls we might face, before making a decision.

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

ABOUT A WORK OF ARTS DESCRIPTOR AND TERMINOLOGY

 

  *It is very important to clearly understand the auction terms that are commonly used in any published descriptor and to be cautious of works that may just be created in the 'manner of' the artist, or those which could be variants of the artists works of art that 'bear a signature' or monogram. In this case as if they were defining the creations of the Canadian born artist; James Wilson Morrice 1865 - 1924

 

  •  Where the name, James Wilson Morrice 1865 - 1924, is given with the first name/s and surname of the artist, usually cited as, James Wilson Morrice 1865 - 1924, including his dates to be specific, then in their qualified and professional opinion, they are in no doubt. It is a genuine and authentic item and one painted by that artist. This is usually fully qualified by its inclusion in any catalogue raissone, or by the guarantee of the opinion given by the appropriate and internationally recognized expert authority on the artist.
  •  When James Wilson Morrice 1865 - 1924, is the term used, or it is similarly defined as Attrib. to ' [abbreviated,] or Attribué à, or ascribed to, then in their opinion it is 'probably' a work by the artist, at least in part. But... there is no guarantee. It is only an opinion that it 'possibly' may be by the artist.
  •  But if the term James Wilson Morrice 1865 - 1924 - circle of, entourage, or “Circle of James Wilson Morrice ” is specifically used, then in their opinion, it is a work only of the period of the artist, but showing their influence. Or by someone closely associated with the artist, BUT not necessarily by their pupil or student.
  •  When the name is given thus; Painted in the “Style of James Wilson Morrice ” or “Follower of James Wilson Morrice is used, this means that in their opinion it is a work of art executed only in the artist’s way, their 'style', but not necessarily by a pupil. Yet it may be a contemporary, or nearly a contemporary of the artist.
  •  If the phrase in the “Manner James Wilson Morrice is used or is defined….” then in their opinion it is also only a work painted in the style of the artist, but of a later date and definitely not by the artist as named.
  •  When the term “After….James Wilson Morrice "; is the term used, then in their opinion it is a copy (made at any date) of an authentic and original work by the artist. This also applies to prints made 'after' an original work of art either by the artist or another artist/ printmaker.
  •  Signed - James Wilson Morrice ; “Dated….” or “Inscribed James Wilson Morrice ” Then in their opinion the work has been signed/dated/or inscribed by that specific artist. The addition of a question mark ? however, indicates a strong element of doubt.
  •  When the term 'Bears signature', is used or the name, James Wilson Morrice is specified followed by the words; "With signature ….”, or “With date ….” or “With inscription….” or “Bears signature of James Wilson Morrice /date/or inscription” Then in 'their opinion,' either the signature / date / or inscription is spurious, forged or has been added by someone else other than the artist.
