Cezanne Art Authentication Investigations - Before you begin.


* Before entering into a full investigation of the legitimacy of a work of art which you believe may possibly be by Paul Cezanne, be it academic, forensic, or as with most cases, both forms of scrutiny, it is essential to know if the project is viable and more importantly, possibly provable.

It is the same kind of assurance that you would require if you were thinking about taking a legal case to court.

At this level, societies demands are high when it comes to ruling on authenticity. So there is no place for unsupported, nor impractical hypothesis, unreliable assumption, nor any supposition and unfound opinion alone.

 To measure and balance this serious issue of viability, we prefer to make a preliminary and vital professional pre authentication assessment for clients first. One based upon the images you supply and the full details of the work of arts history.

Logically, if it is not realistic to do so, you should not move on. Frankly the risk of failure is too high.
This is a cost effective professional assessment and advisory service for which there is a modest set fee.

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

 

 

A word of caution:

 Expert authentication investigations and research cannot be conducted from behind a desk set geographically far away from where artists physical archives are held. Nor can it be reliant upon the Internet.

This is why we have bases in Europe, where we have both the access to those archives and the international expertise to conduct investigations efficiently.

 Be cautious too, of anyone claiming they offer you a certificate of authenticity. Yes of course they can offer their opinion, but is it recognised internationally?  Answer?
Only those recognised by law and legally empowered are able to do that and they are exactly the ones who we have to present the case to.

 

 

 

Authenticating the art, paintings and drawings of Paul Cezanne

 

 

  The French artist Paul Cézanne certainly did not sign or date all of his paintings during his prolific artistic career, thus making Paul Cezanne art authentication and positive attribution an extremely difficult task indeed.


 Based upon expert opinion alone, many paintings believed to be by Paul Cezanne have been summarily dismissed over the years, either as fakes or forgeries. Or alternatively written off as paintings initiated by a Cezanne follower and imitator of his style. Thus previously wrongly judged as legitimate Cezanne works of art.
When you consider this poor and dubious methodology, opinion alone, it is something of a dangerous preoccupation as we now have the tools available to discover and uphold the proof, that is beyond opinion alone in these modern times with forensic expertise and physical cross comparative analysis and investigation.

Available now is finite absolution which can rebuff off-hand expert negativity and counter such shoddy overburdening opinion.

 The opposing argument is also interesting to consider here. That if this is so, which is reasonable to assume, many works to date previously attributed as legitimate works by Cezanne in this way may possibly not be so and have been wrongly attributed to Cezanne by so called experts in the first place but are actually Cezanne fakes.

So the controversy continues.

 

 

 Investigating the authentication of any work of art, despite those believed to be by Cezanne is an infinitely time consuming task. One with hours of painstaking effort researching in European closed archives. Conducting detailed forensic analysis and cross comparative analytical studies, that is well before the final presentation of any case for attribution or authenticity to the legitimate authority.

  Annually at the Freemanart Consultancy we see dozens of works of art believed to be by Paul Cezanne, with many, with nothing atypical about them at all.

Missing Cezanne's.

  La Maison Jas de Bouffan in western Aix-en-Provence was the country house of Paul Cezanne's family and his home for many years. Its environs played an important role in his artistic development with its images captured in many of his lesser known works from that period. In fact, many of these earlier paintings are missing, presumed burned by Cezanne himself after the death of his mother and the unavoidable sale of the property. But were they all destroyed or are there more lost Cezanne's out there yet to be discovered and proven legitimate?

 

 

 

 Paul Cezanne paintings it can be said, are easily identifiable by the accents and characteristic style that he developed. But what of the lesser works, the hundreds of oil studies, drawings and sketches which he produced in his lifetime which do not comply with the norm?

A STOLEN CEZANNE

 

CEZANNE: Garçon dans une veste rouge (Right) is believed to be one of the most valuable paintings in the world.

 Unfortunately,'Boy in a red vest' (Paul Cezanne) was stolen in recent years and its current whereabouts are still unknown. A huge reward is still outstanding and offered for information leading to its return and the prosecution of the thieves.

 The red vest theme was repeated in Cezanne's lifetime with several works created by him in the same vein and plenty of fakes too.

Cezanne Case Study

    Missing the patently obvious

 

 Two points here worth remembering with art authentication;

 One, it costs a lot of money to go straight into forensic art analysis and commissioning reports, particularly when it's a patent waste of time right from the start and totally unnecessary! Frankly unless you have bench mark comparables to work with, forensic analysis tells you little other than 'maybe' the materials used were available to the artist, not that they are one and the same.

 

 Here is a not Cezanne which the client was certain was and subsequently commissioned an expensive forensic report from a European laboratory.

 


  The signature below is a fake. An addition to the original work of art added after the painting was executed.

The fluorescence of Ultra Violet light which makes the signature stand out against the background is physical testimony to that, as it the fact that the paint from the fake signature actually soaks into cracks (craquelure) on the original painting, yet these facts were ignored by the client.

 

Fake Cezanne Signature

However what cannot be ignored is the Stencil stamp on the stretcher on the back reading 289 GZ.

This is a typical identification stamp from the auction house Christies, Manson and Woods from London who used to follow the practise of stencilling submitting client numbers on the backs of paintings and more importantly keep records of what they took in going back a goodly way.

 This stencil number corresponds exactly with a shipment of 40 paintings which were submitted to Christies London for auction in July of 1940 by the British Red Cross Society. All of the works of art were donated by unknown individuals from the UK and elsewhere to the charity to help raise money the war effort. The paintings, including this one was sold on the 25th of October 1940. None of the landscapes made more than £5 GBP and in 1940 this one had no signature!

After the sale it magically grew one!

Paul Cezanne died in 1906 a full 34 years before the painting appeared at Christies.

 One can easily opinine on whether the painting looked like a typical Cezanne or not, but logic and record are undoubtedly master here.
