Authenticating the Art of Paul Cézanne

 

 

STEP ONE - THE PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENT OF VIABILITY STUDY

Évaluation préliminaire de la durabilité de l'affaire

 

 

 

 We recommend that before entering into a full investigation of legitimacy or an attribution of any work of art believed to be by Paul Cézanne, it is essential to balance and consider its viability.

 

Therefore we prefer to undertake a preliminary professional pre-authentication assessment of the work in question for clients first.

We consider this a vitally important study, based upon the images you supply, the details of the work of arts history, provenance and its acquisition as is known to you and sight of any previous research or analysis that you may have formerly conducted.

An unbiased study, aiming to balance the positive issues against any negative. A logical and cost effective professional assessment for which there is a modest set fee.

You will then be in a far better position to decide if the project is rational and worth undertaking.

 

 

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

UNQUALIFIED CERTIFICATION COA's

A word of caution.

 

 

  Be very cautious of anyone offering Certificates of Authenticity (COA's) for any work of art claiming to be by any Old or Modern master artist of European origin, if they are not the ultimate, internationally recognized or legally empowered authority on the artist to issue it.

 

 Such individuals are quite entitled to hold an opinion, that is their right, but you must ask; Is that opinion unanimously considered as absolute and is it any formal guarantee of legitimacy? One provided by an internationally recognized scholar or body who is 'the' principal authority on that artist?á

 Only those recognized and supported by European and International law and  legally empowered to do so, can finitely rule on authenticity with any credibility.

 

 Any investigation of authenticity must be fully evidenced and responsibly proven before being presented to that authority formally for consideration and finite underpinning.

 

 

 

   
   

 

 

 

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

Many Cezanne works are unsigned, unprovenanced and with little or no traceable history at all.

But all receive the same level of impartial scrutiny and attention by us.

 

A CEZANNE CASE STUDIES BELOW

 

 

 

  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 investigations, or confirming positive attributions to his hand, an extremely tasking job.


 Based upon opinion alone, many paintings believed to be by Paul Cezanne have been summarily dismissed over the years as fakes or forgeries. Alternatively written off as paintings initiated by a Cezanne follower, an imitator of his style and sometimes previously but wrongly judged as legitimate Cezanne works of art, only to be later shown to be incorrect.


  When you consider the opinion alone methodology, it is a questionable approach by todays standards. Particularly as we now have the tools available to discover and often lever with forensic expertise and quality analysis and wide ranging and more diverse academic investigation methodology available to us.

The Missing Cezanne's.

 La Maison Jas de Bouffan in western Aix-en-Provence in France, 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 much earlier paintings are missing, presumed burned by Cezanne himself, after the death of his mother and the unavoidable sale of the property. But the question remains. Were they all destroyed, or are there still more lost Cezanne's out there yet to be discovered and proven as legitimate?

< It can be said that Paul Cezanne paintings are easily identifiable by the strong 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 abundance in his lifetime which do not comply with the norm?

 At the Freemanart Consultancy, with bases in North America and Europe, with good access to European archives, we specialize in conducting in depth fine art authentication investigations. Expertly preparing the case for for clients across the world. Sometimes even

against authenticity for the legal fraternity, or for individuals who are taking legal action against the perpetrator of an alleged art fraud.

Art authentication is also important for clients considering the delicate matter of future family distribution, those requiring the underpinning of Cezanne authentication prior to a possible purchase, or to support the brokerage of their own Cezanne painting.

All have particular, curious and totally different agendas to follow with the authentication process.

We can certainly assist and advise you professionally if you are in need of serious help.

Fail to prepare...prepare to fail.

Paul Cézanne Case Study

 

 

 Two points worth remembering with art authentication;

Missing the patently obvious, is the first and most important one!

 It can cost a great deal of of money to get straight into forensic art analysis and commissioning reports. Particularly when it's obvious that it's a patent waste of time from the start and totally unnecessary to do so!

Frankly unless you have bench mark comparables to work with, forensic analysis tells you little, other than indicating that 'may be' that the materials used were available to the artist at the time?  Not that they are exactly one and the same.

 Here is a "not such a clever" Cezanne which the impatient client was certain was authentic and subsequently commissioned an expensive forensic report from a European laboratory, which of course they happily undertook !


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

The fluorescence in the UV spectrum which makes the signature stand out against the background, is 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 but was, is the Stencil stamp on the stretcher on the back reading 289 GZ.

 This is a typical identification stamp from a major auction house, who used to follow the practise of stencilling client numbers on the backs of paintings and more importantly keeping records of what they took in for auction, historically going back a very long way indeed.

 This stencil number corresponds exactly with a shipment of 40 paintings which were submitted for auction in July of 1940 by the British Red Cross Society.

 

 

 All of these works of art were donated by unknown individuals from the UK and elsewhere to the charity. This was to help raise money for the war effort. 

The paintings, including this one was sold on the 25th of October 1940 and none of the landscapes made more than £5.00 GBP and in 1940 this one had no signature!

At some time after the sale, magically one appeared overnight!

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

 One can easily give an opinion and even sell a COA on whether the painting looked like a typical Cezanne or not.

But some applied logic and physical record are undoubtedly the master here.
