  The Freemanart Consultancy receive more Picasso authentication enquiries each month than for any other artist, moving on to fully investigate the legitimacy of a huge number of 'claimed to be by' Picasso works of art annually.

Not only for private individuals who need specialised help in preparing a case to be placed before the ultimate authority, but also for the legal fraternity and other corporate clients around the world.

 With a  massive upsurge in Picasso's fine art prices being achieved at auction in recent times, unfortunately, Picasso stays ahead as one of the most faked of all artists on the planet.

 As a professional team of international art authentication investigation specialists working in this field, well cited in Europe to conduct any Picasso authenticity investigation, we undertake all of the complex procedures and applications required in that process for clients. Always different and diverse activities, they have fallen into clearly defined professional responsibilities, formalities and multiple actions and apply to the investigation of any artists work we are asked to assist with.

 

  • Investigation and Research.  This is conducted with a view to establishing a full and internationally accepted, well proven case. One which may lead to an established and properly underpinned certification of a work of art.

  • Attribution: Pursuing and confirming the likely identity of the unknown artist, studio or workshop from which a work of art probably first originated.
  • Confirmation: Conducting the multilingual research required to confirm of the provenance, history, lineage and prior ownership of a work of art internationally.
  • Scrutiny: To identify forgeries, misrepresented or wrongful attributions.

  • Prosecution: Investigating alleged art fraud issues, assisting and advising those litigating or prosecuting the fact.

  • Attention: Conducting all fine art related due diligence and duty of care enquiries, prepurchase or sale related studies and advising on matters of safe and secure future family distribution.

READ LABELS AND INSCRIPTIONS CAREFULLY

 

   With the middle east functioning fluidly by introducing fake Picasso paintings into the market, you would have thought that these not so clever fakers would get their spelling right when it comes to claims of where their fake Picasso picture originated!

 Above is what seems at first to be legitimate Museum label. It was placed on the back of a fake Picasso painting, obviously put there to make things look convincing. But you must ask why such a really important international museum, such this, the Musee d' Orsay in Paris, would sell one of their works from their collection this way?

The correct spelling.

 Under Article 26 of the Spanish Penal Code, a forged, faked or added Picasso signature on any work of art claiming to be by him, is a criminal act. One punishable under Spanish law and perpetrators are liable to prosecution, heavy fines, or imprisonment for that crime.

 

 

Picasso Art Authentication Investigations: Before you begin.

 

 Before getting into a full investigation of the legitimacy of a work of art that you believe to be by Pablo Picasso, be it purely academic, forensic or as with most cases both methods of scrutiny, it is essential to know if the project is viable and to any degree, if it's likely to be successful.
Just
as you would need to have reassurance from your lawyer before you were took a legal case to court.

Logically, if it is not feasible to go that route, it would be unwise to attempt it.

 So we prefer to make a preliminary and vital professional pre authentication assessment for clients before they do take that step.

One based on the images you supply, the full details, history and provenance of the work as is known.

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

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

FAKE PICASSO OIL PAINTING:

Weeping Woman # II

 

 

< This oil painting on the left, signed Picasso, is a poor variation, more a copy, of a Picasso masterpiece. The Weeping Woman.

It is in fact a fake Picasso oil painting based on 'Femmé en pleurs' which was painted by Picasso in 1937.

 

 You might think that to try and pass a copy off as an original Picasso, particularly one so famous, verges on the ridiculous. Yet this painting was, along with several others and all with a very convincing story line. However, this Picasso was rather foolishly dated by its forger as being painted in 1946. This fake is also painted on an acrylic canvas and has acrylic (vinyl acetate) paint brush hairs embedded in the oil paintings surface! Artists materials being an invention of the 1960's.

 

 

 

 
 

Picasso’s 1902 work “La Femme Au Chapeau Bleu.” Picasso- Woman with a blue hat, copied for $1,000.00 sells for $2,000,000.00:

 

THE PICASSO  GENIUS

 

 

Science et Charite 1897-

Pablo Picasso - oil painting

 

 

 

 

 Whether you actually like Pablo Picasso's work or not, no one can deny that Picasso was an artistic genius, having created this painting on the left, before his 16th birthday!

 

 Without a shadow of a doubt, Pablo Picasso was enormously prolific in his output. Producing thousands of sketches, drawings, paintings and prints, as well as pottery, sculpture and ceramics. All this in an incredible career as an artist which spanned the best part of a century.

 

 Today, the 3 recognized official Picasso catalogue raisonnes including Zervos, account for some 15,000 of Picasso's works of art including Pablo Picasso canvas art, works on paper and sculptures that were created by the great Spanish artist.

No undocumented Picasso's or legitimate examples of Picasso's principal works of art, have emerged from the depths of time in recent years, yet there must be minor pieces yet to be discovered.

 It's true to say, some of the worlds greatest fakers of art have imitated and faked the modern art of Picasso and some very successfully too. But modern authentication investigation techniques, armed with 21st century science, have caught up with all but a few of them. Even so, some fakers still persist and do try to pass off fake Picasso art as legitimate. As do some unscrupulous dealers and auctioneers.

 

 

 

 

 

The Fake Certificate of Authenticity  - Forged COA.

 

 The provision of fake Picasso Certificates of Authenticity which support claims of authenticity, is more often than not, provided by unqualified individuals and we see many. Particularly with risky Pablo Picasso purchases.

 These flowery paper certificates, called COA's, are in fact all but worthless and at best unacceptable, that is, if they are not produced by the recognised authority and with Picasso, that is the Picasso Administration. Yet they still often accompany such works of art.

With little or no substance regarding the true authenticity of the artwork and absolutely no guarantee at all, people still regard them as important and are persuaded by them. But if the issuer has little credibility, or the qualification to issue one in the first place, you must be sceptical as well as cautious.!

 A legitimate and bonefide certificate of authenticity, must for any artist, absolutely qualifiy and define that the work of art is what it claims to be. A true and accurate rendition of their art and one legally produced by that specific artist.

It must also come from someone fully recognised as an authority on that artist to issue it.

 If the full identity and the qualification of the issuer is not declared on the COA, along thith their address, they may well have something to hide.


  Remember, a Certificate of Authenticity cannot be just a Certificate of Opinion!  It must be a guarantee of authenticity.
