AUTHENTICATION

 

 

 

Raoul DUFY Art Authentication Processes: Before you begin

 Before entering into a full investigation of the legitimacy of a work of art which you believe may possibly be by Raoul Dufy, be it academic, forensic; or as with most cases, both, it is essential to know if the project is viable and more importantly, a provable issue.
Much the same as you would need to know if you were taking a legal case to court.  Because at this level, society demands high respect. So there is no place for unsupported hypothesis, assumption, supposition and opinion alone.

 In order to address and judge the issue of viability, we always 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 and provenance as known.
Logically, if it is not realistic to do so, you should not attempt it, as 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 research, provenance investigations and forensic analysis cannot be conducted from behind a desk, particularly somewhere geographically far away from where the artists physical archives are held. Nor can it be totally reliant upon the internet.

That is entirely why we are located in Europe, where we have both the access and the expertise to conduct investigations and research efficiently and professionally for you.

AUTHENTICATING THE  ART, DRAWINGS  AND  PAINTINGS OF RAOUL DUFY
   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

        

  Raoul Dufy's colourful and lively watercolours have always captured the very essence of France and the French way of life during the early 1900's.

 

  But with Raoul Dufy's popularity surging as he brought to life images of the Cote D'Azur and the Riviera, yachting scenes and colourful regattas, horse racing and socialite parties, his paintings values and prices have risen incredible. Bringing with it an influx of Dufy forgers and fakers, intent on making a killing by introducing effective and convincing Raoul Dufy fakes and forgeries onto the open art market. At whatever cost to those who fall for them.

 

  In 1967 Elmyr de Hory was exposed for forging works of art pretending to be by Dufy, Picasso, and Derain. Britain's Tom Keating openly admitted to creating Raoul Dufy fakes. As did John Myatt. So to did Frenchman Geert Jan Jansen. He faked dozens, both watercolours and oil paintings claiming to be by Dufy too.

 

 Police are now investigating whether a modern day forger who conned both Lempertz and Christies the major auctioneers out of over £30 million in modern masters, including forgeries of Dufy's paintings, is a man called Wolfgang Beltracchi, 59, an artist from Freiburg, aided by his wife, Helene, 52, and her sister, Susanne, 57.

 Hugely influenced by the French artist Henri Matisse and the Fauvist group, Raoul Dufy developed a unique style full of vigour and colour. Such as the typical watercolour works of Paris and a floral group painted by Raoul Dufy below. Sadly, paintings which are so easily emulated and faked today.

It's so easy to mistake a Dufy print for an original watercolour.

Take this rarely seen Dufy work. A Chateaux entrance for example, believed for years to be
an original Dufy painting.

                                    ^

It's not until you enlarge part of the signature area does it give its real identity away !

Some serious research and we can now identify the original painting as being:

Le Haras du Pin, Normandy. Painted by Dufy in 1936 and many times between 1930 -39.
It is one of the oldest and best known stud farms. And the original is currently housed in Baltimore Art Gallery, USA.

     

            Here's the secret signature of a commercial Lithograph using photographic technology.

                                       Paint lies on top or soaks into paper, not changing into dots or lines.

 

The vintage Lithograph was printed by The United States Printing and Lithograph Company

New York Graphical Society Ltd. Greenwich, Connecticut. in 1945, and priced at $18.00
