Russian Art Authentication: Before you begin


* Before entering into a full investigation of the legitimacy of a Russian work of art, be it academic, forensic or as with most cases, both, it is essential to know if the project is at all viable and possibly provable. Much as you would need to know if you were taking a legal case to court.

Logically, if it is not, you should not attempt it, the risk of failure is too high.

We always prefer to make a preliminary and vital professional pre authentication assessment for clients first. This is a study based upon the images you supply, the details and the items history.

This is a logical & effective professional assessment and advisory for which there is a modest set fee.


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













 Astonishingly, international art experts and authenticity specialists estimate that as much as 80 % of all Russian works of art offered for sale today, in an art market worth millions, are actually counterfeit, fakes and well accomplished forgeries.


 As a result and for about the past year or so, Russia’s art market has faced its worst crisis of confidence in the post-Soviet era and Freemanart have been at their busiest. For many years there have been suspicions about the source of fake antique icons which has become accepted as the norm.


 Today, even the avant-garde works by artists such as Alexander Rodchenko, Malevich, Popova, Vasily Kandinsky and Goncharova are attracting bigger and bigger prices at auction and are subject to faking & Fraud to an industrial degree.

Malevich Fake?






 Fake suprematist compositions, as with targets like the Malevich above, built up from simple geometric elements and easy to replicate, had begun to hit the art market in the 80's.

 Now its the turn of Altman, Ivan Bilibin, Ilya Chashnik, David Shterenberg and Udaltsova. Alexander Kiselev, Ivan Shishkin, Vasily Polenov, Feodor Vasiliyev, Potinokov, Alexei Jawlensky, Vladimir Orlovski, Alexej Harlamoff. All are prime targets for faking as they command excepotional returns at auction.  Absolutely none are safe.


   Many a fake Russian landscapes start off as little known pot boiler, German, Dutch, Danish and Scandinavian works bought at auction and at little cost. The art fakers skillfully transforming them into long lost masterworks which sell in the tens and sometimes hundreds of thousands.

too are now prime targets for the fakers as are Bilibin's works.
