Investigating the Authenticity of Paintings and works of art believed to be by or Attributed to

Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, O.M., R.A.

Born Lourens Alma Tadema

(1836-1912)

Victorian Neoclassical, Olympian Classical Revivalist Painter and Draftsman

 

 

  Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, born in Holland and trained in Antwerp specialized in highly finished classical scenes of incredible archaeological detail, luxury and decadence, usually depicting beautiful women.

 Exhibiting at the both Paris Salon and the Royal Academy, he was a highly regarded Academician.

A nationalised British citizen he was a painter of historical genre scenes and the ancient world including ancient Greece, Rome and Egypt. Of his major paintings there is little doubt they would, or even could be faked. However, lesser works, studies and drawings of type can be misleading.

 Adding a signature or a persuasive inscription, or a gallery label to a work, is a common place fraud and such imitation is clearly an attempted criminal deception. That kind of addition is usually to an anonymous and previously unsigned or marked work.

Today, paintings are sometimes deliberately misrepresented, or simply misjudged, or misattributed to a particular hand. That of course can be either be an honest mistake, or an intentional ploy and it can have been effected at any time in the present or indeed the past.

 Some of the believed to be Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema works that do surface, will need serious consideration and a far deeper investigation of their authenticity to be absolutely certain of both its legitimacy, or that a previously given attribution is correct.

The provenance and history associated with it too must ne scrutinized to see if it is valid and sound. Or indeed that any description of a work of art claiming to be by him is correct and can truly be relied upon.

 

* * *

 We are international fine art consultants and authenticity investigators specialising in conducting full investigations into the authenticity of works of art created by artists in all categories, in all regions and from historical eras. We fully scrutinize and track provenance,

confidentially serving both private individuals and corporate clients from around the world for over 45 years.

We can assist and advise you in all fine art related matters, particularly issues of authentication, legitimacy and the attribution of old and modern master works of art. Including the fine works of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, his circle and followers, or any paintings or works of art that you are unsure about.

 Some examples of works signed with that name appear below.  No inference or question is made as to their authenticity, moreover they are a cross the board representational view of the types of works offered for sale at auction internationally, some of which will need to be understood and sometimes some will specifically need to be fully qualified and authenticated.

ART AND AUTHENTICITY

  Both the duration and direction of any attribution or investigation into the authenticity of a work of art will inevitably vary from project to project, but there are clear and very well defined professional formalities, responsibilities and areas of scrutiny that we can professionally assist you with including:

 

Authentication: Authentification: Conducting and directing comprehensive investigations and in depth research, with a view to establishing a correct, complete and formally recognized certification of a work of art.

One that is absolutely upheld by the appropriate, legally acknowledged and internationally sanctioned authority, body or expert on that given artist. By directing detailed and often complicated inquiries, with multilingual capability, full international academic research and any forensic applications that are required.

 

 Attribution:  Identifying and confirming the identity of a previously anonymous artist, studio or workshop from which a work of art most likely originated. Including the re-examination and investigation of a previous attribution which may be incorrect, or the scrutiny of an attribution that has been formally questioned or is currently doubted.

 

 Confirmation:  Undertaking research and investigations into the legitimacy of the provenance, history and prior ownership of a work of art and establishing its accuracy and legitimacy.


 Scrutiny: Examen minutieux:Identifying fake or faux works of art and forgeries, including any false supportive accompanying documentation and determining works of art which may be studio or later copies, or previously given incorrect attributions.

 Prosecution: Poursuite: Investigating alleged art fraud and forgery and assisting and advising those who are currently , or may be considering litigating or prosecuting the fact. This includes colleagues who are legal professionals and individual private clients.

 Attention:  Conducting all fine art related due diligence and duty of care inquiries. Including safe prepurchase or sale related audits and assisting clients in consolidating a well balanced future family distribution.

 

 Appraisal: Évaluation - Valuations, quality and condition reports.

The Pre-Authentication Assessment

 

    Before you begin any art authenticity, legitimacy, or artist attribution investigation, it is wise to have an impartial preliminary assessment of the viability of the project conducted first. One made to independently and rationally balance any negative issues there may be against the positive elements. You should treat this study as your initial safety net.

 We will be happy to professionally undertake this for you, based upon good quality images that you supply and all the known facts regarding its acquisition, the history and provenance of the work of art as is known to you.

You will then have a far better understanding of the prospects and pitfalls that could lie ahead.

ABOUT PAINTING DESCRIPTORS AND AUCTION TERMINOLOGY

Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema

 

  It is important to clearly understand auction terms that are used in any published descriptor, in order to be cautious of works that may just be painted in the manner of the artist, or even the stylized - would be copies of his works which bear a signature or monogram.

In this case if they were defining the paintings and drawings of the British artist Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema.

 

 Were the name, Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema is given with the first name/s and surname of the artist, usually cited as Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema then in their qualified and professional opinion they are in no doubt, it is the genuine and authentic item, one painted by the artist himself.

 When Attributed to Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema , or it is similarly written or used as ascribed to or Attrib, [abbreviated,] or ascribed to, then in their opinion it is 'probably' a work by the artist, at least in part. But... there is no guarantee. It is only an opinion.

 When Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema ; with the term “School of, or Studio of ….” or “Workshop of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema " or attelier of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema " is used, this means that in their opinion it is a work executed in the studio of the artist. Possibly by an apprentice or a pupil under the principal artists supervision and guidance.

 But if the term Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema circle of, or “Circle of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema ” is specifically used, then in their opinion, it is a work only of the period of the artist, but showing his influence, or someone closely associated with the artist, BUT not necessarily by his pupil or student.

 When the name is given thus; Painted in the “Style of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema ” or “Follower of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema is used, this means that in their opinion it is a work of art executed only in the artist’s way, his 'style', but not necessarily by a pupil. Yet it may be contemporary, or nearly contemporary of the artist.

 If the phrase in the “Manner of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema is used or is defined….” then in their opinion it is also only a work painted in the style of the artist, but of a later date and definitely not by the artist himself.

 When the term “After….Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema "; is the term used, then in their opinion it is a copy (made at any date) of an authentic and original work by the artist. This also applies to prints made 'after' an original work of art either by the artist himself or another artist/ printmaker..

 Signed - Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema ; “Dated….” or “Inscribed Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema ” Then in their opinion the work has been signed/dated/or inscribed by that specific artist. The addition of a question mark ? however, indicates a strong element of doubt.

 When the term 'bears signature', is used or the name, Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema is specified followed by the words; "With signature ….”, or “With date ….” or “With inscription….” or “Bears signature of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema /date/or inscription” Then in 'their opinion,' the signature / date / or inscription is spurious, forged or has been added by someone else other than the artist.

 

We can assist and advise you in all fine art related matters.
