International Authentication & Attribution Investigations into artworks believed to be by

Vincent Willem van Gogh

Vincent van Gogh

Dutch post-impressionist painter

 

 

 

 

 It is not necessary to reproduce a biography of van Gogh and his life here. The world knows that he holds a primary place in the history of western art. With the exception of saying , he was a painter of hugely regarded influence and a key player in the post impressionist movement and an artist whose works are beyond being exceptionally valuable.

 Long lost paintings and more recently discovered works of art that are actually painted by Vincent van Gogh himself are extremely rare and such works seldom, if ever appear on the art market. More common however, are works attributed to his hand, either historically, or recently and other pictures made by others from within his circle. More usually, paintings by his followers, being passed off as his, working in his unique impressionistic style and with this brings a risk.

 Is an attribution to Vincent van Gogh and the description of a work of art reliable and sound?

 A favourite ploy when it comes to creating Vincent van Gogh fakes, is to use an image or theme stolen from 'within' one of his known legitimate works of art, in order to create 'new' studies in paint or pastel or crayon. A good example is this below, which we investigated for a client.

   

Fake van Gogh watercolour

^The original van Gogh oil painting

'Bridges across the Seine at Asnieres from 1887'

^ An alleged letter to van Gogh's friend Paul Gauguin containing what the seller wanted us to believe was an earlier watercolour sketch version of the painting 'Bridges across the Seine at Asnieres, 1887' as seen on the left.

 

 

 

 This form of trickery is designed to make us believe that this is a previously undiscovered van Gogh, in this case a preliminary study and one made before a particular well known painting was executed.

 Suffice as to say, nearly all of the van Gogh paintings that we investigate, be they watercolours or oil paintings, have a remarkable story to tell.

That the painting is an undiscovered van Gogh bought in a flea market in Amsterdam back in the nineteen forties, or it's a long lost van Gogh found in an old trunk in an attic, inevitably in Amsterdams Centrum neighborhood.

 

 On average each year, we investigate the legitimacy of several 'newly discovered' paintings or drawings believed to be by Vincent van Gogh for various clients around the world, both private individuals and corporate clients.

Unfortunately, most of these newly found van Gogh treasures, can be readily identified as relatively new van Gogh fakes.

  It is very important to be able to distinguish between those works actually executed by an artist such as Vincent van Gogh compared to those 'claiming' to be by him, or rather that we are told are by him and there are three kinds of attribution;

 The well worked out, thoroughly academically researched, scholarly type. The poorly informed guesses and finally, the deliberate attempts of deception. Included in this is the adding of signatures, monograms or inscriptions to otherwise anonymous works effected in a generally similar manner to a particular artist and devised to impress a potential purchaser that they are by him. And this by far the most common form of fraud we see.

*****

 As an international specialist fine art consultancy, with bases in the UK and Europe, we have been confidentially serving both private individuals and corporate clients around the world for over 45 years. Investigating both single works of art and complete collections for clients alongside conducting in-depth authentication and legitimacy investigations, as well as full academic and forensic investigations with multilingual archival research into the origins of all old and modern master works of art. From from different geographical regions and periods. We also scrutinize and research the provenance and ownership lineage.

 We are able to assist and advise you in all fine art related matters, particularly issues of authenticity and attribution, including the works of van Gogh and any other works of art that you are keen to learn about.

 Some various example works of art associated with his name appear below as illustrations. 

 Note: No inference is made, nor is it intended as to the question of legitimacy here. Moreover these are an across the board representational view of the differing types of works that are from within the public domain and or, may in the future be offered and advertised for sale at auction internationally.

'Daubigny's Garden' is now believed to have been

painted by van Gogh's friend Paul Gachet & no

Vincent van Gogh

 

 

 

Well recorded, is the controversy reigning for many years regarding the authenticity of some forty oil paintings previously attributed to van Gogh and believed by some van Gogh art experts to be fakes. These works of art may in fact actually have been executed by one of Vincent van Gogh's pupils. Charles Hermans, Anton Kerrsemarkers or Willem van de Wakker, or even by someone else within van Goghs circle.

Someone who may have deliberately faked variations of van Gogh's paintings.

But this is a controversial view and if so, a fraud was effected right back the turn of the last century. Scholars and expert historians alike though, still challenge and raise issues about these questioned van Gogh's and presumably will continue to do so.

Fine Art Authentication

 

 

 The duration and the direction of any authenticity investigation or an attribution 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 formally assist you with, including:

 

  • Authentication: Authentification:   Conducting comprehensive investigations and in depth research into a work of art with a view to establishing a correct, complete and formally recognized certification. One absolutely upheld by the appropriate, legally acknowledged and internationally sanctioned authority, body or expert on that given artist. Directing detailed and complicated inquiries, with multilingual capability, including any international academic research and 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 and condition reports.

 

 

 

 

Step one in the Art Authentication and Attribution process.

The Pre-Authentication Assessment

 

    Before you begin any 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. You should treat this study as a safety net.

 We will be happy to professionally undertake this for you, based upon good quaity 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 indeed the possible pitfalls that could lie ahead.
