Investigating the Authenticity of Paintings & Drawings believed to be by or attributed to;

James Abbott McNeill Whistler

1834 - 1903

 

American Painter, etcher, draughtsman, lithographer, watercolourist and author of critical essays

AKA J. A. M. Whistler, James A. McNeill Whistler

 

 Whistler left the USA as a boy and studied in Paris, latterly in the studio of Charles-Gabriel Gleyre but moved to London in 1859 and created a well received set of etchings of the Thames. Yet he faced the brunt of criticism from art critics about his subtly painted landscapes called nocturnes. He was captivated by atmosphere and painted hundreds of thin, diluted compositions in watercolour on paper for some 15 years following his arrival in London. He was a great admirer of Turner's work in this respect.

 Whistler is probably best known for his sentimental portrait of his mother, Arrangement in Gray and Black No.1. But he also worked in pastel, painted portraits, studies of models in the studio and created many views of Venetian palaces.

Finding a significant link between art and music, Whistler entitled many of his paintings with musical names.

Creating an apt signature for his paintings in his own mind, he used the shape of a stylized butterfly with a a long stinger for a tail.

Easily imitated, his work is extensively faked.

Some examples of images readily available on the internet tell their own story.

Step one in the Art Authentication and Attribution process.

The Pre-Authentication Assessment.

 Before you begin any art authenticity, legitimacy, or any artist attribution investigation, it is more than 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. Treat it as your safety net.

 We will be happy to professionally undertake that study for you as a primary safety net, based upon good quaity images that you supply and all the known facts regarding its acquisition, the history and provenance of the work as is known to you.

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