Authenticating  the Art of Antoine Bouvard

 

STEP ONE - THE PRELIMINARY ASSESMENT OF VIABILITY STUDY

 

    We recommend that before entering into a full investigation of legitimacy or possible attribution of any work of art believed to be by any of the Bouvard family, it is essential to consider the issues of viability.

 

So we prefer to undertake a preliminary professional pre-authentication assessment of the work in question for clients first.

This is a professional study and advisory, based upon the images you supply, the full details of the work of arts history and provenance as is known to you and any previous research that you may have formerly conducted on it.

It will be an unbiased study, aiming to consider any positive or negative issues that are immediately recognisable and whatever the future requirements are that may be necessary. Balancing the risks involved in pursuing authenticity. 

A logical and cost effective professional assessment for which there is a modest set fee.

You will then be in a far better position to judge if the project is actually worth undertaking.

 

Please see our FAQ's which explains this process in detail.

ABOUT THE BOUVARDS

 

   Antoine Bouvard fell in love with Venice, its light and its architecture, that's obvious. He was a master at capturing it.

Well taught by his mentor, Ruben Santoro and choosing his target market well for his Italian compositions, the commercial side of him kicked in and he stuck to it all his life.

 

 Antoine Bouvard was firstly an architect but also a talented French artist and painter.

For many, he was the most highly regarded artist amongst the Venetian genre.   Also mentor and tutor to both of his artist children; Noel Bouvard and Colette Bouvard.  They, with their father's commercial eye for an art market still eager to buy Venetian scenes, painted not only in the same manner as Antoine Bouvard senior, but even used the same compositions and recorded the same places. Much the same as Cortes was doing in Paris. The only discernible difference to the normal man in the street between father and siblings, being a qualitative measure that most wouldn't spot

 But even Antoine Bouvard Senior varied his quality of painting too, urged on by the owner of a Nice gallery to paint more and more of the same types of Venetian landscapes, mainly canals and back waters, but less expensively. Aimed this time at a different niche market.

So under the pseudonym of Marc Aldine, more and more works came along from the busy Bouvard studio.

 

 Its a complicated puzzle as Eloi Noel Bouvard and Marc Aldine are both different pseudonyms of the French artist Eloi Noel Beraud.

That's also Antoine by birth, if you still follow me?

 So the tourists on the Grand Tour of Europe were a profitable market for Bouvard when they visited Venice and they in turn, over time passed on, houses were cleared and onto the market came the Bouvard souvenirs they bought. Now a very respectable collectible investment indeed

 

 

 

 

 In 2011 at Christies Auctions in London, 2 paintings by Noel Georges Bouvard - Gondoliers before the Rialto bridge and a sister work, came under the hammer with an estimate of £4,000 each. Realising GBP  £25,000.00

 For many years from the 70's on, you could buy a respectable Bouvard for a thousand or even less, but even back then I remember seeing many substandard works, including fakes and plenty of copies bearing the famous Bouvard name, hanging on the walls of 'less responsible' provincial art auction sale rooms.

Armed with a UV black light, time and again an added Bouvard signature placed on an otherwise follower of Bouvard's painting, bounced around in the UV spectrum as if it were added yesterday morning, nd it probably was!

 So we have a conundrum for Bouvard buyers, Bouvard collectors and just plain lovers of Bouvard's works. Remember they all signed with just the surname!

 Do you have a legitimate painting by Antoine Bouvard, a painting by Noel Georges Bouvard, a painting by Colette Bouvard, or a work by someone painting in their style with an added name to attract and deceive a buyer?

And have you been?
