Elisabeth-Louise Vigée Le Brun

(Paris 1755-1842)

French Painter

 

 

 Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun achieved remarkable success quite early in her artistic career. As a portraitist, she had the unique skill of capturing the true likeness of her sitters in an elegant and highly flattering, yet sensitive way and always whilst wearing the most stylish clothing available.

 Like her contemporary Parisienne artist Anne Vallayer-Coster, her patrons and clients were from within the French royal court and those families of noble and wealthy aristocracy, including Queen Marie Antoinette who it is known she painted at least thirty times.

So much in demand, Le Brun ran a busy atelier and workshop. Fleeing Paris after the French Revolution, she worked abroad, only returning to the city some twelve years later to continue once again with her portrait painting. Vigée Le Brun left a legacy of some 660 portraits and 200 landscapes.

 Even so, original examples of Elisabeth-Louise Vigée Le Brun works have become increasingly rare with the passage of time, with so many now in the permanent collections of the principal galleries and museums around the world. So they began to climb steeply in value in the art market and with that there is always a risk.

 

 There are always going to be anonymous paintings which are expertly attributed to a given name or studio. In the main this is a skilled and expert judgement made with acute academic soundness, integrity and highly detailed comparative study and research. But of growing concern is that there are other artist attributions less well considered, with some attributors second guessing and others falsely misattributing a work of art to deceive a potential buyer.

 

 Other works of art that arrive for consideration can be very similar indeed to a particular artist and these are often described as being from within the artists direct 'circle' of influence. Usually they display a greater similarity in style and quality of their artistic handling, but there are also paintings created by an artists 'followers' to consider in the attribution equation and these can be quite different beasts.

These are created primarily by people working in a similar style or manner to an artist they admire and they tend to use compatible subject matter and technique.  But these works can also be from an amateur hand, even a student of the arts variation or study and such works lend themselves to be used to pass off as legitimate by adding signatures or monograms, or even false studio or atelier stamps to them to become more convincing.

 The terminology used in descriptions of a work of art are explained in greater detail further on this page and it is worth remembering that with each quite specific semantic variation, there is always a distinct difference with the finite value of the piece.

Important is to be able to distinguish between those works that were actually executed by an artist, to those either 'claiming' to be, or that we are told were created by the artist in question as an attribution, which in reality is only an opinion.

Therefore there is a need to be able to identify those works of art that are actually authentic and those that are illegitimate.

 So the questions will remain, is a newly discovered work of art a legitimate example of the artists œuvre, is an already applied attribution to that artist appropriate and correct and is the description of a work of art itself reliable and ultimately sound? 

In any of these respects we can certainly help you.

Art Authentication & Attribution Investigations

 

 

   The duration and the direction of any authenticity investigation or inquiry into 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 given expert on that 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 formally 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 own 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 well balanced future family distribution.

 

  •  Appraisal: Évaluation -  Valuations and condition reports.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step one in the Art Authentication and Attribution process.

The Pre-Authentication Assessment

 

 

 

 We strongly advise clients before embarking on a full investigation of legitimacy or an artist or studio attribution inquiry, that it is wise to have an impartial preliminary assessment conducted first. One made to balance any issues that may be present that could make the longer term exercise unviable.

 This is a professional advisory service that we provide, based upon the images you supply, the full details of work of arts acquisition, its history and provenance as is known to you, along with sight of any documentation, previous research or analysis that you may have had formerly conducted on it. You should then have a far better understanding of both the prospects or any pitfalls we might face, before making a decision.

This is a logical and cost effective professional review and advisory for which there is a modest set fee.

ABOUT A WORK OF ARTS DESCRIPTOR AND TERMINOLOGY

 

  *It is very important to clearly understand the auction terms that are commonly used in any published descriptor and to be cautious of works that may just be created in the 'manner of' the artist, or those which could be variants of the artists works of art that 'bear a signature' or monogram. In this case as if they were defining the creations of the artist; Elisabeth-Louise Vigée Le Brun (Paris 1755-1842) French

 

  •  Where the name, Elisabeth-Louise Vigée Le Brun (1755-1842) , is given with the first name/s and surname of the artist, usually cited as, Elisabeth-Louise Vigée Le Brun - (1755-1842),  including her dates to be specific, then in their qualified and professional opinion, they are in no doubt. It is a genuine and authentic item and one painted by that artist. This is usually fully qualified by its inclusion in any catalogue raissone, or by the guarantee of the opinion given by appropriate and internationally recognized expert authority on the artist.
  •  When , Elisabeth-Louise Vigée Le Brun - (1755-1842) is the term used, or it is similarly defined as Attrib. to ' [abbreviated,] or Attribue, 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 that it 'possibly' may be by the artist.
  •  But if the term Elisabeth-Louise Vigée Le Brun (1755-1842) - circle of, entourage, or “Circle of ” Elisabeth-Louise Vigée Le Brun - (1755-1842) is specifically used, then in their opinion, it is a work only of the period of the artist, but showing their influence. Or by someone closely associated with the artist, BUT not necessarily by their pupil or student.
  •  When the name is given thus; Painted in the “Style of or “Follower of Elisabeth-Louise Vigée Le Brun (1755-1842) is used, this means that in their opinion it is a work of art executed only in the artist’s way, their 'style', but not necessarily by a pupil. Yet it may be a contemporary, or nearly a contemporary of the artist.
  •  If the phrase in the “Manner Elisabeth-Louise Vigee Le Brun 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 as named.
  •  When the term “After….Elisabeth-Louise Vigée Le Brun "; 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 or another artist/ printmaker.
  •  Signed - Elisabeth-Louise Vige Le Brun ; “Dated….” or “Inscribed ” 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, Elisabeth-Louise Vigee Le Brun is specified followed by the words; "With signature ….”, or “With date ….” or “With inscription….” or “Bears signature of Elisabeth-Louise Vigée Le Brun /date/or inscription” Then in 'their opinion,' either the signature / date / or inscription is spurious, forged or has been added by someone else other than the artist.
