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

Joan Mitchell

(1925-1992)

American "second generation" abstract expressionist painter and printmaker.

 

 

 As the values of her works of art have soared in recent years, the greater is the need for confirming legitimacy.  As such, any of the believed to be Joan Mitchell works of art that do come to light, will require a comprehensive investigation of their authenticity to be absolutely certain they are, or for confirmation that any previously given expert attribution is indeed correct.

 The provenance and history associated with a work of art is always a critical issue in the authentication process and must be scrutinized to determine if it too is valid, reliable and sound. Or that any description of a work of art claiming to be by a specific artist is correct and can truly be relied upon.

 When an artists works are highly sought after and make substantial sums at auction as Joan Mitchells works do, attempts at imitation by forgery is an obvious result. The simple ploy for the nefariously minded, is to add a signature, monogram, or forged studio stamp, even a persuasive inscription or gallery label to a previously anonymous work. This is usually one of a similar nature, manner or style of the artist that is claiming to be by, yet one that was created by an anonymous follower and this is the most common form of forgery and criminal deception we see.  But with some artists, creating brand new variants in their style is the reason the faker exists.

Fine Art and Authentication

 

   The duration and direction of any attribution or investigation into the authenticity of an old or modern master 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 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.

 

 

 

 

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 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 indeed the possible pitfalls that could lie ahead.

ABOUT A PAINTINGS DESCRIPTOR AND ITS TERMINOLOGY

 

  *It is important to very clearly understand the auction terms that are used in any published descriptor and be cautious of works that may just be painted in the manner of the artist, or even by stylized - would be copies or variants of works which bear a signature or monogram. In this case if they were defining the paintings and or drawings of the American abstract artist Joan Mitchell (1925-1992)

 

  •  Where the name, Joan Mitchell is given with the first name/s and surname of the artist, usually cited as Joan Mitchell, then in their qualified and professional opinion they are in no doubt, it is the genuine and authentic item, one painted by the artist.
  •  When Attributed to Joan Mitchell, or it is similarly used as 'Attrib, to' [abbreviated,] or Attribué à, 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.
  •  But if the term Joan Mitchell circle of, or “Circle of Joan Mitchell ” 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 Joan Mitchell ” or “Follower of Joan Mitchell 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 of Joan Mitchell 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….Joan Mitchell "; 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 - Joan Mitchell ; “Dated….” or “Inscribed Joan Mitchell ” 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, Joan Mitchell is specified followed by the words; "With signature ….”, or “With date ….” or “With inscription….” or “Bears signature of Joan Mitchell /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.

 

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