  We are very proud to have helped and advised both private individuals and corporate clients throughout the State of Tennessee and around the world for over 45 years. Specializing in conducting investigations into the authenticity of art and pursuing complicated inquiries into the attribution of anonymous artists works, we also investigate the legitimacy of historical provenance and lineage of ownership internationally.

 Our workload includes the art of all genres, types and eras, including Old and Modern masters of European origin, American art and international impressionism through to both modern and contemporary art.

  We research and scrutinize individual works of art and complete collections for clients on site in order to identify any legitimacy issues or conflict. These professional duties fall into clearly defined services that we can certainly assist you with:

 

   
   

        

 

  • Authentication: Conducting confidential art authenticity investigations with a view to establishing a complete and internationally recognized, well proven and correctly underpinned formal certification of the work of art. Generally requiring international in-depth academic archival research and forensic applications in any full investigation.

  • AttributionIdentifying and confirming an anonymous artist, studio or workshop from which a work of art may most likely have first originated. Usually an attribution which may not have been previously known of, or formerly identified.

  • ConfirmationConducting the archival research required in investigating and confirming the provenance, prior history and previous line of ownership of a work of art.

  • Revision: Re-examining and investigating an erstwhile, previously ascribed historical artist's attribution which is incorrect. One otherwise doubted, or one that has been formally challenged.

  • ScrutinyIdentifying deliberate fakes and forgeries and determining those which may be studio or later student copies, formerly misrepresented, or wrongful attributions.

  • Prosecution: Investigating any alleged art fraud and forgery issue and assisting and
    advising those prosecuting the fact. Be that criminally or legally.

  • AttentionConducting all art related due diligence and duty of care inquiries, including prepurchase or sale related studies and assisting private individuals in matters of consolidating future family distribution.

A brief history of art in Tennessee.

 

 Tennessee landscapes were perhaps the earliest art of preference in the State and in general were topographical views, in reality, portraits of places. But Tennessee sported a large number of fine premier portraitists too and also miniature portrait painters abounded. But the first inhabitants of Tennessee to have their portraits painted were, surprisingly Cherokee Indians from the Overhill towns, such as Standing Turkey ( know as Cune Shote) below.

           

 

 Many artists who travelled here to Tennessee, came to paint landscapes including Charles-Alexandre Lesueur, the Frenchman who drew sketches of the Mississippi and Cumberland Rivers in 1828 and 1832. But the greatest of all Tennessee panoramic landscape artist was arguably James Cameron who arrived in Knoxville and then Chattanooga shortly before the Civil War and an illusive artist called James Wagner of whom there is little or nothing known today.

       

^ James Cameron                                      ^ James Wagner about 1850      

 

 The subjects of Tennessee portraits were wide ranging but included Tennessee Governors, Masters of the Grand Masonic Lodge, Confederate and some Union generals. The principals of colleges, Directors and presidents of banks and foundations, as well as individual wealthy capitalists and professionals.

 But the Civil War virtually ended the art market in Tennessee and many of her artists either seriously struggled to survive, or just faded away. But with the war behind them, now for the very first time, Tennessee suddenly had a market for still lifes and “Negro studies,” such as those completed by Carl Gutherz after his return to the State from Paris in 1873 and landscape and genre painting in the French Barbizon school style became highly fashionable. There was also a growth in the popularity of genre painting and in particular, historical genre painting such as those painted by Gilbert Gaul, the first Tennessee artist of stature who did not paint portraits at all. Scenes from early Tennessee history became popular.

 

The Overmountain men

 Another transformation in Tennessee art was the radical emergence of the professional woman artist in Tennessee. Lead by Adelia Lutz, who had trained in France and settled in Knoxville to begin a career painting portraits, landscapes and flowers, particularly hollyhocks. Impressionism followed.

AUTHENTICITY CERTIFICATION

CERTIFICACIÓN DE AUTENTICIDAD DE ARTE

 

 

 * In the final analysis, the authenticity of a work of art must be addressed, ultimately judged and pronounced upon as authentic or otherwise, only by those individuals or bodies that are legally empowered and fully recognized internationally as the absolute authority on the artist to do so. No other form of approval or certification, from any other source, is accepted as being either absolute, safe or reliable.

 

Be very cautious if you are told differently.

***

 

 

 Leading experts in our field, we confidentially conduct the academic duties, studies and forensic processes required in the pursuit  of international art authentication, preparing a case ready for final presentation to that specific authority for the client.

 Our clear intent is to pursue and establish a flawless case that can lead us to an ultimate and accurate confirmation of authenticity, or an artist attribution that is both internationally recognized and unanimously accepted. 

 

There is no half measure and you would not expect less.

The Art Authentication Process - before you begin

     

  Before entering into a full investigation of authenticity or legitimacy, it is essential to know if the project is viable enough for you to justify that pursuit. Logically, if it is not, you should not attempt it.

 So before you start, we prefer to conduct a preliminary professional pre-authentication assessment for clients first.   This is a well reasoned, independent study and one based upon your images you supply and all the known details of its acquisition, provenance and history.

In our experience, it is a vitally important study and your safety net, that allows for a balanced and rational measure of the risks, facts and requirements that may lie ahead. 

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

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