Constantin Brancusi was a Romanian abstract sculptor and one of the most dynamic and revolutionary sculptors to emerge in the 20th century. With some fine art commentators and critics proclaiming that Constantin Brancusi was frankly the best ever.

BUT alongside Auguste Rodin, Constantin Brancusi happens to be one of the most faked sculptors in the world.

Constantin Brancusi: International  Sculpture  Authentication Investigations:

 

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 the Romanian  sculptor Constantin Brancusi, it is essential to consider issue of viability.

 

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

An important 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 or analysis that you may have formerly conducted on it.

It will be unbiased and aiming to consider any negative or positive issues that are immediately recognisable and whatever the future requirements that may be necessary in its pursuit. Balancing all the risks involved in progressing an authenticity investigation. 

It's 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 or not.

 

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

RECENT   BRANCUSI   FAKES  - A WARNING

 

 Brancusi sculpture authentication

 

 

 

 

 *Many small fake stone sculptures have arrived on the scene in recent years.

In the main it seems, they come from Romania itself. Nearly always supported by copious amounts of 'professional' looking authenticity documentation, very trendy, almost believable academic theoretics and highly inventive provenances. Common denominator? They are usually put together by a hitherto 'self proclaimed Brancusi expert' in support of the authenticity of the piece.

 

REMEMBER: Both the documents and the stories are totally fabricated lies, just like the sculptures, so beware !

 

 One highly successful Italian based attempt at selling Brancusi forgeries in North America was underway with seven fake sculptures recently bought by a Canadian consortium of investors who wrongly believed them to be authentic. Now a second Italian based Brancusi art fraud has been brought to our attention, supported by the same form of fake COA's - various authenticity documentation and reasonably credible, but completely fake backgrounds and histories as usual.

 In  just over one single year, we were instructed to investigate no less than twelve separate incidents where fake or forged sculptures, believed to be by Constantin Brancusi have been passed off as original Brancusi works, in major art fraud attempts in North America. Canada particularly was targeted but also Europe.

The 13th fake Brancusi issue landed on our desk recently.

Another case, currently operational in Romania is pending, so there is a real and current problem with Brancusi fakes abounding. Clearly with more and more yet to surface.

 

 All of the Brancusi sculptures we have investigated to date, have proved to be illicit, yet were supported by copious amounts of what was believed to be positive authentication documentation and from the once powerful and believed to be 'spotless' Brancusi scholar.

He was a Romanian who was 'the' expert. The all knowing and determining expert on Brancusi's works, but is now discredited and exposed as a charlatan, believed by some to be behind the whole re-emergence of what are proving to be Brancusi forgeries.

But the true extent of the international Brancusi fake scam may never be known.

 Interestingly, apart form obvious Romanian connections, Germany and now Italy, recently come into play with the supply of fake Constantin Brancusi sculptures internationally.

 

 

 

WARNING 2:

 Beware of small, crudely produced river stone carvings with similarities to Brancusi's style. They are always passed off with the same remarkably believable stories of how trustworthily they were obtained back in the 'homeland' by someone from the family who knew Brancusi personally!

 Remember too that Brancusi was exquisite in his creation of sculptural line, form and rhythm. Technically, his work was and is quite remarkable.

*So if the Brancusi sculpture you are looking at is in any way crude.....leave it and walk away, or better still, come to us for advice.

 


 

 

The Romanian and Italian led Brancusi art frauds:

 

 The modus operandi of a Constantin Brancusi sculpture fraud is remarkably similar in nearly all cases:

 Firstly, they ( a seller or sellers ) approach a respectable company or business man with the proposition to front a loan against the collateral of a Constantin Brancusi work of art -worth afortune of course. Usually they are small pieces, fully authenticated on paper by 'the' so called expert, but with the added promise of the seller buying it back, settling a purchase deal when their deal comes off and it all seems pretty sound.

 Constantin Brancusi river stone works are a favourite ploy in the scam, the accompanying story being that they are part of a group of very early works by Brancusi 'only recently discovered' in a village where he worked as a young man.

End of story: It's boloney.

*Sadly Freemanart are unable and somewhat reluctant, rather than unwilling to show you images of the Constantin Brancusi forgeries and fake documentation we have discovered. Neither can we divulge the name, or the names of the people involved with the frauds, scams and fakery.

 

This is because of the international laws of liable and breach of confidentiality are protecting them.

 

Surely this is the wrong way around  ?

 


 

Massive scale faking of reproduction Brancusi Bronzes

 

 

 On top of the works of art purportedly by Brancusi which have been fabricated and faked back in Romania, there are other fakers, of greater international standing and notoriety have surfaced in recent years.

 

Most recently in Britain, a forger called Shaun Greenhaigh was charged and convicted of fabricating a Brancusi sculpture which was sold to a very dignified source.

 

 Guy Hain on the other hand, a Frenchman who went to prison for his massive fraud worth $60 million dollars plus, was up to his eyeballs in dodgy doings when 2,500 moulds and models for Brancusi reproduction bronzes were seized from his studio and confiscated by police.

 

It is still believed that up to 4,000 works of art found their way onto the art market via art dealers and auction houses, knowingly or otherwise. Granted, they were not all Brancusi's.

A good spread of other bronze forgeries however were evident from other artists such as Jean Arp, Carpeaux, Barye and Alberto Giacometti whose works, like Brancusi's fetch millions today.

VERY WORRYING!

 

Brancusi Commercial reproduction

 

Remember that Brancusi sculptures similar to this are commercial replicas and not the real Mc Coy!

Available on line with a starting bid of $2,500 and an auction estimate of $6,500 - $7,500.

Remember...it's missing a couple of zero's if it were to be real!
