Degas authentication experts original Degas

 

 

 


 

 Hilaire-Germain-Edgar Degas was a French painter and an artist who is often regarded as the true founder of the French impressionist artist movement.

 

 When thinking of the art of Degas, you would automatically associate him with the ballet  & dancers, soft portraits drawn in pastel, women at their toilette, images of laundry workers, cabaret singers and racecourse scenes.

 In essence, Edgar Degas works epitomise life in Paris where he was born and where he spent his life. But the majority of Degas fake works and forgeries on the open market today are undoubtedly based upon Degas fine ballet drawings made in pastel and equally, forgeries of his oil paintings.

Sadly, we see many examples of fake Degas art each year. Many of them naturally appearing for sale on internet sites such as Ebay. But an ever increasing and alarming amount of fake Edgar Degas works coming onto the market through small auction houses and estate sales across the world.

 


 

 


 

 

Edgar Degas Art Authentication Investigations

 

STEP ONE IN THE AUTHENTICATION  PROCESS - THE PRELIMINARY ASSESMENT OF VIABILITY STUDY

 

 

    We recommend that before entering into a full investigation of legitimacy of any work of art, it is essential to consider the viability of such a project realistically.

In that respect, we prefer to conduct a professional and unbias assessment of the work in question first. We consider it an important study to undertake, based upon your images, the details of the work of arts history and provenance as is known to you and any previous research that you may have already conducted.

It's one made to balance any obvious negativite points against the positive ones and to try and spot any obstacles that there may be waiting for us in its future pursuit.  It's a logical and cost effective professional assessment for which there is a modest set fee.

 

You will then be in a much better position to decide if the project is viable.

 British forger Tom Keating, the cheeky English faker of art, allegedly made dozens and dozens of fake Degas pastel drawings and many Degas paintings in his long career.  All are works of art which he signed with the famous name, 'Degas.'

Like the Degas fake ballet dancers illustrated here to the right >

Another four fake Edgar Degas drawings appear below.

   Other Edgar Degas fakes & forgeries are very convincing indeed. Winning over opinion easily with art investors and Degas admirers keen to acquire what they believe is an original Degas painting or drawing.

 Take a look at these quite good examples of Edgar Degas works below...both of which are fakes!

Degas, fake or legitimate sculpture?

Degas, fake or legitimate sculpture?

 

 The majority of fake Edgar Degas paintings and drawings that we see and in particular Degas pastel studies, are relatively new compositions. Works which are often based on single elements chosen from within an already authenticated major Degas art work. Perhaps just one figure plucked from within it and then replicated. As in the drawings to the left below

This type of forgery is designed to make the purchaser believe it is a genuine Degas, created as a preliminary study and made prior to the major work by the artist being effected.

In fact, it's the other way around. The finished Degas article comes first.... then along come the fakesbased on it.

Clever or not, it is still a crime and a deception. Acriminal act, deservedly prosecuted internationally.
