Jean-Honoré Fragonard  - French 1732-1806

 

                                       

      Shepherdess  by Jean-Honore Fragonard

 

 

 The French romantic Rococo painter, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, was principally known best for his sensual paintings of the French aristocracy, usually set in their pursuit of pleasure and sensual self-indulgence.

As an artist, Fragonard was a specialist in creating landscapes made in dreams, but also for painting fine portraits.

He began a new style and fashion in its time that would be widely emulated by those around him and works, wrongly attributed to the great man must exist today.

 You would not expect Fragonard to be actually faked these days, but he was back then and has been in modern times. You only have to read recent reports about dozens of so called 'legitimate' Fragonard drawings being labelled as forgeries and other major works of art being withdrawn from major auctions, believed or suspected now to be fakes, to understand the scale of the problem.


One recently reported case included the rather rash attempt to sell a Fragonard fake to a middle eastern billionaire. 

 Below is a copy of a Fragonard, easily believed to be legitimate and if presented as authentic and the seller has the forged provenance and aging right, it adds to the issue. 

So the confusion now lies in what exactly it is you may have? There is a distinct difference in qualification and in what a description actually tells you. 'By Fragonard' is straightforward, it means all are satisfied that it is a legitimate work. But ;attributed to; is an opinion  only. It may be someone from his studio perhaps, or from within his circle? Is it a copy, made then or now, or something created by a follower, in his style or a fake Fragonard, that is the puzzle?

    EXPERT IN THE FINE ART OF AUTHENTICATION

Authentication:  Investigating, with a view to establishing a fully, internationally accepted, well proven and correctly underpinned certification of a work of art.

 Attribution:  Identifying and confirming the previously anonymous artist, studio or workshop from which a work of art likely first originated. One which may not have been previously known or formerly identified beforehand.

 Revision:  Re examining and investigating an erstwhile ascribed historical artist attribution which is possibly incorrect, or one that has been formally challenged.

 Confirmation:  Conducting the archival research required in investigating and confirming the provenance, lineage and prior history of ownership of a work of art internationally.

 Scrutiny:  Identifying premeditated fakes and forgeries, determining those which may be studio or later student copies, or previously misrepresented or wrongful attributions.

 Prosecution:  Investigating an alleged art fraud and forgery and assisting and advising those litigating or prosecuting the fact.

 Attention:  Conducting all fine art related due diligence and duty of care enquiries, prepurchase or sale related studies and advising in matters of consolidating safe future family distribution.

 

 

 

  Simply put, we are here to help in all fine art related matters.

 

 

 

 

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 the project first. In that respect, we prefer to conduct a professional, unbias assessment of the merits of the work in question at the start. An important primary study and 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.

 

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 judge if the project is worthwhile.
