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 vital to consider the viability of the project first. In that respect, we prefer to conduct a preliminary professional and unbias assessment of the merits of the work in question. This is an important study 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 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.

   The Dutch Golden age of painting brought its finest of master craftsmen to the helm and right at the front of the list of Dutch Old Masters of the finest and purest kind was Leiden artist Gerrit Dou, born (Gerard Dou)

  Trained by Rembrandt, his small superlatively crafted paintings were photographic in quality. So admired was the Leiden artist Gerrit Dou, that he was soon to be emulated, copied and faked to a dramatic degree, even employing members of his own family to keep up with production demands, leaving us with a legacy of art authentication problems to sort out in the 21st century.

  Gerrit Dou's masterpieces depicting typical Dutch genre scenes, often in his own inimitable arched format were highly regarded and collected by European Monarchs and wealthy collectors across the Continent and varying quality degrees of similarly painted works of art were suddenly available, driven by massive commercial demand.

 The problem of sorting out the authentic from the copies, the copies from the fakes and forgeries and the followers interpretations are left to experts to determine.

  We see far more fakes and copies of Golden Age works, than they do real Gerard Dou masterpieces, innocently and not so innocently turning up quite regularly at auctions and in art galleries around the world.
