AUTHENTICATION

 

 

 

 We are British based fine art specialists conducting authenticity and attribution investigations into paintings and drawings believed to be by the English artist

John Constable.

 


  This man on the right, was one of the most famous names in British Art History.

Acclaimed for his English landscapes painted in rich oils such as the Haywain and Dedham Mill, many do not know that he excelled at painting portraits of people too and at this he earned his living, at least in his early years. Painting portrait commissions for the landed gentry and wealthy merchants of Britain.

 We see paintings of all kinds and quaities claiming to be by John Constable each year and it has to be said, many of them are signed, at least in his name.

The problem is that his style was so emulated by artists of the time due to his commercial status and the public demand for his product, that many previously unsigned works by his followers 'magically' developed the famous Constable signature during their journey through time and actually have nothing to do with John Constable at all.  Sadly, they are a product of dubious dealers who added the Constable signature to increase value, but in reality, to deceive and eventually defraud a buyer.

 As art authentication investigation experts investigating Constable pictures for over four decades now, we see a lot of this sort of art fraud.

John Constable Fakes

 

 

 

Fake Constable by clever British forger Tom Keating

 A modern day forger of John Constable was an artist called Tom Keating. The lovable British rogue to many, a crook to even more. Even though he did leave valuable clues as to the real legitimacy of his 'Constable variations' literally 'on' the painting. Read up on him yourselves.

In reality, it's not known just how many Constable fakes Keating introduced to the art market and how many of them have been identified as fakes, but Keating was good at what he did and went on to make a TV series in which one programme was dedicated to how to paint just like Constable!

Today, believe it or not, even Keating's fakes are faked !

The variation in the subject matter and style of John Constable's works as he developed, is vast. Ranging from portraiture to architectural studies in pen and ink on paper. From animal paintings, to mountainous landscapes, even beach and marine scenes.
  Academic opinion alone is seldom sufficient iwhen it comes to the authentication of art. So too is signature verification, as many John Constable works have been left unsigned. Some are fully signed and more just initialled. Forensics therefore justifiably can have a major part to play in the authentication process of works climing to be by John Constable.

       
       

 

 


Some advise before pursuing complex John Constable art authentication issues.

                   

John Constable painted Portraits, seascapes, landscapes, drew in pen and ink wash, made marine works and floral studies

 

 

 

STEP ONE IN THE AUTHENTICATION  PROCESS - 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 John Constable, it is essential to consider its viability realistically.

 

With this in mind, we prefer to conduct a preliminary, professional pre-authentication assessment of the work in question for clients first. It's an important study and advisory, based upon the images you supply, the 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, if there is any.

It's conducted aiming to balance any obvious negative issue against the positive ones that are immediately recognisable and whatever requirements that there may be that are necessary in its future pursuit.

It's a logical and cost effective professional assessment for which there is a modest set fee.

Then you will 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.
