The Authentication and Investigation of Irish Art and Research into Irish Artist Attributions.

 

 

  The Freemanart Consultancy's expertise and experience of Irish art and its history, now nears forty three years professionally conducting and directing both academic and forensic investigations into Irish art and her artists for clients around the world.

 

  Principally, our function when serving our clients is operating as a unique international fine art consultancy specialising in art authentication issues, and this has fallen into neatly defined professional actions, responsibilities, services and categories:

 

 

NATURE MORTE, c.1909 by Roderic O'Conor

 

 

  • Authentication: Investigation towards establishing an internationally accepted and fully recognised authentication of a work of art. Including those paintings and works of art with a signatorial claim, belief or a well evidenced, or earlier qualification of legitimacy and authenticity. Along with those without 
    [Fully international, academic, archival and forensic applications & investigations.]

 

  • Attribution: Identifying and confirming an anonymous artist, studio or workshop from which an unsigned and thus, unqualified work of art originated. One not formerly known or previously identified.

 

 

  • Revision Re-examining & investigating an erstwhile, previously ascribed historical artist's attribution which is incorrect. Otherwise doubted, or has been formally challenged.



  • Confirmation: Conducting detailed investigative research and the full investigation of the provenance, lineage and history of ownership of a work of art.


  • Scrutiny: Identifying deliberate fakes & forgeries and determining those works which are studio or later student copies, or previously misrepresented and wrongful attributions.

 

  • Prosecution: Investigating alleged art fraud, fakes and forgery and assisting those prosecuting the fact.  Be that legal, civil or criminal.


  • Attention: Conducting all art related due diligence studies and duty of care enquiries. Including prepurchase or brokerage study and matters related to instilling confidence in future family distribution.

 

James Arthur O'Connor (Irish, 1792–1841)  
   
   

 

 

  With a huge upsurge in recent years of the value of Irish art sold both at auction and in galleries in Eire and across the world, it isn't surprising that there has been an equal, if not greater occurrence of Irish art forgery and art fraud attempts and indeed criminal successes in the art market.

 When a good Roderic O'Connor impressionist painting can fetch well over £100,000 at auction and his most expensive work to date near a quarter of a million, is not that hard to fake, it is almost too much for the would be fakers to ignore.

 

 One believed to be Roderic O'Conor and others, said to be by Aloysius O'Kelly and Walter Osborne were withdraw from auction recently in Dublin with big question marks being raised over their authenticity. But many must surely have slipped through the net.
