Tips by Dr. Mark Sublette an art expert on how to spot fake artwork. Learn the keys when buying artwork of what to look for and questions to ask. Learn what forgers do to fake paintings to look important. Website: https://www.medicinemangallery.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/medicinemangallery Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/medicinemangallery Fake Paintings how to identify fake artwork before you buy it One of the biggest problems with dealing in early American paintings is that you have fakes and frauds. One of the reasons you come to a person like me is my expertise and my specialty. I'm going to tell you, “Yes, this is right,” or “no it isn't.” What I want to tell you today is how you, as a consumer, can look at something and potentially maybe have an idea that it is a fake or a fraud – something that was made to actually try to fool the person who's buying it. One of the things we see are old paintings, and I see this on eBay a lot, I'm afraid. You'll see an old painting that goes up, and it has an attribution. If it's attributed to an artist but isn't signed, that's a red flag. One of the most common things people do when they're trying to do a fake and a fraud on an early American painting (is) they take an old painting that might be an OK painting – that might be worth two to four hundred dollars, but it has a little look like some other artists. Like, in my case, I'll see Maynard Dixon's – they try to attribute it to him. Often what they do is they write Maynard Dixon or M Dixon. First of all, if they date it, which often they do, you might just look and see if the dates are appropriate for where he was, and what he was painting at that time. You can do this by doing a little bit of research on the web, or go to maynarddixon.org, and that'll tell you different dates of where he was. So, if they painted it in Tahoe and they did it in 1946, well, I can assure you he wasn't there. He was there in 1924. So, these little things will help. You can do some research if you really just don't know. Another thing you'll see is the frame itself. Look at the frame. If the frame has been changed out, or there's something unusual about it, or if it's very white, and they're saying on the back, “it's original to the painting,” it won't be. It takes time to develop a patina or a coloration. And wood, if it's very white, that means it's a new frame, and it's not with the painting. Also, there usually are old tags and little hints on the back. Always look at the back of a painting if you're trying to determine if it's original or not. If it has issues or if the canvas is very white, it's probably a very significant problem. If they're saying it's a new painting if they're saying it’s a new painting (then) that’s fine. If they're saying it's an old painting, (then) that's a problem. A few things to remember when you're looking at a painting and trying to decide: is it original and by that artist? (Use) common sense (and) do research. It will save you a lot of money.

Van Gogh never sold a copy of his creation ‘Sunflowers’, so how come these guys are? Taking the younger inexperienced painters under his wing, the self-taught ‘Master’ teaches them with techniques and ideas. One of his young protégées believes that painting has changed his life for the better. ‘Painting was my hobby but there was no teacher in my village, I worked on shop windows and signboards until I came here.’ He resigned from his job in a Wal-Mart supermarket to make a go of it as a street painter. ‘I saw you could make money painting, I have nothing else to do in my free time.’ The artists copy from books and photographs to produce some stunningly accurate and realistic art replicas. A light-hearted film which gives us a backstage pass to the world of ‘copy-culture’ in China.

His most successful forgery was Supper at Emmaus, created in 1937, which later sold for about $300,000. This painting was hailed by some of the world's foremost art experts as the finest Vermeer they had ever seen. After the Meegeren exposure in 1945, a wave of self-criticism surged through the world's art museums and many an Old Master or a Vermeer disappeared from their walls.

He’s the master-forger, famous for duping the art world for 30 years and flooding the market with thousands of fakes. His Picassos, Matisses and Chagalls sold for millions, were authenticated by art experts and remain on the walls of many galleries and museums. In this remarkable film, which screened in French cinemas for months, Ribes tell everything. It’s a story of phony widows, false heirs and unscrupulous traders and last but not least, how he was able to fool everyone for so long.

Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn; 15 July 1606[1] – 4 October 1669) was a Dutch painter and etcher. He is generally considered one of the greatest painters and printmakers in European art and the most important in Dutch history.His contributions to art came in a period of great wealth and cultural achievement that historians call the Dutch Golden Age when Dutch Golden Age painting, although in many ways antithetical to the Baroque style that dominated Europe, was extremely prolific and innovative, and gave rise to important new genres in painting.

Tips on how to identify if a painting is old and original or a copy. Dr. Mark Sublette owner of Medicine Man Gallery shares his twenty five years of experience in the art world on what to look for. Examples of older paintings and what are keys to be looking for before you ever buy. Website: https://www.medicinemangallery.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/medicinemangallery Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/medicinemangallery How to tell if a painting is old or a reproduction I look at artwork every day of my life – often to buy and people need my advice of what their piece is, and if its original or not. Today I want to talk about: how do you tell an original piece of artwork, and I specifically kind of hone in on paintings, because what I see all the time are pieces that are reproductions or prints or flat-out fakes and frauds. So, some of the little highlights that you need to know if you're looking to purchase a piece of artwork or if you have a piece of artwork if it's original is: 1) if it's supposedly old and has a date on it, let's say it says 1923, well it should look like it's old. You should turn over the back of the painting, and look. The back of the painting, quite frankly, is going to tell you as much as the front of the painting. If the canvas is very white, and the little sticks that you'll see in the corners that are the little spacer or the bars that you see around the edge of the painting, if those are very white and have not oxidized, it's not old – it's a new piece, and it's probably jaclay. A jaclay is a copy of an original oil painting piece of artwork. They can be very nice; they can have value, but they're a copy; a photographic copy put on canvas, and the idea is to make it look like the original. And quite frankly, from a photograph when I get them on the internet sometimes you can't tell because it can be a Charlie Russell, and it looks like a Charlie Russell because “Hey, guess what?” It is, but it's a copy; it's a jaclay. So, when you look at the piece in person, you should be able to see individual brushstrokes and thickness and texture to the paint. Those jacylays will often have the brushstrokes, but you'll see kind of a sheen on the top that really just doesn't look right. And then if you turn it around on the back you'll see staples where the canvas has been stapled to the stretcher bars. The stretcher bars, which are the foundation bars, will be. The canvas will be white, (and) there's no oxidation. Charlie Russell was painting at the turn of the century – if you've got that time frame, things are going to happen. Also, the frame will tell you something. If you look at a frame and it is got chips – again, the wood is oxidized, and you may see different holes where it's been used in the past; look at these things. If they look old and feel old and maybe even smell old; if they've been in a smoker’s home for 20-30 years, you'll smell the nicotine. Use your senses, and if that little voice says, “Something's wrong.” Guess what? It is. So, you can't just go buy a history, because I can tell you this: after twenty years of doing this, histories are very easy to fabricate, and people do this, or they just, you know, (have a) family lore (that) says, “Oh, this has been in our family for a hundred years.” Well, the realities of it, (is) take that into consideration, but it's probably the last thing. First, use your own eyes (and) your own senses. Does this feel like it's a painting that's old or not? Remember, people do make frauds and fakes. So, if you're buying older works you have to (and it looks old – well, it could be an old painting that they've signed a name on. I see all the time old paintings where somebody's put Maynard Dixon) you have to know your subject matter, and if it's obviously not his work, not his signature, not his style, then it's not right. The last thing I go on (with) a painting is the signature. That's the very last thing that I take into consideration because the signature is easier to fake than style, composition, and the way the painting looks like. You know, they can be a good forger of the name Maynard Dixon, but they can't do the palette; they can't do the structure or the composition of the painting. Even if it's an old painting, it just doesn't hack it. So, when you look at these things, be very critical. Look for age, especially on old pieces; they should have a certain sensibility and if they don't, get an expert to look at it before you ever purchase it.
