PARIS, Sep 29, 2020 / PRNewswire / – In 2019, total sales of art auctions in France increased by 18% compared to 2018, reaching a record high of US $ 830 million and consolidating the country’s fourth place in the world ranking of the main national market places But it is not yet a direct competitor of the United Kingdom which has generated a turnover 25 times higher in the auction sector of art

« France has several advantages, however, recalls Thierry Ehrmann, CEO and founder of Artmarketcom and its Artprice department, » and in particular its hidden stock of old masterpieces, some of which are generally found in theaters every year sales of the country But it takes all the know-how of an expert of the Old Masters to defend their value and their rightful place in the History of Art The quality of the work carried out by French art experts is today ‘hui recognized worldwide « 

Eric Turquin, expert in old masters paintings, admits that the sale of the small devotional panel attributed to the master of Vyssi Brod was probably his company’s biggest achievement in 2019 And yet it has been an emotional year since Cabinet Turquin was heavily involved in the sale of Caravaggio de Toulouse in June 2019 (finally sold privately), of the Cimabue painting in October and even of a work by Artemisia Gentileschi in November

However, the attribution of this small panel to the artist known as the Master by Vyssi Brod, a 14th century Gothic painter from Prague, was indeed a real tour de force. It took a lot of patient research to back up this delicate attribution, but it ultimately demonstrated the exceptional value of this small painting Nine bidders competed for it in Dijon and it eventually went to the Benappi Fine Art Gallery which purchased the work for $ 6 8 million on behalf of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York

An intense research dossier was also triggered by the discovery of a bronze bust of Paul Phelypeaux de Pontchartrain, one of Henri IV’s ministers When auctioneer Geraldine d’Ouince saw it for the first time, she exclaimed: « This cannot be the 17th century … it would be too good to be true … no longer exists! … » Busts from this period are indeed extremely rare, even in museums most prestigious, and they are totally absent from the Mais market, with the help of Elodie Jeannest and Alexandre Lacroix of the Sculpture expertise firm & Collection (also based at 69 rue Sainte-Anne in Paris, next to the Cabinet Turquin), they were able to establish that the bronze dated from the first half of the 17th century

In total, Géraldine d’Ouince recognized before the public sale that the estimate provided in the catalog – between $ 550,000 and $ 885,000 – could be largely exceeded, and indeed the bust of Paul Phélypeaux reported nearly of $ 3 4 million

While it represents a niche market in the United States generating barely 3% of the total turnover of the American art market, the old masters segment represents up to 14% of the turnover art auctions in France Last year this segment benefited from the excellent work of the country’s consulting firms, often involving extensive research that is absolutely necessary before an auction house can hope to attract buyers informed and convinced

When an appraisal report is both convincing and conclusive, the news of the sale seems to spread almost by itself The media and the art market are fond of stories of works of art. forgotten or poorly attributed art that gradually regain its rightful place in art history as research advances and evidence accumulates In the end, technical analyzes, x-rays and comparisons with other masterpieces are presented in an auction catalog… and the true identity and history of the work is revealed

The excellent results hammered out in France in 2019 have proven that once the expert report has been duly established, the sale of the piece can take place outside the major capitals – in places like Toulouse, Dijon or even in the small town of Senlis – and still attract the biggest collectors and museums in the world

1 CIMABUE (c 1240/50-c 1302) – Christ mocks $ 26,780,000 – (Estimate: $ 4,400,000 – $ 6,600,000) 10/27/2019, Hotel des Ventes de Senlis

2 Master of Vyssi BROD (act1350-) – The Virgin and Child on the Throne $ 6,833,000 (Estimate: $ 440,000 – $ 660,000) 11/30/2019, Cortot & Associes, Dijon

4 Antonio SUSINI (Attrib) (1558-1624) – Abduction of a Sabine (c1590-1610) $ 4,985,000 (estimate: $ 2,775,000 – $ 5,545,000) 11/12/2019, Sotheby’s, Paris

5 Giambettino CIGNAROLI (Attrib) (1706-1770) – Portrait of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart […] $ 4,435,000 (estimated: $ 880,000 – $ 1,320,000) 11/27/2019, Christie’s, Paris

6 Ambrosius I BOSSCHAERT (1573-1621) – Cut flowers in a Roemer […] $ 3,709,000 (Estimate: $ 2,470,000 – $ 2,800,000) 06/19/2019, Fraysse – Binoche & Giquello, Paris

7 Francesco BORDONI (1580-1654) – Paul Phélypeaux […] $ 3,372,000 (estimated: $ 550,000 – $ 885,000) 11/20/2019, from Baecque – D’Ouince, Paris

9 Bernardino LUINI (c1480 / 85-1532) 2,534,000 – Madonna and Child with Saint George $ 2,534,000 (Estimate: $ 1,980,000 – $ 2,200,000) 11/14/2019, Aguttes, Paris

An expertise has much more weight when it is carried out by an independent firm whose reputation is at stake as regards the objectivity of its report

An auctioneer who sees a work for the first time is already partly engaged in its sale and the quality of his work will be measured according to the success of the transaction Auction houses sometimes give the impression of too much focus on the marketing and financial aspects of a sale When Patrick Drahi acquired Sotheby’s and appointed businessman Charles F Director at its head, she sent a strong signal on Sotheby’s strategy and priorities In the case of Salvator Mundi, one can wonder if Christie’s did not put more energy into organizing its international tour than analyzing his artistic qualities and to question his place in da Vinci’s work

For the time being, Eric Turquin and Alexandre Lacroix seem to appreciate their collaborations with French auction houses, whether Parisian or provincial. There is no doubt that these auctioneers benefit from his expertise, his knowledge, of its experience and its reputation, but above all of its independence. This avoids certain pressures from the Art Market, in which conflicts of interest sometimes have repercussions… even in the collections of the largest museums

Over twenty years ago, Thomas Hoving – former director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art – already drew the attention of the art world to the presence of fakes in large museum collections In 1997, he wrote in the introduction to his book False Impression, The Hunt for Big-Times Art Fakes: “In the decade and a half I spent at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, I had to examine fifty thousand works in all fields In total, 40% were fakes, or had been restored so hypocritically or so misattributed that they were exactly the same as fakes Since then, I’m sure this percentage has increased […]

« When art became an increasingly expensive commodity in the 1970s and 1980s, counterfeits flourished Young millionaires or billionaires began to covet art as an object of investment, as well as a brand prestige and social superiority The originals not being numerous enough, the false Old Masters (or entirely repainted) filled the gaps « 

The former director of the MET gave credence, at least in part, to this explanation: « One of the most ferocious of all [fakebusters], the Italian Giuseppe » Pico « Cellini, now in the early years eighty and still exhibiting all kinds of trash, believes that the tendency of most American museums to keep their false secrets or secrets is because they have sold themselves to their wealthy donors and trustees. do not exaggerate « 

It is probably no coincidence that in 2019, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York was one of the main buyers of paintings evaluated by the independent cabinet of Eric Turquin French expertise in the face of a new global demand
