Before you purchase any old painting you need to view this video. Mark Sublette a leading art dealer shares his 25 years of experience to help collectors understanding the subtle details that can help you avoid mistakes when collection art.

This is a painting that I bought at an art auction, and on this occasion there was at least a thousand people at this auction. It was mainly staff, museum directors, there was even a major auction house at this place, and they had this listed in the silent auction as a copy as a reproduction, and it was basically nothing to buy. Now, I recognized immediately this was not the case, and how did I do that? From the back the back of the painting. It is as important as the front of the painting (and) here's the reason why. When they looked at this and brought it in and evaluated, it they assumed it had to be a new painting. The canvas is white and if you look on the edges it has staples. Both things are obviously very contemporary but that's only a small portion of the real story. The real story (is) you have to go a little deeper and that allows you to look at the overall aspect of the back. Remember, the back of the painting is as important as the front. So one of the things you'll notice is the color of the wood. This color is very dark brown; it was oxidized over many, many years. In fact, this painter – his name is W Brian. He died in 1920, so this painting has to be at least a hundred years old. You'll notice the keys are very dark; these are early keys. One of the other things you'll notice and this is very important, is you can see a line right here. This line of whiter wood next to the darker wood with the little holes that goes around the entire painting (and that) tells the actual story. And here's the story: the painting has been relined. Now, relining an old painting costs a lot of money, so right off the bat you know it was worth something to someone to spend at least a few hundred to even a thousand dollars to have the piece saved. They reline these pieces because it allows the crackalure or the cracking of the painting to be stabilized. So, that's why you see the white canvas and you see the staples. Now, if you look on the front of the painting, you will see this mark right here, and in this area really was a tip-off to me. That's a concussion mark and somewhere along the line it got hit. You can see the little circular round-type crackalure, and this is probably one of the reasons that they wanted to line the historic painting. Also, you can see this is an older frame; it's an okay frame but you can tell it's gelded and it's hand-carved, and if you look at the painting you can see that it has texture and not texture like you would see in a print or jaclay, you actually have texture. Now, when I went to look at this painting; it's on the easel marked as jaclay reproduction. I immediately went to the back of the painting to see what was going on, because it looked perfectly fine to me and then that's when the story revealed itself it. It was obviously relined (and) somebody didn't recognize it, and all the people that had gone through and looked at it all passed it up. Partly, they probably passed it up because it said “jaclay or reproduction” and they just assumed it was that and they're not going to be interested. But you always have to be if you're going to be a good art dealer. You have to look deeper; you have to look for what's really the true story, and if you want to know the true story, always look at the back of the historic painting.
Flowers in a Glass Vase is a beautiful still life painted by the Dutch artist Jacob van Walscapelle in 1667 — the earliest known signed work by this artist. We don't believe that the painting has been treated since it was bequeathed to the V&A in 1900. Over time, the oil paint has started to flake, and the natural varnish has become discoloured. The painting is now undergoing thorough conservation work, which includes carefully reattaching paint flakes, removing discoloured varnish, applying new varnish and retouching. Transformed, the painting will go on display in Room 81 of the V&A Paintings Galleries. Find out more: https://www.vam.ac.uk/info/conservation
Fritz Thaulow: A collection of 157 paintings (HD) Description: "Norwegian painter Frits Thaulow was born in 1847 and traveled throughout Europe. Though famous for his landscape painting, he is also known for combining Realism and Impressionism in his work. Born in a small town in Norway, Frits Thaulow was the son of a wealthy chemist. His father’s money gave him the chance to work with some of the leading artists of his time. Thaulow worked with several tutors and painters to perfect his art. Early in his career, Thaulow studied maritime art and planned to work in the field, but he later found himself interested in landscape art. After traveling between Norway and France for several years, Thaulow made the permanent move to France, where he lived and worked for the last few years of his life. Thaulow moved to Paris early in his career and worked on a number of paintings. Though Realism was popular in Norway, Paris was the center of the Impressionist movement. When he attempted to paint Impressionist landscapes, he found himself incorporating realistic elements from his childhood. Art historians now often regard the artist’s work as a combination of Realist and Impressionist elements. Those elements are clear inHorses Watering at the Bridge at Montreiul sur Mer. The interesting lines and pale color choices are clearly the work of an Impressionist, while the realistic look of the horses and the houses on the shore fall into the Realism movement. Another of his famous pieces is Summer Landscape with a Bridge at Beaulieu, which centered on a small creek. In 1880, Thaulow left Paris and returned to Norway, where he lived for more than a decade. While in France, he learned many Impressionist techniques that he later brought to his home country. Thaulow often focused on the landscapes and cities near his hometown. He completed a series of paintings of skiers on the slopes of a small town before moving back to Paris. Moving to France helped Thaulow expand his paintings to include French settings. He created the pieces The Battery and At Quimperle later in his career. Thaulow spent the last fourteen years of his life living in Paris and painting the French countryside as well as recreating memories from his home country. By combining elements of Realism and Impressionism in his landscapes, Thaulow created his own movement, and he’s responsible for introducing the Impressionist style to Norway." --- SUBSCRIBE: www.youtube.com/c/LearnFromMasters?sub_confirmation=1 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LearnFromMasters/ Google+: https://plus.google.com/+LearnFromMasters Contact: LearnFromMasters01@gmail.com --- Thanks for all support!
