L I N K S



Infra red photograph of part of a forged 'Osborne' signature. The date of (18)85 is actually covered by recent paint added by a forger and is invisible in normal light. The awkward clumsiness of the signature is another important telltale and is typical of the poor attempts made by forgers when copying signatures. In contrast to this, Osborne's lettering was sharp, precise and perfectly aligned.

Note: In normal light, the eye sees only the surface colours of a painting. Light in the visible band of the spectrum is reflected from underlying layers and is fragmented and intensified in the upper pigment layer. Infra red radiation, in contrast to this, is considerably more penetrating and can reveal underlying features in a painting up to four times greater than that visible to the naked eye.


If you have an interest in exposing malpractice in the art market, please add a link to our fraud and forgery pages on your website.
