Fake or Fortune?

I have been given a small art work of Ian Fairweather’s by a dear friend and fellow artist. It is in a very sad state and I would like to have it authenticated so I can spend the money to have it framed and preserved correctly. It is in a very bad state of repair. So in search of the truth, I need to investigate further. Feels a bit like the BBC TV show, Fake or Fortune. Don’t think I have the resources to go to the trouble they do, nor do I have much in the way of providence or paper work to verify it is an Ian Fairweather, but Joanne has sent images and details to the Queensland Art Gallery to see if any one there is willing to assist us with some information regarding it.

Will keep you posted as to what we find out.

    A possible clue ? Compare the signature / symbol in the lower right hand corner – with this authentic fairweather in the nsw gallery . Signatues compare favourably, and certainly the style compare favourably. ……. http://m.artgallery.nsw.gov.au/collection/works/8177/
