Question
Stuart, hope this is within your area. I have a small but beautiful graphite on paper sketch signed T DE LEMPICKA. Do you have any information regarding how to get it authenticated?

Answer
You are certainly fortunate!  This woman could put down a line.  No doubt, you are well aware of de Lempicka and her rich history.

You have a picture of a a beautiful woman, perhaps?  Feel free to send me a snapshot of what you have, and perhaps a closeup of the signature.  stucartwright@yahoo.com

Where do you live?  I should be able to steer you to an auction house, or reputable gallery owner near you, where you might seek an appraisal.  I can give you a rough estimate if you send me a shot of the artwork, sizing, and any pertinent condition remarks.

Regards,
Stu

Expertise

American Fine Art Paintings.
Oils, Watercolors, Sketches. Nineteenth and early Twentieth Century. Hudson River School, Pennsylvania Academy, Cape Ann artists, Ash Can, Woodstock, Florida Indian River, American Impressionists, etc. I can provide some background about artists and perhaps a rough appraisal or guidance towards obtaining a value. I am acquainted with many of the best American art dealers and auction houses. Original works only, I do not follow the print market. I do NOT field questions about prints.

Important to know
I am not expert in European art. I encourage you to send questions on European artists to other experts on this service. NO PRINTS:I encourage you to seek help on prints elsewhere. Two sites come to mind: www.artoftheprint.com and www.philaprintshop.com

Experience

I have been collecting original American Fine Art for over 20 years. I have curated art shows, and I have served as a dealer, providing appraisals and guidance for the last 8 years.
