Fine Art/Picasso Dance of Youth


I have a 20" X 26" Dance of Youth on heavy textured water color paper. Since the ink has some thickness to it, I assume it is a lithograph. It is definitely not a cheap poster I find for $20 or so online. A sticker on the back says "Structural Industries Inc." Sante Fe CA and the number SI-8. This could be an inventory # of a company being dismantled or just clearing some things out or the number given the piece by an art dealer. Can you tell me anything--hopefully an idea of value?

There are no free "Fine Art Appraisals" in the industry.

The image you mentioned is very well known and there are many unauthorized copies of it.

No one gives away an authentic Picasso for $20.00 unless they have been living in a cave for the past 50 years.

I can answer questions about Salvador Dali. While I cannot do FREE APPRAISALS, I might be able to help you sell your works. I can also help with Chagall, Miro, Picasso and other 20th Century Masters.

Questions about a type of art or medium can be answered with one response in most cases. Technical issues are easier to deal with than specifics about an artist. If you need help finding values or history on an artist, it will probably involve research that can sometimes take hours to complete. If you have more than one image to send, I will give you an alternate email address as this system cannot handle multiple images.
