Fine Art/About a Maurice Utrillo work I have


Maurice Utrillo Gouache
Maurice Utrillo Gouach  
Hi Dan

I found this Maurice Utrillo Le Maison de Mimi work that is on board that appears like paint. I do realize there are lots of his prints everywhere, but this one seems a different because the paint has texture to it and is raised. It has a matte around it, so the measurements are hard to be precise on. The total measurements are approx. 29 3/4" wide x 25" high. It was sealed in the original 1950's frame but I had to take it out to get a more accurate examination of it. The condition is exceptional. Is it possible this could be an original pochoir or gouache? And who would have performed the pochoir/gouache task? I do have some really nice close up photos of it.

Thank you!


It is possible, but much work would have to be done to determine what you have.

The last report I did for a client took about 3 hours of work. Some reports take much longer.

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.
