Fine Art/Picasso- Les Banderilles


Hi Dan,

I just purchased a Picasso, Les Banderilles, print from an online auction and paid $358 for it.  I have not recieved the print yet but would like to know a few things to prepare myself for my venture into art collecting.
1) How can I authenticate the piece aside from a seller statement of autherticity?
2) If I was to acquire other pieces in the series, would the collective values of the pieces increase?
3) Aside from a local frame shop, where can I take the piece to have it refraimed, if it is in a period frame that may not maintain the piece for a longer time?
4) Is there a current bull market on Picasso art, does this include prints?

First, there are no authentic Picasso/signed works for 358.00

As for the rest, I can educate you in the arts and collecting, as I have 35 years experience as an art consultant, but I cannot do it for free.

If you want to persue this type of thing, email a request to my personal email address:

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.
