QUESTION: Dear Sir,
I am trying to find out any info about a painting I have acquire.

Respectfully,

ANSWER: Interesting, looks like pastels.  The artist did make a name for himself and information can be obtained, but it would take a bit of time to research it.

QUESTION: Hello Dan,
Thank you for the reply.  The painting appears to be an oil on canvas. It is definitely texture and has somewhat of a sheen to it.  I would love to find out the age of this painting. I tried to do some research, all I know is he was born in Russia, in 1911 and died in the 70's.  And his work was mostly oils. Thank you so much for any information you might find. I did find on Southebys.com one of his paintings that sold for over 4,000 dollars in 1993.

Sincerley,


Roseann Buchanan

ANSWER: It would take some time to research.  If you want to persue it, send all details to my personal email address: collectdali@aol.com

QUESTION: I will contact you via email.  I see you are a Salvador Dali expert.
I frequently visit my 90 year old father in Tampa, and one of these trips I want to visit the Salvador Dali museum there. I have a friend with a collection of Dali's paintings, pretty neat stuff.

Sincerely,

Roseann Buchanan

Answer
Yes the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg. There is a Dali exhibit there now with the original Persistence of Memory (Melting Clock image), it might be over but when it was in Los Angeles it was a three month exhibit.

Expertise

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.
