Fine Art/Matisse Print


I realize that Matisse is not among the areas of interest that you list but nevertheless I have a numbered and signed Matisse lithograph print that's been in the family for a long time.  I've never had it appraised but have recently contacted an appraiser to begin that process.  It's a Virgin and Child that I'm guessing he did in the early 50's but I really don't know.  For reference it's Duthuit 653 and it's number 106 or 200.  A lady at my local art museum translated the Catalog Raisonne on it and my print was among a large group of the 200 that were "lost."  Any idea of a rough value?  Thanks for your help.


I need more info to help you.

What your asking for is an appraisal, but it has to be authenticated first.

This can take time. If you want to persue it, send your ph# to my personal email address along with images and all details you have on the piece.

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.
