Question
I have been given a (picasso?) By a friend whom bought a house full of art work.  She gave me a Mother with child it looks like it is done in water color,but I could be wrong.  It is signed Picasso and under it has the number 22 on it.  It is in a frame and I would hate to open it without someone who knows what they are doing.
Is this real? and what would it be worth?
It looks like the one on ART.com
Thank you for any help you could give me.

Answer
Seems like I already answered this question?  Anyway, you need proper authenticity and there are only a few people that can do that.

The internet is the last place to buy fine art, quite a few fakes.
You will see Picasso images on many websites, means nothing.

What do you want to do with the art?  Are you ready to spend some money having it authenticated?

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.
