Question
Are you familiar with Martin Lowitz Galleries and if so what information do you have as to the authenticity of the paintings or drawings in his gallery.  I understand that he sold reproductions to many hotels in Las Vegas but do you have any information as to whether he owned original art from J.W. Turner, Sprout,Renoir or Picasso? Thank you!

Answer
You are probably referring to Martin Laurence Galleries.
They are retail. I am a broker. Same type of art, but I have better prices. I have known many employees of Martin Laurence over the years, and I worked next door to the Rodeo Drive location for about a year before it closed, I went in there a few times a week to see what they had. Nice people, but once again, it is a retail environment.

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.
