Fine Art/Chagall print, real or forgery?



I have a copy of Chagall's "Bouquet Over the Town" (http:// and, while trying
to identify it and find out some info, I found out about the Tony Tetro
forgeries.  I was wondering if there is any relatively certain thing that I can
look for that will let me know if mine is an actual Chagall or a fake.  It is
signed in pencil below the litho in the right corner, with the letters HC in the
lower left corner.  The paper is torn on the right side and in the bottom left
hand side is a raised mark with the letters AT.

Thanks for the time, any help is greatly appreciated.


The downside of having an HC is that there is no edition number to verify when doing authenticity. As more time goes by, there are less and less people qualified to authenticate the works. Research has to be done. I know of a good art appraiser, the only problem, he might ask for a new certificate of authentiticy.

It's a process.

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.
