QUESTION: Dan, This image is very good, no complaints to date. Are you able to verify the signature. I'm straigt to the point. Are you able to authenticate if this is the artist signature or attributed to or a fake? Or can you refer the question to one who can.

Answer
If anyone tells you they can authenticate the signature from the photograph you sent, then they are mis-leading you. An expert needs to examine the work in person to determine the origin of the signature. Look for printed dots by using a jewlers loup or magnifying glass. Fine art authentication takes many hours of work and there are fees, I don't know of anyone in the industry that does Free appraisals and authenticity. There are plenty of people out there that want to charge you money to tell you what you want to hear, I'm just trying to be honest.

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.
