Fine Art/Charles Lantz "For Hire" in Color Serigraph


We have a set of two Charles Lantz originals of automobiles signed in pencil. They are both framed with a double mat and signed in pencil. The one I have with me now (other is in storage) is entitled "For Hire", states it is in the "Color Serigraph" medium, and has the certificate of authenticity from Patrician Publications, Inc. I'm interested in knowing more about the artist and an approximate value of these items. We received them from my husband's grandfather and want to insure them if necessary and find out more about them. I've looked on-line, but haven't found much: one deleted Craig's List posting and one auction site link. I'll be contacting the auction site as well (Sunset Auctions, Edmonds, WA), but do you have any further information or where else I can look? Thank you for any information you can provide!

Also look for info under the name Chuck Lantz.

There is a bit of confusion when it comes to Patrician. There is a Patrician Galleries that is listed as a suspended company, a Patrician Gallery that is online as a gallery website, a Patrician Publications that creates books?

Bottom line, research has to be done and will take time.

The serigraph medium is a good medium, but it has to be authenticated and appraised in a formal manner, fees involved etc.

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.
