Question
Dear Mr. Twyman,

I have inherited a Picasso print of 'The Blue Dove' . It seems to be on arches paper, with the embossed with the information: 'Editions Pour La Paix' and 'Copyright s.p.a.d.e.m.' in the lower right corner. It is also signed 'picasso', underligned and dated 28.12.61.

I was hoping that you would be able to throw any light on the print's authenticity or value.

Kind Regards,

Stuart Boxall-Hunt.


Answer
Société de la Propriété Artistique et des Dessins et Modules, often S.P.A.D.E.M. or SPADEM, is a copyright protection and collection society formed by visual artists and their heirs in France.[1] One of several such organizations in France which specialize according to specific kinds of art[2], SPADEM's purpose is similar to that of ASCAP and other organizations which defend the legal rights of artists.

To have a work by Picasso authenticated and appraised takes time and $$. If you are interested in selling, please email all details to:

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.
