Fine Art/Les Végétaux and Fleurs de Neige by Henri Matisse

Question
Fleurs de Neige
Fleurs de Neige  
I have two lithographic prints by Henri Matisse measuring 28in. long by 15in. wide titled Végétaux and Fleurs de Neige. They are both printed on heavy Arches paper and judging by the condition of the paper and frame fairly old (1950's or 1960's). I understand his estate issued both lithographs for Verve in 1958, but the size of those lithographs measure 14" x 10 1/4". My question is did his estate authorize additional lithographs (not off set prints) at a larger size and are they of any value. They are silk screens and were created around the same time frame.

Thanks,
Chuck

Answer
This will take some research.  If you want to persue it, send images and all details, any writing on documents or on the back of the works etc.  Send to:  collectdali@aol.com

Include a ph# (not on this public site) in your email in case I need to explain specifics.

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.
