Question
I have a Monet copy from the Catalda Fine Arts, Inc  it is a 10 by 13 frame number SB 288  'Woman Seated"  is there any value to this picture ?

Answer
Hi Doris, Claude Monet is definitely one of the most famous Impressionist painters. His landscape paintings are often the most sought after.

Of the handful of lithographs and other prints on the market in recent memory, their price range is between $5k and $15k, with a couple $1k works and a couple $50k works. As you can see, it ranges quite greatly.

I cannot find any mentions of the piece, "Woman Seated" in catalogues or in past sales archives. I recommend that you contact Masterworks Fine Art, Inc. at http://www.masterworksfineart.com . The director, Alex Adelman, has an extensive library of historical documents and catalogues and he may be able to help you further. If not, try Christie's at http://christies.com/ or Sothebys http://www.sothebys.com/ auction houses, as they are two of the biggest names in auction houses today.

I hope this helps, and good luck to you.

Sincerely,

Andrew Evans
