Question
I have a Renoir "Original Etching Restrike, 'Berthe Morisot' D#4.  Under the artist's name it states #114-147. Would this be something of value?  Please help.

Answer
Hi Mike, restrikes are typically less valued than works done by the artist during their lifetime. You can compare your work to another Renoir etching http://www.masterworksfineart.com/inventory/renoir , and take a close look at the description of the edition of the work. From unique originals to second state impressions, the price varies greatly. A restrike of a popular work could be worth anywhere from nothing to a few thousand dollars.

If you send me a high quality image of your Renoir print, I may be able to tell you more about it.

Sincerely,

Andrew Evans
