Question
QUESTION: What would be the value of a set of 2 prints or lithographs of Dawson's works titled "Neck & Neck" and " Winning Tack". They were from Rudolf Lesch Fine Art Gallery and the label on the back has the number 1603 on both. They are framed in wood that is colored aqua. They were purchased in 1953.

ANSWER: Jacquie, lithographs by Montague Dawson such as "Neck and Neck" and "Winning Track" have sold for about $100 - $500 as of a few years ago. The value may have gone up since then. They have been sold in the USA and UK at various venues.

Sincerely,

Andrew Evans

Answer
Hi Jacquie,

Since this is not currently a super popular artist, it might take a little work. Auction houses are probably your best bet for a quick sell, like Bonham's http://www.bonhams.com . You can throw it on eBay for a couple of weeks to see if there are any takers. There is also Art Brokerage http://artbrokerage.com/ . If you want to sell it quick, then an auction house, but if you want to make the most from it, then you can find a fine art dealer that may be able to consign the work for you http://www.ifaacertified.com/locate.html . Best of luck to you.

Sincerely,

Andrew Evans
