Fine Art/Dali ceramic bas-relief


QUESTION: I recently aquired a Dali Ceramic-Bas-Relief from the estate of William D. Levine(of Levine&Levine, New York, Publishers of Dali) It is called Diamond Head II(circa 1979). The provenance of the work is Raventos S.A.(Enric Sabater,secretary to Dali). It was to be published in 1981 as a limited edition but this never occurred and only 3 copies exist. The edition is 1/3(all numbered A.P.) I have a certificate of authenticity. Could you please estimate the value? Thankyou. Scott

ANSWER: I am not able to do free appraisals.  If you want proper paperwork done, please send a request to my email address and I will point you in the right direction.

QUESTION: Could you tell me anything about this piece?

I am familiar with Levine & Levine as we sell original graphics they publihsed back in the 1970's.  We do not get involved in ceramics, but that does not mean what you have is not valuable or that a collector might want it. I'd have to research it and get back to you.

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.
