Fine Art/Raoul Dufy

Question
I have two pictures(appear to be watercolours), signature is Raoul Dufy.  I cannot tell if these are originals or reproductions.  The image measures 8 1/8  X 14 3/4 inches.  Can you advise on how to verify if these are reproductions or originals?

Answer
Hi Cindi, these etchings and lithographs http://www.masterworksfineart.com/inventory/dufy by Raoul Dufy might give you an idea of his style. I suggest that you contact Masterworks Fine Art, Inc. at http://www.masterworksfineart.com for more information. Email them quality photographs of the piece, and they will be happy to tell you everything they know about the piece you have.

Sincerely,

Andrew Evans
