Fine Art/Louis Lupas Art of JFK


I have acquired a lithograph of JFK by Louis Lupas. It says 'original in the JFK collection' and is numbered 1403.
It also says 'drawn from Life' on the back. I am interested in selling it. Any information about it would be appreciated.

A contemporary, pastel portrait of John F. Kennedy, drawn from life by Louis Lupas, brought $43,020. This was against a $10,000 pre-sale estimate, and roughly five times higher than the artist's previous auction record.

That was for an original. Your print should be worth $200-$300 depending if it is signed by the artist.
