Fine Art/Salvidor Dali dry-point engraving


This print titled "Europa and the Bull" was purchased in the early 1970's from the Fine Arts 260, a Division of the Book-of-the Month Club.  The Certificate of Authenticity states it to be an original dry-point engraving pulled in four colors on Rives paper in the workshop of Ateliers Rigal in France.  Pulling was completed in 1972. The edition consists of 1000 impressions, signed in pencil by the artist and numbered 1/1000 to 1000/1000. This one is 928/1000.  If it is authentic, what would be its value? If I hold on to it is the value subject to increase significantly?
Thank you.  

Any authentic signed work by Dali will continue to go UP in value.

The issue is, do you have an authentic Dali?

Send images and details to  and I will check it further for you.  If you are selling, please mention that in your email.

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.
