Fine Art/Unknown artwork painting or print


Mom\'s painting
Mom's painting  
Let me preface, I know very little about art. So with that being said, I have a print or painting that my mother had so long she couldn't remember where she got it. She has now passed and my father wants to find out out the painting. Please look at the image and let me know what you can. Thank you in advance.

Hi, I am not familiar with this piece. I recommend contacting Christies or Sothebys auction houses, as they are the two largest auction houses in the world. They may have an expert who knows this piece. If there is one near where you live, you can also take it to a Bonham's Valuation Day .

You can read about the differences between lithographs and other printing techniques at to help identify the technique used to make it.

I hope this helps, and good luck to you!
