Question
HI Dan,

I have a copy of Chagall's litho, Couple in Front of a Tree . Original lithograph-From Chagall Lithographe 1957-1961, Vol. 1-2. Reference: Mourlot 292. Sheet: 12-1/2 x 9-1/2 inches. [28778c].
Mine has been watercolored. Now I know upon first assumption one would think that someone else other than Chagall would have done this, however, it appears as if it was done "too good" for the average art lover.
I was wondering, did Chagall himself ever go over some of his black and white lithos with watercolor? And if so, how could this be authenticated?
THANKS SO MUCH for your kind help!
Lizzie

Answer
What you are referring to is a hand embellished limited edition work.

To obtain proper paperwork, there is a process you have to go through that involves art experts, they have their own fees.

If you are trying to sell it, I can take a look at it.  Send image and all detials including close up of signature to: dan@dali.com

Expertise

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.
