I owe two lithographs. One by Picasso, after the painting "Portrait of Lady Z",named"Sadona"from collection Dorname with Picasso's pencil signature in the right lower corner on the colored lithograph.On the left lower white margin there is a number 91/150 in pencil and a bronze collored medal- Musse Picasso- Paris . The Chagall's lithograph called"Rigon"has lithographed or stamped signature of Marc Chagall on the right lower margin ,  on the left lower margin there is a number 102/200 in pencil with the bronze colored medal next to it. The bronze medall has a inscription "Collection Nacionalle,Monnaire the Paris,Medaille Officielle" .Could You tell me the meaning and significance of the medals ? ThankYou .Julitta

Publishers have various ways of stamping a work for the purpose of authenticity. In many cases, affordable art has a stamp that talks about the location of the original work that the print is based on, so the text will mention a private collection. To better help you, I'd need to see images of what you have.  Please email images of the works with close ups of the signatures and any stamps or text anywhere on the works.

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.
