Question
QUESTION: I have a paint by leiber...its a man(i think) in a brown robe holding baby jesus. Just the two of them in it.  The frame is very old and I'm scared to take it apart.  Is this worth anything, when I tried to pull the back of the frame off, the painting is painted on something thats not paper and starts to crumble when touched....its very old...from my grandparents house that was passed down for many generations.
Thanks

Gerson August Leiber  

There are other artists with that last name.

QUESTION: Is this vauleable at all?

Answer
The piece has to be examined in person to determine values. All art is suject to being copied. The art industry is broken up in to various categories. Brokers, galleries, appraisers, authenticators etc.  I am a broker and do not do appraisals. I gave the suggestion to look online, as that is the best bet to find a dealer that can help you.

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.
