Fine Art/Dali


QUESTION: hi, looking at an etching described as original el cid 1950, says cetified and embossed by collectors guild, signiture on top left,how rare are these, what should i be looking out for and how much should i expect to pay please. Thanks.

ANSWER: You are describing low end decorative art.  The Collectors Guild was a print club that sent its members one print per months, (as I recall).  

If you are looking for investment grade art, I can mail you a catalog.

You can call me at: 888-888-DALI  Ext. 204

You should avoid posting you email address online, lot's of Spammers.

Send name address ph# etc. to so I can set up a file in our system and mail you a catalog with hundreds of images.

I would avoid Ebay, no one polices the sales of art and many have sent images of fake works for us to evaluate.  Modern day digital scans are nothing more that a decorative poster on heavy paper.

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.
