Fine Art/Raoul Dufy watercolors.

Question
I have two watercolors signed Raoul Dufy. Both are horse and carriage scenes. One in front of water and palms, the other with multiple carriages with possible large house/castle/barn in the scene. They belonged to my grandparents who are long since deceased. I was born in 1953 and remember seeing them as a young girl in their home. Is there any way I can determine if they are originals or very beautiful copies ? Thank you. Respectfully, Trudy Paterson

Answer
I would have to examine them, or work with you via email to determine what you have.

If you want to persue it, send the same request (with images) to:

collectdali@aol.com

Do not post your ph# here, but when you send the email, include it so I can call with questions.

I will see what I can do, but these things can take some time to determine, it's all about research.

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.
