Question
Dear mr Evans ,I have been trying to acquire a picasso print online
picasso project #52:096 la guerre et la paix "Etude " or war of the war and
peace set.on Ebay I have found one for sale at Ebay.ca Art from dealers
or resellers-prints item #370427696532 .the seller claims this a # print
405/1500 but the accompanying certificate lists 405/1000,a glaring
discrepancy,as well the photos show two different border margins and
color variatoins.is this print a fake?Any ideas were to get a print or high
res photo ?

Answer
Hi Edward, can you please send me a link to this item and/or an image of that exact piece so I can give you an idea of what I think about the piece? There are a couple of editions Picasso did of about 1000 and 1500, often with a green stamp signature which are somewhat collectible, if it is authentic.

Sincerely,

Andrew Evans
