Fine Art/picasso maturnity 1905


Was wondering how to identify if it is original or not?

It is one of the more copied of all Picasso's. You can find prints, fakes, knock offs where they admit it is an in house artist and then they value the knock off as high as 4K? Crazy things going on out there in the market. There is a specific process involved in authenticating a Picasso. I might look at it and say it appears to be authentic, but the reality is, the paper needs to be checked, the signature verified and some other identifying marks need to be compared to archived info. It's a process. The estate offers help, but they are expensive. I have a dealer friend who I trust when it comes to Picasso, I take works to them for verification.
Many in the art industry rely on me for Salvador Dali help, that is my area, but I have sold a few legit Picasso works in the past month or so.

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.
