Fine Art/Salvador dali's "Portrait of My Dead Brother" and three other works


I'm grateful for any assistance you can offer me with the following Dali pieces:
"Portrait of My Dead Brother" Edition # 116 c. 1963, purchased in 1987, Artist's signature done by a person authorized to do so by Dali himself, I'm assuming the ArtMart.

"Charles de Gaulle" produced in 1974, the edition # is 113 and is signed by the artist. I cannot find any information on this pieces sans a conversation I had with an employee of Doubletake Galleries, who says the piece is rare. Do you know anything of it?

"Lincoln in Dalivision" produced in 1976, what I have is an embossed photolith on paper, not one of the metal ones. The edition is signed and numbered 70.
and lastly,
"Prince of Ciups, edition # 221 and signed by the artist.

Through my research of these pieces, I realize most galleries will not buy pieces separately, or will not purchase these together, because they are not part of a series, or portfolio.

I realize you cannot do free appraisals, but rather I was looking for information discerning their authenticity. Each of these were purchased in galleries, and thankfully, not on  a cruise ship or in Hawaii, as many others have purchased forgeries going that route.

You already seem to have more info than the average person who contacts me?

I have info on all of these works and have been brokering Dali for 16 years, so I can help you.

There is a process we need to go through to determine authenticity.

If you want to persue it, send images of what you have with your original message to this email address:

Do not post any personal info here, but you can include a phone number in your private email to me in case I need to call with questions.

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.
