Fine Art/Aldo Luongo print


I just bought a print from an opportunity shop for $1.00 Australian.At the bottom of the print it says Tenderness 12x16 70 IRA Roberts Publishing(1970).When I look it up under this name a similar yet different picture comes up.Could you please tell me why and how much It might be worth?

Dear Stephen,

I did not see that it was hand signed and numbered. If not it is a reproduction commissioned and released by IRA Roberts Publishing in 1970. I beleive the original was released in 1968. Luongo has done several versions of this image and a slight variation can create an entirely new edition. I found a few on the net and they sold for under $100. If hand signed his prints go for much more.

I hope this is helpful.

Kind regards,

Fine Art
