Fine Art/Kaiko Moti


Kaiko Moti Saimese Cat
Kaiko Moti Saimese Cat  

I had for a number of years, a 9"x 9" water color of a Siamese cat painted in green tones that is signed by K. Moti.  I have not been able to find the painting referenced in two books on Kaiko Moti works that I have located, although I did found a picture of a lithograph of the paining on-line that was included on a auction house listing in the UK.

I was hoping that you could provide me with some recommendations to how I could authenticate and get this wonderful painting appraised.

There are so many art appraisers listed in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area how do you know who you should trust?

Thank you

Dear Peg,

I did some research on art experts in your area. I found a few organizations that appears to be staffed with top experts that should be able to authenticate and appraise your painting. Please email me at for more information.

Kind regards,

Fine Art
