Fine Art/Picasso Peirrot


My mother has a signed painting of Picasso's Peirrot.  I have always been curious about it's value.  She found the painting in an old home they purchased about 45 years ago.  The painting has always hung in an out of the way place because when I was young my sisters and I thought the sad clown was scary.  Are all prints/reproductions created equal or could this painting be worth something?  I very much appreciate your reply and site.  Shari

Dear Shari,

To answer your question; not all prints/reproductions are of equal value. Prints by Picasso named Pierrot was released as a lithograph, serigraph,and more recent as offset lithographs. The value changes from $20 to thousands depending on the type of print, the edition size, and if it is hand signed; among other factors. I cannot tell you what you have without seeing it in person. If it is signed in the plate and does not have edition numbers on the bottom of the print, it is likely a reproduction. You may want to take it to a local dealer for an opinion. I hope this is helpful.

Best regards,

Fine Art
