Question
Elijah
Elijah  
I am interested in selling what I think is an original SD etching "Elijah" which is signed by SD in limited edition, fully authenticated by the gallery of purchase with the pencil "EA" at the bottom left. The etching is in excellent condition, measures roughly 25" x 19".I have no idea what the EA refers to. The appraised value in 1985 was $3200. Without paying for an appraisal, can you give me a close approximation of it's value. Thank you for your time. Call me if you wish.

Answer
I would avoid posting your phone number online as these listings are not deleted. Please send an email with images of what you have, including a close up of the signature and edition number to this email address: collectdali@aol.com

I will get back to you after we review the images.

Expertise

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.
