Fine Art/Charlot?


Hi-I wondering if you could help identify the attached picture? I have 2 similar here at home-they appear to be signed Charlot but cannot find anything except Marie or Jean Charlot-doesn't look like their work. Thanks for your help!

Dear Mary,

The only artist I could find from the period who painted ballerinas was a Raymond Charlot; born in France in the late 1800's. I cannot find a biography on him and his paintings are signed with his first name as well, so I am not certain he produced these prints. It appears this artist has been an enigma for many people who are asking about the artist on the internet. Overall, it is an open edition vintage print whose value is what the collector is willing to pay.

Kind regards,

Fine Art
