Fine Art/Picasso Lithograph and Unknown Artist
I am having a very difficult time getting some paperwork on a Picasso lithograph and identifying another artist. I have been offered $15,000 for the Picasso lithograph, but the owner (a family friend) thinks she can get more for it, but without any paperwork on it, I have no way to figure out the true value or even if it is worth spending $300+ on it to get the appraisal.
I also have 3 other similar prints that i cannot identify the artist, name of piece, or if they are worth getting appraised as well (again...$300 a pop). Any information you can give me would be great!
P.S. I think I can only upload one image per question, so I will send the other ones in seperate questions or if you send me an email I can respond to, I can send the others.
I am not certain of the authenticity of this work, as these things are difficult to know without carefully examining the work in person and conducting a bit of research. However, I will say that $15,000 in the secondary market for something like this is an excellent price.
Regarding authenticity and value, I can recommend contacting Bonhams auctions http://www.bonhams.com/auctions/
, as they could perhaps be of some assistance.
