COA, Herman Darvick
COA, Herman Darvick  
I purchased a 'Dali' signed lithograph back in 2006 from a TV auction(Jimmy's Showcase Auction, Hollywood, CA). They titled it 'Communications'. it has a COA from Herman Darvick on the back. The lithograph is 8" high by app. 11" wide(about the size of a piece of paper). it is encased in a beautiful frame. I've been researching this litho online and have found no mention of this piece anywhere. The 'lithograph', has a 'Salvadore Dali' signature bottom left hand corner and a date(193?). and then the word 'dali' is ''written'', above the signature on the left hand side of the litho. In my research I've found a few places that question Herman Darvick's COA. Your thoughts?? the auction house is no longer in business.

Answer
Darvick was part of an autograph club and I don't think he would bill himself as an expert qualified to authenticate signed Dali "Lithographs"? It looks like you have a page taken out of a book and then signed. I'd check out the autograph market with what you have, we would not be able to sell that where I work.

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.
