|Comment||Dear Sir, I'm impressed by your kindness and skills. Thank you very much for your professional work and interesting comments. Experts like you Sir are preventing ignorants like me from false ideas that might unnecessarily grow up in minds. I understand that personal examination is essential for precise opinion, and I will follow your advice to show this work to some local dealers. You have inspired me to learn more about etching and engraving techniques. You suggested a hand embellished etching, Sir, and I think I have other work that could exemplify your clues. It is a large scene of cattle emerging out of the fog and crossing stream. The black ink patterns are distinctly convex – this might be even seen by naked eye and the rest is hand embellished with pastel paint, I think. I will ask about this work in other question tomorrow, because it is unsigned and I can't recognize author or even provenance – could be American or European. One more time let me express thankfulness. I appreciate your help. Kind regards, Adrian|
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.
