Fine Art/Picasso?


Hello Sir.

My Name is Adrian. Please, could you tell me is there a chance that this work was made by Picasso? I can't be 100% sure whether it is a lithography or not I was looking throughout strong mag glass and didn't notice typical dots. There are elements of coil, pencil and pastel technique. Could it be a Picasso's signature in the left middle side above the boat, or is it just my imagination?
Thank you very much for yours time and attention.


While this does not look like any Picasso I have seen, (keep in mind there are thousands), it does have some interesting characteristics. The indentation or pressed border around the image indicates that it was printed with pressure, as in an etching or engraving. You might have a hand embellished etching? Hard to say without examining in person. The boats might be fishing boats, this is seen in quite a few works by Spanish Masters, but the female in the image has a different look than the ones seen in works by Dali and Picasso, so I can't really say?
I have a large collection of books with both Dali and Picasso, I don't recall ever seeing this image? Sorry I can't be of more help. You might take it to a few dealers who sell old etchings and see if you can get an opinion.

Best regards,


Fine Art

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.
