Question I have a 16x20 pencil signed Gordon Grant lithograph that is pencil signed. The print is titled "Wings".
I would like to know the value and how collectible his lithographs are.
Answer Dear Donna,
Gordon Grant, born in San Francisco in 1875, is considered one of America’s foremost marine artists. During the early century Grant painted the U.S. Constitution and prints created after the painting was sold to raise funds for the ships preservation. The original painting hangs in the White House. His original signed limited edition prints such as Wings are very collectable and currently sell at retail for $350-400. Condition is everything with works of art on paper. If your print is still in a vintage frame and materials, I suggest you have it professionally framed with acid free archival materials. I hope this is helpful.
I can assist with identification, acquisition, representation, and care of fine art prints and original paintings. I can provide information that will assist you in determining the value of your art; but I do not give valuations on allexperts.
