QUESTION: not sure how to post photos. please advise where i can send them

Answer
Hello Rebecca,

I have received the images of your piece.  Based on the texture of the work, I believe this to be a reproduction of one of Degas' paintings (it does not appear to me as brushstrokes that define the figures).  

However, I have included the contact information for the current experts on Degas' unique original works below.  Only the below individuals have the authority to authenticate a potentially unique work by Degas.
