Hi Andrew,
Thanks for taking my question. About 30 or so years ago, my husband purchased some art at an estate sale.  We have a Raoul Dufy signed, framed piece and being that it is on watercolor paper it is difficult for me to tell if it the real deal.  Although it lacks the vibrant colors, size and richness typical of Dufy, it is consistent with some of his works.  

The scene is of horses and jockeys at track with a village and trees in the background.  I have not been able to find an image of it on my internet searches.  What do you suggest to determine it's authenticity?  
thank you,
Laura W.
