Fine Art/Pablo Picasso Lithographs



I have purchased two Pablo Picasso Lithographs that I would like to learn more about.  They are marked 4.10.68.I and 23.4.68.  They come with certificates of authenticity which state that they were published in September 1969 by the magazine Advant Garde.  Are they real lithographs or just copies?  I have included photos. Thanks

Notice that the certificate says "after", which means there was an edition that was signed, and then these were made later as a 2nd or later edition. In most cases they use the original printing plates from the 1st edition, but the artist does not sign the afters. While they are not hand signed, they are still more valuable than decorative art. I'd have to do research to find the actual value as I have not sold these specific prints. My email address is:

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.
