Question
Catalda Girl
Catalda Girl  
I am wondering who the artist might be of this lovely print. I did read the info given on this site about some of the history with Catalda Arts.

I have had her for quite some time and bought her at an estate sale in the late 80's - maybe $25?
The only stamped info on the print is:
off print, top right corner - Copyright 1943 - Catalda Fine Arts, Inc., N.Y.C.
bottom left on print - C - F.A. INC.

Any information and ballpark value would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time,
Lisa

Answer
I have only seen low end decorative art from this company. It's not really my field but I have checked out many of these types of questions and tend to find the same or similar print online at a low price. Also, when we look at art with medium to high value, we look for a hand signature and hand numbering along with the original certificate of authenticity. You can always follow up with me at my email: collectdali@aol.com

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.
