Question
Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol  
This painting is at a garage sale for $75 and they are claiming that it is an Andy Warhol original. I looked on the internet and could not find anything.It looks like his style... just looking for an opinion I guess. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks,
Selinda

Answer
It's interesting because if you google Andy Warhol pastel drawings, there are some that have a similar style or pallet, but who in their right mind would give away an original Warhol for such a price? Signed Warhol prints sell in the thousands, so originals are very high end. The Warhol Commission disbanded some time ago, so getting things authenticated is much tougher than it used to be. Andy Warhol was a concept artist so he was more an idea guy that told others what to create, then he signed it, so finding things by his own hand is pretty rare.

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.
