Question
Hello Mr. Evans, like one of your other questions I also have a picture from Catalda of new York only my painting reads-
Title-8424
Regattes at Argenteuiny
Artist-Monet
Frame No-SA512
Order No- 3900
also in pencil was the number 5.527/2
Worth anything? Thanks, Debra

Answer
Dear Debra,

As I'm sure you read, Catalda Fine Arts produced reproductions of famous paintings or paintings by famous artists during the mid-twentieth century. Unfortunately, the work that you have by Catalda is a reproduction with only decorative value (no real collectible value). Catalda Fine Arts has a somewhat marred reputation, as they were involved in litigation for many years regarding copyright violations to the images that they produced.

The values can vary on these Catalda works based on factors such as the desirability of the image, the artist, size, condition, and framing. Even for a reproduction, if it is a nice, well-framed work, a few hundred dollars might be a reasonable price. I hope that this information can be of some assistance. Andrew Evans
