Can you tell me if this etching is a real Renoir and how much it is worth?

Answer
Dear Alisha,

It takes close examination of a print to identify the type of printing, age, and other necessary information to determine if a print is an original release or later reproduction. Renoir is one of the most reproduced artist's in history and he did not have large releases of his prints. You will need to take this to a local art expert for determination. I hope this is helpful.

Best regards,
Dolly
