QUESTION: I have a black and white sketch on canvas I purchased several years ago from an art shop going out of business. Can you tell me if it is a copy or original drawing? it is on canvas and signed by Aldo Luongo. I have attached a copy of a picture I took of it. I would like to know the name of the picture and approx value if possible.

Thanks in advance

Answer
Hi Wanda

I have to say that I am not a Luongo expert - however when this is said I like the quickness showcased in this painting. It is done by a strong hand and it is rather good in terms of composition. I think it looks like an original Luongo.

However if you want to be sure then pay a visit to Christies or Sotheby's - They will be able to tell you more.

Best Regards, Soren
