Fine Art/Authentic Lithnograph?


I have recently inherited a famous Picasso lithograph from 1960 called "La Danse" or "Dance for Peace".  See the following link  It in not hand signed but it is double watermarked top and bottom on johannot paper. It is old but in good condition. The size is correct according to the Picasso website. I was wondering if there is any way to tell if this was one of the original pieces but just unsigned?  If it is the real deal, any idea what it might be worth?  Thanks for your help!

There are some un-signed artists proofs by Picasso that fetch big dollars, but there are also a large number of replicas that have no value. The only way to know, is to have a pro appraise it for you.  I can refer you if you like. They have their own fees etc. and do not work for us.

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.
