|Comment||Thank you for your quick response. I have sent an email to Sotheby's to find out what they charge to evaluate the painting. If anything comes of it I will let you know. I don't want to get my hopes up that it might be an original, but it's hard not to be excited about the possibility that it might be. It's everyone's dream--to find that hidden treasure! Either way, it is still an adventure and an opportunity to learn. Again, my thanks for your assistance. Vicky|
I can provide sound advice on buying, collecting & understanding fine art, especially original works by 20th century masters and leading contemporary artists. I can also explain techniques used to create original works and offer tips on how to tell whether or not a piece is an original work of art.
I have been active in the art world for twenty-seven years. I owned and operated four galleries and a wholesale showroom on both coasts. We specialized in original works by 20th century masters and emerging artists. I have been an art consultant, artist's representative, lecturer, auctioneer, and curator. I had a radio show for two years, "Today's Art World with Alan Klevit" [Washington, D.C.]; hosted two television shows on the arts for six years [Los Angeles Area]; have written for numerous local papers and international art magazines; and currently write a syndicated column, "The Art Beat." I conduct art auctions for charities throughout the United States, and am a frequent speaker/auctioneer on upscale cruise ships, and at civic organizations and local television shows.
