Fine Art/Dali Alice Suite "Who Stole the Tarts"

Question
Hello.  I have a framed Who Stole the Tarts (Dali) with an authentication from the Sculpture Collectors Limited, NY, certifying this is a mixed-media original heliogravure with superimposed with woodcuts. Signed in the plate by Dali from Portfolio pulled from an edition of 2700 portfolios of which 200 were double suites.  Says "This original is from Portfolio Number 1615."  Is there a chance this may be worth something one day?  Thanks.  Jane

Answer
Yes.  Your detailed description implies you have the authentic version. There was an unauthorized version as well. The engraved signature is not as good as a pencil signature, but the pieces are still good to collect and Dali was involved in the project. Dali hand signed the front page of the book suites these are from. If you are selling it, call our buyer. Not sure if he's interested, but you can check.

Expertise

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.
