Question
I cant dessiminate if it is a print or watercolor

Answer
Wonnetta--I would need the piece in front of me to tell for sure, unless it is an offset lithograph, the predominant process for creating reproduction prints.  Look at it through a jeweler's loop or high powered magnifying glass.  Focus on a colorful area.  If there are rows of dots, it is an offset lithograph.  You could also show the piece to an art teacher at a high school or college, who should be able to help.  Alan Klevit.

Expertise

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.

Experience

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.
