Fine Art/Leon Danchin

Question
Alan,

I wondered whether you would be able to provide me with some information in relation to a Leon Danchin Painting which I have. It was bought in France around 100 years ago. I cannot find a painting on the internet anywhere which is similar to this. I think the painting is original and have taken photographs of it. Please could you provide me about where I can get further information in relation to how much this would be valued at and also to confirm that this is an original painting.

Thanks so much

Answer
Katie--Not one Danchin painting has sold at auction the past 24 months, according to a service I belong to, but you could try Sotheby's or Christie's.  Good luck.  Alan Klevit

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.
