Fine Art/Marc Chagall

Question
Dear Dan

Sorry to bother you but could you help? I have two oil paintings by a
artist who signs in the bottom right corner as marc. The rear of the
pictures has arts Nicois, Nice and the frames have a gold placque with the
name Marc on. I see you are a specialist of marc Chagall pictures and I
was interested to know if he always signs his work with his full name?

I can if required send a photo of both paintings.

My father purchased the pictures from a large house sale in the late 70's.

Thank you for taking time to answer this email.

Nigel


Answer
I checked my image archives of signatures and all the ones I've sold in the past were signed with both first and last name. There are also authentic works that were unsigned because they were removed from hand illustrated books by Chagall. You will need a proper appraisal for the work.  Appraisers charge their own fees, i can refer you to the one we use if you like.
To request his info, send me an email request.

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.
