Fine Art/Marcel Vertes lithographic originale


I picked up a framed 13" x 16" (frame size) by artist Marcel Vertes. The border inside is signed Lithographic originale at bottom left and Vertes (underlined) bottom left. It is of a standing female nude in front of a sitting artist(?) with a smoke in mouth, an upraised right hand with a drawing pen (?) and a sketch pad. In background behind sitting artist appears to be a standing person (female?) possibly in front of an easel. Black pencil like drawing on brownish paper with blue and tan color washes.
Any ideas?

Sounds like an original lithograph.  The artist's works are listed on various websites. I noticed some Giclee prints, those are not worth comparing as the artist had nothing to do with them.  You might contact some of the online galleries that list the artists works and find out what they are selling original lithos for.  I myself am more of a Dali Picasso Miro broker.  If you need a formal appraisal, I have a good reference. To request that info, email me at:

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.
