Fine Art/Picasso Print help, please

Question
Alan--

Thanks for your reply. If my print were not an offset, or mirror image, would you have an easier time placing or appraising it?  The book I got my image from has an image of another print on the same page.  The notes on that print state: "Scraped lithographic ink solid plate, cut out and pasted on lithographic paper and transferred to stone.  18 artist reserved proofs."  The notes on "Bullfight Scenes," from which the image on my print comes, reads "Same working method as for the preceding lithograph."

Any further thoughts?

Thanks again!


Answer
Michael--there is no such reference in the Mourlot Catalog Raisonee for Picasso.  I simply don't know what to make of it.  Perhaps call/email Sotheby's and tell them you are interested in selling it, and then "what do you think it could bring or what is it worth?"  They have many more records of all their sales simply not available to me.  Good luck.  Alan.

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.
