Fine Art/Picasso "pages from book"


I've recently been seeing several offerings of removed pages from the book
"Toros Y Toreros" with a signature from Picasso in the lower right.  Is this
common?  Or even legitimate?  Whatever insight you can provide is very much
appreciated.  Thank you

Pages from books created by artists are common, however most are signed on the Frontice piece or front page.
While many try to pass themselves off as Picasso Experts, there are really only a few people I trust with authenticating and appraising a Picasso. As an example, Dali works are available from known editions and there are at least 4 people in the industry that have been around since the days Dali was creating these works. With Picasso, you need to make sure it's the real thing. Watch out for EBAY most on that site are not hand signed. If anyone offers you anyting with a "certificate of authenticity" at a low price, this is a red flag.
Also, I would need to see the actual pieces or very good photos and details to make a better judgement.

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.
