-----Question-----
I purchased a picasso print and can't find any information on it Could I send you a jpeg?
Thank you for your help
-----Answer-----
Deb--I am not much of a computer person and don't know what a jpeg is?  I do know this much:  my email was set up to not open files from addresses it doesn't recognize.  If you have an address I can go to and view the piece, I would be willing to take a look.  Alan Klevit.

Answer
Deb--I recognize the painting that you have a reproduction of, but do not know its name.  It certainly is not signed, not in person, not in the plate.  The signature was on the painting, and was reproduced as part of the image.  Picasso had nothing to do with it and never conceived it as a print.  Like 90 percent-Plus of the Picasso prints I looked at, it has no value.  It can be bought from a poster/reproduction shop for about $20 + the frame [another $50?].  Represented any other way would be dishonest.  I hope that clears things up.  Alan Klevit

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.
