Fine Art/chagall lithograph

Question
I have a signed (bottom right) numbered lithograph (though the pic I took
doesn't show the number - bttome left). It's b/w, wht a man and woman on
bottom, a cityscape above them, with a large phallic symbol (eiffel tower?),
and a large sun above that. I don't know the name of the piece, and wonder
what it might be worth.

Thanks in advance for your replyl

Answer
Valerie--A dealer, especially who is familiar with works by Chagall, might know if the image is by Chagall, and it is worth checking.  If a valid piece by Chagall, it could be worth in the thousands of dollars.  Worth sending a picture to Sotheby for their inspection.  Good luck.

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.
