I hjave several Fiehl reproductions, bought in the late 1950's. The story I was told was that students of differing artists were asked to varnish using the same brish strokes as the original. These were then sold to support them. Originally, they casy around 50-60 but I did see a price of 100 quoted some years ago. As the previous correspondent said, enjoy!!

Genuine Friel reproductions were produced using a secret image transfer system and then over-painted in oils by Academy of Arts trained artists who copied the brush strokes of the original painter; for instance some Van Gogh reproductions were done with a pallette knife to reproduce the oil texture.  Unfortunately they do not fetch much more than 100, which does not reflect the work put into them. They originally sold in the 1960's for 50.

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.
