Question
Some years ago I aquired a poster of a print that has a Picasso signature on it and have always been curious whether it has a name or is even a poster of an original work by Picasso.It has driven me crazy so perhaps you can shed some light. It is the young girl from The Family of Saltimbanques in the pink dress but instead of her hand on the basket of flowers she has her hand on a the head of a dog similar to the Boy With Dog.Thank you for your time

Answer
Karon--it could be a reproduction of a painting by Picasso.  I have numerous books of all his graphics and numerous--but not all--of his paintings.  I quickly looked at paintings and did not see the image you described.  Sorry.  Good luck.  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.
