Eric, I answered your question with details that should be helpful to you?  Why the negative rating?

If you google that phone number it comes up Atlantis Auctions, not Atlantic.  The promo for the auction says the items are police siezed or confiscated goods. The only concern is that in these situations, goods are sold as is and liability is not placed on the auction house that is selling it. I doubt the auction house sent the works to the proper experts for verification because there would be quite an expense in doing so.

It's always best to do the homework before making a purchase. At this stage you will need to pay an authnticator to verify that you have the real thing.

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.
