Fine Art/rembrabt


hello, I have a print of young lady. The bottom of print says YOUNG GIRL AT AN OPEN HALF DOOR;REMBRANDT. DUTCH 1606-1669.  A smaller print right under the picture says Mr.and Mrs. M.A. Ryerson collection. Is this something I should look into or only a simple wall hanging? thank you

Hard to say without seeing it in person.

Heres what to look for:

1. Hand signature or plate signature.
2. Type of paper? If it's investment art, the paper will most likely be a rag paper or thick, good quality print paper.
3. Limited edition numbers on the lower left.
4. Any writing on the back.

Also, you need to know where the art came from.

Go back to the person you got it from and ask where they got it etc.

The Ryerson Collection is probably the same as the one at the Art Institute of Chicago.

It could be a reproduction of a work in that collection.

Sounds like you have homework to do.

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.
