Fine Art/Where to sell Jose Ortega signed print?

Question
Hi,
I have a Jose Ortega (1921-1991) signed 22x25 print that I am interested in selling. It's unnamed but numbered 24/120 and still shrink wrapped on board with newspaper clipping about artist on back. I'm a neophyte collector in St. Pete, Fla. Does it make any difference in price that I don't have a certificate of authenticity? if so, how much? It's clearly authentic. Where's the best place to sell it? online? I will send images once I have your email address.

Answer
There is not a big demand for the artists works.  Very much a niche artist.

Ebay is the WORST place, you will be offered pennies.

Send images to collectdali@aol.com

Please include the text from this message so I have history.  I can refer a few places to try and sell it once I verify that we are talking about the same artist.

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.
