Fine Art/signed offset lithograph


I recently saw an offset lithograph offered at one of the major New York auction houses that is allegedly hand signed by Picasso.  I did not know Picasso signed any offset lithographs. Do you think it is legitimate?  Also, if I liked the piece and won it during the auction for say $2500-$3500, would I be over paying for something like this?  Thanks for your input.

Some of the modern masters did sign exhibit posters, but I have not seen any that Picasso signed? For $3500.00 you can get an original lithograph hand signed by Salvador Dali with the best paperwork.
Be very careful, there are many that will try to profit from Picasso's name. You could spend up to $1,000.00 just to verify the signature.  If your gut feeling is that something is off, I would ask the auction house if they are willing to obtain an outside experts opinion about the signature.

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.
