Question
In the '80s I worked in a print shop that reproduced artists' paintings into signed limited edtion silkscreen prints. I have an Alice Neel, Collette, Lowel Nesbitt and other artists as well. Some of the prints are signed personally to me others are artist proofs. Could you give me an idea of their value and wheter or not the prints that are signed specifically to me would decrease thier value. Thanks.

Answer
Francine--it appears that Neel's graphics [lithographs and serigraphs] have sold in the $800-1600 range the past few years.  A Nesbitt floral serigraph sold just a month ago at Christie's in New York for $950.  Can't find anything on Collette.  As for the dedicated pieces, they probably are worth less, but I don't know how much.  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.
