Fine Art/winde fine prints

Question
Dear Mr. Klevit,

I have a winde fine print called "Early Spring" by Robert Wood, no. 307.  It's an 8X10.

What can you tell me about the age and value of this print.  My deceased Aunt gave this to me over 10 years ago.  

Answer
Diane--I am not an expert in the art of Robert Wood.  However, this certainly sounds like an offset reproduction, which would have no more value than if it were printed today, regardless of the age of the original.  You could check online for galleries who deal in his work and perhaps contact them, if my answer is not satisfactory.  Good luck.  Alan.

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.
