Fine Art/what do I have?


I am in need of some help, I have a Picasso print, litho or copy, not sure which. The item in question is called Jester on horseback. I have not been able to get to much information, the only picture I can find is the Virginia Museum. How does one tell the difference between a print, litho? This item is on some kind of fiber board?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Many Picasso works are on a heavy archival paper. Arches paper is a common type used for original lithographs.
Reeves and other RAG papers are used for Etchings and Engravings. If the piece is not framed, you can hold it up to the light and see the watermarks. If it is framed, leave it in the frame to make sure you do not damage it.

If you are trying to sell it, send images and any written info about the work to:

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.
