Soutine – Exhibit prolongation at the Pinacothèque de Paris


 

Pinacothèque de Paris

Chaïm Soutine
Prolongation until 2 march 2008

This exhibition shows a brilliant artist, an inquisitor of souls and minds, through
approximately 80 paintings, most of which are totally re-discovered works, exhibited
for the very first time. Many canvases were restored for this occasion. The ensemble
comes from the most important private collections as well as from international
museums: French, Japanese, Swiss and American.

Today the Pinacothèque de Paris wants to throw a new light on the works by this
essential artist from the start of the 20th century, thanks to loans shown for the first
and, quite probably, the last time.

  1. I HAVE PAINTING THAT WAS PURCHASED BY A FAMILY MEMBER SOME 50 YEARS AGO OF THE ‘LA CATHEDRAL DE CHARTRES’ FROM A STORE LOCATED IN BIGHAMTON NY. IS THERE ANY WAY TO FIND OUT ITS VALUE I BELIEVE IT SAYS #688

  2. According to your information, we suppose that it is not a painting by Soutine but a print.

    In that case, one has to make the distinction between a fine art print and a reproduction.

    Fine art prints are a “multiple original” made by hand, one impression at a time. Production methods that do not involve the artist inevitably degrade the value of the print.

    Since around 1915, prints of limited edition are numbered, as they are today, “1/100,”, 2/100,” 3/100,” – usually signed and numbered by the artist in pencil. There are usually two numbers separated by a slash, (for example: 4/25). This means that 25 prints are the total impressions of this numbered edition, while 4 is the specific designation for that particular impression.

    A “reproduction”, on the other hand, is a photo-mechanically reproduced image, using a printer, without any intervention of the artist, generally in Open Edition. Reproductions have little monetary value.

    In general, if you want to find out the value of a print, we can only advise you to go to see a gallery specialized in prints.
