Dear Yassine,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry and for your patience!

The presented object appears to be a mixed media (pencil and watercolor) paper sketch of a female figure in a traditional Spanish costume. The work measures approximately 9 x 11 in. and has been attributed to the French artist, Francis Picabia (1879-1953) due to the presence of the signature at the bottom right of the composition. This piece is in good condition and no severe damage is visible in the images provided.

The presented object is very similar but not identical to this work, which is currently listed for sale at Galerie Patrice Trigano in Paris: https://www.galeriepatricetrigano.com/en/works/view/18

Therefore, the unfortunate conclusion from this investigation is that the work of art presented is most likely a forgery, which holds no market value.

If you have questions or concerns, I would recommend that you get in touch with our authentication team by email at [email protected].

Kind regards,
Anne
