What does this mean?

Hello Dean,

Thank you for your appraisal inquiry with MeArto. The item presented appears to be a reproduction lithographic print after a 1935 painting by Pablo Picasso (Spanish; 1881 – 1973) titled "Head of a Woman (Olga Picasso)." The print is signed in plate and numbered 27 of an edition of 50. This print was published after Picasso death and numbered by an unknown hand. The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of this image and other lithographic reproductions after Picasso. Thank you and please take care.

I paid a lot more than that! I asked for a letter of authenticity and was given a hand printed one by the store owner. My question is, what exactly is a print? numbered, etc., it is a reproduction but I am clueless on how it is done, and so on. this will help me in future endeavors

Hello Dean,

There are many different types of prints. Essentially, a print is an image produced in multiples. Prints are usually after an original image (painting or drawing) but can be produced as an original in multiples, meaning the artist first produced the image as a print in multiples.

A print can be produced by the artist or someone else. What give a print value is whether the print was actually produced by the artist or not, the edition run, and print type. In relation to this print, it was not produced by Picasso, thus the lack of higher value, usually relating to Picasso prints. This print appears to be a lithographic print, either a photo-offset lithograph or a color lithograph. Either way, Picasso did not produced this image as a print or an edition as noted on the print.
