The presented object appears to be a pencil drawing on paper with measurements of approx 9 x 6 inches. The drawing shows the face of a woman. The artwork depicts a style and motif which reminds of the famous artist Pablo PICASSO (1881-1973). It appears to be signed. Neither the style, the quality of the composition nor the handwriting are comparable to authenticated artworks by Pablo PICASSO (1881-1973). It appears that this artwork is a silkscreen print in two colors with an interpretation of a painting by Picasso.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
The named arguments classify this artwork as fake or a copy which has no value in the art market.
With kind regards,
