Yayoi kusama drawing on paper
12” x 10
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The presented object appears to be a mixed media drawing of a shoe. The drawing measures approximately 12 x 10 in. and has been attributed to the Japanese contemporary artist, Yayoi Kusama (born 1929) due to the presence of the signature at the top of the composition and a stamp on the verso. This piece is in good condition and no severe damage is visible in the images provided.
Unfortunately, neither the style, the quality of the composition nor the handwriting are comparable to authenticated artworks by Yayoi Kusama. Consider the following comparable:
Therefore, the unfortunate conclusion from this investigation is that the work of art presented is most likely a forgery, which holds no market value.
