My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. The next step would be for me to see pictures of the painting,signature and any labels on the back of the completed framing.Use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures one at a time.
It is a vague rather than a specific question, so I will opt out and allow another expert
to answer. I helped you on the Charlot print that you had a few weeks ago and thought this might be
another specific piece. Good luck!
Jean Charlot (1898 - 1979)
"Jean Charlot was born in France in the 1890's. He had Aztec ancestors and moved with his mother to Mexico after studying at the Ecole de Beaux arts in Paris and serving as an artillery officer at the end of WWI. He quickly established himself in the art community of Mexico City in the very early 1920's and befriended Diego Rivera and David Alfaro Siqueiros and Jose Orozco, main figures in the Mexican Mural movement of the early twenties that quickly spread to the USA.
Charlot and the others visited the USA and taught - mostly in New York City - the true fresco technique, which Charlot taught to the other Mexican muralists. In 1947, Jean Charlot moved his family to Colorado Springs, Colorado to take over as head of the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center Art School from which Boardman Robinson had just retired. He also taught at the private school for boys in Colorado Springs, The Fountain Valley School.
Charlot resigned over a dispute involving tenure and other differences of opinion with the administration of the Art Center. He moved to Hawaii to teach at the University and remained there for about thirty years until his death in 1979. He won many awards for his work.
He has written many scholarly essays and books and lectured and taught at a host of schools. He is the person who singlehandedly resurrected the work of Jose Guadalupe Posada, the great Mexican engraver of popular art - especially the "Day of the Dead" skeleton figures that are so well known today."

What size is your card? Is the piece original or a print?
I am sorry but your question is too broad.
I will release your question so that the other pros will see it.
I will be happy to help with your collection, to start, what year does the correspondence begin and for how many years on does this continue? Can you please send a photo of a grouping of Christmas cards to start.
Thank you for these images. How many cards do you have total and can you group them into standard printed cards, hand made cards with original drawings and hand press printed cards? So any of the typewritten letters have small 'doodles' or drawings contained in them?
I sent an offer for a live phone call. It would be more effective to discuss your archive collection by phone than through typing back and forth.
The cards are where the value is, a number count of what you have of each card and original drawings will help with assessing value.
Would you like to accept the premium services offer for a phone call?
Understood. As mentioned prior, this is a large scope and better handled by discussing the archive than by typing back and forth. I will opt out and open your question again to all the experts.
