Hello Bergmann,

A black and white photogravure print after the artist Lilian Cheviot entitled "I don't feel quite well today" that was published in 1896 sold for $2400 against a $300 - $370 etsimate at Christie's in Paris.

Here is the link to that auction sale for you:

Hi Bernhard,

I can certainly help you determine if you have an original. In order to do so I will need very clear, in-focus, close-up images of the surface of the print and the small print words, if any, on there. You can send the photos at your convenience and it does not cost extra to do so.

When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.

Hello,

There are 4 images in total attached here to our question thread, of which 3 are the same. I will need to see an extreme close-up of the surface, even closer than the one attached here showing the signature so as to detect the printing process. Please send at your convenience.

There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing on your board, then follow the steps on this link:

or

You can try emailing your images to *****@******.*** and write “For Nora/Antiques” in the subject line of the email.

Photos sent by email do not arrive to me directly nor instantly, they get forwarded to me by admin.

Hi Bernhard,

This is a later machine produced print image of a work by Lilian Cheviot. The size of an original is 28 x 84 cm and if you use a magnifying glass the image surface has a dot matrix pattern indicative of machine printing.
