Hi Dennis,
My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help with your Marie Laurencin.

Do you happen to know whether this is a print or an original hand-painted work? Or would you like me to help tell you which you have?

Could you very kindly attach a photo and one of the signature.

Also, how big is it (not including the mat and frame)?

Many thanks and wait to hear.


Once you have the photos in your computer, it's a simple matter to attach them. Just click on the paperclip icon, located above the text box where you are typing to me. If there's no paperclip, click on the "Add files" tab.

If you get stuck go here for help.

Thanks for the measurements and the confirmation that it's an original.

Any chance of a photo of it?
