Customer Question

Hi Nora
I have a drawing which was created by a Giuseppe Focarelli. Apparently he has had private and public exhibitions in Italy and US. I was wondering if you could find out how much an original drawing from him would be.

Hi, Do you have a link or page where you found the information that this artist exhibited in the US and Italy? ~Nora

To not really. I did a search on the Internet in Adelaide south Australia where Guiseppe lived. His name and family are well well known due to the criminal activities by his son and grandson. That's where I read he had private exhibitions in Italy. The other information I just found on the Internet Sorry I'm not that helpful. I have a document that I have at work that comes from the Italian messagerio. They did an interview with him. I can send it tomorrow but it's written in Italian
