Georges De Marco (1906 - 1990)

is a listed artist from France.

This piece is a print of one of his still life paintings done circa 1950 -1960.

If you look with a magnifying glass, you will see a series of dots that make up the lithographic printing process. I can see these dots when I enlarge the signature close-ups in the areas around the signature. This type of print was usually finished with a varnish texture that gave the surface illusion of paint strokes.

This print has a current value of $70 to $90 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com,
Ebay and letgo.com (local).

You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get good feedback for answering.

I have looked at it with a magnifying glass the only dots I see are the little squares in the canvas showing through
Antique Expert: Rarewares, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 10 months ago

Yes, that is the indication of a lithographic print. This is 100% not an original painting.

I have added an extreme example of what I mean.

To end this one, please click the stars in the upper right and hit submit.
A good feedback is the only way I am paid by the site.
This action does not cost you anything extra.
