Rare Raoul Dufy Watercolor Landscape (Double Images)
Market Value: $ 10,000.00
Replacement Value: $ 12,500.00
APPRAISER COMMENTS(Emailappraisals.com):

This is another watercolor by Raoul Dufy, a landscape in the artist’s distinctive style. This particular piece is unique in that it is actually two pictures – one on each side of the paper. It also comes with interesting provenance, which adds to the value somewhat. Based on comparative data for other Dufy watercolors recently sold, and considering the similarities and differences for the condition, size, artistic merit, and age, we have valued the subject piece as indicated.

History/Provenance: Provenance: Given personally to famous Jewish artist and survivor of the Nazi Kovno Ghetto, "Ester Lurie" by Raoul Dufy. Painting was purchased from Ester Lurie by the "Yard Gallery" Tel Aviv, Israel. Was in the owners private collection until 1992, then passed on to his family and sold to me.

Is it Leger? Or Picasso mocking Leger? Fall of France?
Here's a painting that speaks for itself. If anyone has any information about this or any thoughts, feel free to pass them on. Painting is in a Dutch frame if that is any clue. Thanks!
