    Dear Florence, The museum does not evaluate or authenticate works of art. We recommend you consult a reputable art dealer, appraiser, or auction house. The following published reference works may also be helpful in finding out the value of an artwork in your own collection: Annual Art Sales Index, Gordon’s Print Price Annual, Leonard’s Annual Price Index of Art Auctions, and Mayer’s International Auction Records. If you would like to contact our curatorial assistant, Joyce Baker, at jbaker@gibbesmuseum.org or 843.722.2706 x37, she may be able to help with additional information. Thank you! Lasley
