De Grazia Expert + Appraiser Opportunity June 27!!!

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009 | Collector Savvy tips, General | No Comments

Saturday, June 27 from 10 am – 4 pm at the De Grazia Foundation located in Tucson at 6300 North Swan Road (exit Ina Road from I 10, heading East)  520 299-9191

Lance Laber, a true Ted (Ettore) De Grazia expert will be available to authenticate your De Grazia item, be it a painting, drawing, print, ceramic, jewelry, etc.

Correspondingly Corinne Cain, ASA Accredited Senior Appraiser Fine Arts as well as American Indian Arts will be on hand to identify the value of authentic De Grazia items.

There are large quantities of both intentional and unintentional De Grazia fakes in homes across America. 

An “unintentional fake” is an artwork made to simply practice the look of someone’s work appealing often to a budding artist.  The artist does not have a financial agenda.

An “intentional fake” is made with the intention of passing as a real painting by the artist, typically to realize financial gain. 

Both types of fakes; however, can cause confusion and potentially disappointment.

If you have not visited the Foundation before, you will be amazed!  Plan an extra 30 – 60 minutes to visit the facility.  It is fascinating and unique!!!

Both the event and access to the Foundation are available FREE of CHARGE!

This event coincides with the celebration of Ted De Grazia’s 100th birthday. 

Use a mapping option online to facilitate your finding the Foundation with ease.

See you there!
