"Hmm this is an odd one. It looks really broken up to me. Also he usually has some type of underline that goes through the bottom part of his g. Also as far as flow goes it just looks slowly signed to me especially the first part of the last name.…"

"Thanks Michelle. Like you've just said about the flow, placement etc. I'm sure there's a reason Christie's rejected it. They had sold 2 others of the same lithograph, one in England and one in NY and they sold for 13k us and 6k…"

"Thanks Michelle. I absolutely agree that there are differences. Mine almost looks like a slow motion, methodical attempt to replicate. He does seem to alter his signatures though but I do think it's looking more and more like a fake. I had…"

"No need to do that yet. Send them images first, especially a crisp, hi-res closeup of the signature. If they say they don't think it's good, then you can keep it framed on the wall."

"I will submit it to them tomorrow for their review and see what they say. I should pull it off the wall and see if the back has anything on it as well as take measurements."

"Thanks Richard. I was reading on one companies site that Chagall was forged so often that they won't authenticate his work anymore. After comparing other signatures of his from lithographs on rrauction.com as per Steve's suggestion, the r…"
