Q. Hello, I recently purchased a print at a local auction. It is entitled Blue Bird and REd Berries. It is numbered 144 of 200 and bears the signature Ikki Matsomoto. I was able to locate the artisit web site but have not been able to make contact with him to verify that this item is indeed one of his works. It was beautifully framed by a wild life gallery here in Kansas City but they have since gone out of business.
A. Bonnie,

My educated guess tells me that this is definitely one of Ikki's serigraphs. He had his gallery on Sanibel Island in Florida for many years, and has since returned to Ohio, where he first applied his skills, and also where he met Charley Harper who had a distinctive influence on his style.

Q. I just wrote to you about the water striders print that we have then I read more of the Q & A s that you have posted and suddenly got concerned that we need to get values on our serigraphs for insurance purposes. If I send you a list of our collection, can you give estimates of value? What all do you need to know? Most of them were purchased, framed, from Frame House. Also, we don't have all of the "commentaries" which included the names and Charley's explanations. Do you have those, or do you know if they will be in the book which will be available in August?

Q. I have a signed and numbered Charles Harper "Wood Duck". I have not been able to find a comparable litho on line. Is it valuable? Thanks
