Topic: Maurice Utrillo, V, 1926 Original?

my grandfather has owned this painting for many years and is curious if its authentic, when observed up close the painting has visual depth in the brush strokes, not a flat surface.

Hello spazor123,
    I don't think we'll be able to authenticate it here, unfortunately. I think you should contact Jean Fabris in Paris, which is (under French law) the owner of the droit moral, or "morals rights" to Utrillo's work.

Here is an article explaining a bit more: http://www.theartnewspaper.com/articles … illo/29720.

You can contact the Association Maurice Utrillo here: http://www.utrillo.com/fr/node/24.

Good luck!
