Salvador Dali was almost as famous scandal that his fingerprints caused in the art world, as he did for his actual art. There are original etchings, woodcuts, and lithographs by him. The problem is that there is still much that is not his.
“The official catalog of the graphic works of Salvador Dali” by albert field-this is the standard Bible for this artist'S. prints the directory lists not only true art, but most problematic parts as well.
If it is possible to learn the art from the frame. Keep the paper on the light and looking for the watermark on the paper. If you find the infinity symbol in a watermark, the art is a forgery or a fake. Fastest way to test the authenticity concerning Dali.

Check to see if there is any other watermark on the paper to determine it, such as BFK Rives or arches. You will be able to check if it’s the same type of paper used for this image through on-site inspections. To study art under a 10X magnifying glass to see if it is offset lithography, or other media. Not only seen fakes, but I have also seen reproductions of the displacement of the fakes!
Carefully measure art. You take measurements of all the prints from images or printed form and not paper or open Mat. This is the measurement that you will compare with the information in the directory. Don'T just open a book, see the print illustrated and think that everything is OK to Read the description refer to manual, the book that lists the problem, check and recheck. One of the best ways you can protect yourself is to buy from a reputable dealer, who offers to stand behind their guarantee.
