Dear Donna,
I was told that Picasso left the plate to his second wife, of which she had 500 lithographs made, and this is one. Please note picture of water relief in paper. The image is approximately 24 inches by 30 inches.

Dear Brandon,
First, I think in order to confirm the story of the ex-wife, you would have to have something written referring to that fact — not that I think it would really matter in this case of it not being an original but a lithograph. An original painting from Picasso would be extremely expensive, so lithographs were made. It’s the same quality as an original, signed by the artist, at a fraction of the cost.
I did some research for you and found out Picasso lithograph values are all over the place. The fewer that were made, the higher the value. It seems that editions of 500 aren’t that uncommon. So the values ran in the range of $200 to a few hundred dollars. Some with a limited edition of 10 were in the thousands of dollars range.
I think it would be safe to say you’re looking at $200 and possibly more.
