Description and history

This is a hand-signed poster/print by Peter Max Finkelstein October 19, 1937.

This piece is called an autographed poster. It is a poster that was hand signed by the original author of the painting. It is different than a limited edition print, as the poster isn’t numbered. 

The poster was signed in the exhibition of Frankel Gallery, Palm Beach exhibition Dec 11- Jan 15, 1987

Shortly after this show Max sued Kenneth Frankel, the gallery owner. “I can tell you there`s no substance to any of his claims,” said Frankel, who first met Max at a party in New York in 1971. “It’s hard to say why Peter does what he does. I happen to think Peter is a great artist. I thought of him as a great friend.” Some said that it was the envy of John Lennon’s hit show that followed the Max show. Max denied this claim.

Nevertheless this interesting story from the exhibition, Peter Max (born Peter Max Finkelstein, October 19, 1937) is a German-American artist known for using bright colors in his work. Works by Max are associated with the visual arts and culture of the 1960s. This piece has a value, but it isn’t unique, for instance, you can find a past auction sale here:

How to sell it

Art pieces are difficult to sell, you will need some time to find a buyer, so be patient!

To sell the items, I would recommend doing so through the internet. You have plenty of options, for instance:

– Ebay, Craiglist, Etsy, Facebook ads, Amazon marktplace

I would probably go ahead and take a couple of good pictures, like described here:

Then I would use the provided description as a text to the ad, and an attractive ad title will make it.

There isn’t any special difference between selling it on Etsy, FB or Amazon. I would recommend to upload the same ad to at least two or three platforms. It will ensure a high visibility of the ad.

The asking price can be close to the value, it depends upon how fast you want to sell. In general, an agressive strategy of 20% price cut will work great, however it depends upon your specific location.

About the valuation method

To value this item I have considered the results from past auction sales. Keep in mind that the final price can be different from asking prices that you can find on the internet. You can see ads on the internet with different asking prices. However, a very high asking price doesn’t normally find cash from a buyer. 

That’s why our method comprises searching and comparing similar past sale results that had a buyer. That’s why we can provide an accurate estimation of this item.

For art pieces, remember that it isn’t the same a print, a limited edition print or an original art piece. If the artist can’t be identified, the value assigned corresponds to the quality and potential interest of the market for the painting.
