looks like chagall's style to me, but without a signature on the painting, its probably worthless and impossible to authenticate without spending money to do it. buying unidentified unauthenticated fine art is risky.

er btw i guess my question would be IS it possible to find out if its a chagall if i had it?
if so, isnt it kinda suspicious that the person selling it wouldnt of done this?

If he is selling it, he obviously doesn't care. Some people just aren't art appreciators and don't care either way, but yes, it is kind of suspicious to me. You could probably have it authenticated but my guess is that would be quite expensive to do so, probably more than the price that the piece is selling for at the moment.

although, if it is authentic, couldn't it be worth 10x the amount it's selling for AND the cost of authenticating it?

If it's cheap, buy it. It's nice art anyways. :wink:

i was joking about it mostly, theres no way its a chagall
anyone who knew enough about chagall to recognize his style would realize the IMMENSE value of it and get it IDed immediatley by a pro
