Cuban Art & What Some is Worth Outside Cuba

                  Have you ever wondered if any of that Art that I post is really worth anything. I have inquired at times about the value, both financial and in respect to credibility, of the Art that I see hanging in the many galleries that I visit. Some of the prices for the larger pieces belonging to the older and more famous Artists can run you well into the thousands of dollars. It wasn't always like that I heard. In the beginning when Cuban Art was being discovered, the Cubans didn't know how much value their works contained. Today their Art goes for much more than those early days and some of their Artists have become well known in the Global Art Community. As I've always maintained, I know nothing about Art but I imagine that it's a matter of personal taste. If you like something, you're willing to pay what is asked or at least negotiate a price you can live with.
                  Below are prices asked for some of the Art that's been available outside Cuba. You'll notice that the more famous artists such as Roberto Fabelo can ask a lot more for their artwork. I hope you find it as interesting as I did. By the way....all these paintings come with papers of authenticity.
