Think you have come across a “steal”? a framed picture signed “K. Haring” or “Basquiat” ?
Do you see below the image “O.P.E.” followed by Roman numerals and numbers? These are frequently modestly priced, as they represent open-editioned reproductions. Signatures are reproductively printed as well, not individually signed.
Experienced both artists’ O.P.E. examples in a Scottsdale furniture consignment shop today. Understand they are being distributed nationally to similar businesses.
Savvy collectors need to understand what they are looking at.
