Home Celebrity Arnold Schwarzenegger An Artist? Rare Lithograph Goes Up for Auction, Estimated Price...

How much is a piece of art by Arnold Schwarzenegger worth? We’re about to find out. Clark’s Fine Auctions of Los Angeles has put a Schwarzenegger lithograph up for sale on April 26th. The estimated worth if $100-$300.

Clark’s says: “The lithograph is from an original painting by Arnold Schwarzenegger and hand signed by him, as the tirage sheet reflects. It comes in the original portfolio case and includes the tirage.”

Who even knew the former Governor of California and the ex-Mr. Maria Shriver fancied himself an artiste? He’s really a Renaissance man.

The drawing, lot 173, is called “Inner City Games.” The description: “INNER CITY GAMES, color lithograph, signed in pencil, from the numbered edition 100, image 18 x 14”, full margins, with portfolio case and text, a few speckles in margins, otherwise in good condition.  $100/300″

Maybe Maria wants to put it up and use it as a target. Seriously, maybe there’s a whole collection there, and Arnold has a new career!

    Paintings reproduced result in reproductions.

    Lithographs are original works of visual art that must be “wholly executed by hand by the artist and excludes any mechanical and photomechanical processes.” [U.S. Customs]

    In other words, lithographs versus reproductions are not interchangeable, much less the same.

    Under California Civil Code 1738-1745, if you sell a reproduction for $100, you must disclose it as a reproduction. Failure to do so, may include but not limited toL refund, interest, treble damages and $1,000 per occurrence.

    Caveat Emptor!
