    The prices that prints are fetching at auction are somewhat low at the moment. Apparently some 30% less than 2 years ago. Plymouth Auction Rooms recently sold this print for £675. A Gallery might ask £1,500 – £1,600, perhaps more. I have seen a Gallery asking £2,500 for an equally collectable print “Warren Woods.” I would say that the print could perhaps command £1,500 in a private sale if the market picked up again. You might not see much of a profit now though, unless you are prepared to hold out for a price, and find someone prepared to pay it. Taking all this into account I would value your print at £950. I wonder what others think?

    I have been told that straight after Lenki's death the framing shops/galleries doubled the price of them.They sold out so off they went rubbing their hands in glee and bought up prints all over, then tripled the price. Surprise surprise people stopped buying prints,these outlets then told everyone that the Lenki market was finished.Next thing is they tried to sell them in the auction rooms to get some money back,prices still too high.Eventually they had to take what they could get less than they paid.In effect they brought the print market down due too greed.I hear one gallery in Plymouth now sells coffee and sanis instead of prints.

    Why have prints gone down in value? Prices initially shot up following Roberts passing in August 2002.
