Degrazia Rectangular Paintings of Cellist and Horn Blower
These were found at a yard sale. On the back, the only thing they say is Macy's. They seem to be quite old. They are both of Mexican musicians...one blowing a long horn and the other playing a cello. Anyone know anything about these?
I have a "reproduction" -- at least that is what is stamped on the wooden frame holding the picture -- of "The Balloon" by De Grazia. Name in lower right hand corner. It is not a print, since there are obvious brush strokes. It's been in a closet for years. Is this worthless?
DeGracia painting name and value
I also have a DeGrazia painting described by someone in an earlier post. It has 2 horses pulling a flat wagon with about 9 indian figures with no faces except on one infant child, the horses have no faces either. I would like to know what this piece is called and what it is worth. It is approx. 14x30.

DeGrazia oil painting
have an oil painting signed by DeGrazia or 4 running horses. similar to his watercolor of running horses but this has 4 horses and is not the 1925 version of 4 horses. Any idea of value? Appears by frame to be old.

DeGrazia Los Ninos
I have print/lithograph/? By DeGrazia. It is signed in the lower left corner by the artist (1978) and there appears to be numbered 1/1
Any idea of the value?
sterling silver figures
My Father was great friends with Ted. together they created the los ninos in silver I have the figures and the molds for them and the signature plates for the mounts. does anyone know if any of these hit the market? the figures are about an inch tall. Rich, is this anything like you have?
I came across a picture being thrown away and hung it in my bedroom where it has been for three years or more. Would like to know if it has any value. It has a stamp that reads Paris in the lower left hand side and a number 90 written in pencil. It is also signed in pencil on the right lower hand side.
Painting signed in 1979
I inherited a framed DeGrazia picture. I think it may be a lithograph, the back is canvas but the front is smooth, and it seems to have yellowed with age. there is a signature in the right botton corner and it was also signed in the bottom left hand corner and dated 1979.
It is similar to a sad sad end; it depicts an indian woman riding a horse and leading a second horse.
I would like to know the name of this picture and an approximate value, if any.

seeking name of artwork
Found a framed DeGrazia with 11 cowboys riding hard, it is black outside edges then he puts white strokes showing movement which turns into a gray to light blue approx11x14 any thoughts?
1926 V Degrazia painting
I came across a painting that is signed V. Degrazia, dated 1926 in pencil at the top of painting, the size is 7.5 x 11 inches . It is a portrait of Indian face and upper body in traditional dress. It is in rough condition , it looks like it is painted on some board or thick cardboard?. Could this be one of his "practice" pieces? it coincides with the time he started "Indian Faces". The signature is not in the style of his later works, perhaps he was still finding his style.
I read in Wikipedia
" The family moved back to America in 1925 when the Morenci mines reopened. This is when Ted paints his very first painting: 'Indian Faces.' It was a crude, cracked canvas piece, which DeGrazia admitted was not very good."
Thank you for any feedback!
De Grazia hand made welded/decorated Gallery Mail box
Saw the posting from 03/2012. I too have the mail box well known to be on Swan Rd. at the gallery. The story is very interesting of how I now own-but it has been authenticated by his family in writing through attorney. It was made by Ted himself. Curious just how many real boxes are out there. Mine is signed and painted--very large.

I have 2 very old pieces of Degrazia artwork. The frames are original as is the art. It has a painted background and the pictures are made with seperate pieces of material.

DeGrazia 1954 Cactus pottery -turquiose
I have 4 pieces of some of DeGrazias art dated 1954. My parents bought it in NM in 1954 from DeGrazia himself. They were molded in molds made from cactus and are very unique, I am trying to find anyone who knows much about DeGrazia's original art work and determining what it would be worth. Anyone know of his cactus pottery?
I am wondering if any of his figurines were made with hair as opposed to full ceramic/pottery?

KINO'S SOLDIERS AND PACK HORSES
I have a painting of "Kino's Soldiers and Pack Horses" signed by DeGrazia. It is framed, under glass. Would this be a print, or an original?

2 orriginal oils "Free as the wind" & "Gemini"
My Father bought 2 pictures from a Studio in Tucson, Arizona called "Gallery in the Sun". The artist is DeGrazia. They are both orriginal paintings with wooden frames. 1st is dated 1977 1/0. Its a picture of 4 wild hores, (1 beige, 1 black, another beige, & the last one is white), running in the wind or water. Its titled "Free as the Wind". The 2nd one is dated 1956 on back of frame 1977 1/0. This picture has 2 guys, (faceless), wearing sombreros & white pants. They have a Mexican blanket around top with guns, and appear to be walking. This one is titled "Gimini". Are these of any Value? What does the 1/0 mean? How would I know if there were reproductions made? I heard that he bured a lot of paintings. Were the ones painted before or after the burning more valued? Thank you for your time. David.

Original 1969 Degrazia "Flowers for the Children"
My original painting was donated to the SanDiego Children's Hospital for a charity auction in 1969. My great uncle purchased it and in 1976 he gave it to me because the child looked somewhat like my mother. The Degrazia studio business card as well as a pasted name Flowers for the Children and The Hospitals name are on the back of a custom wood frame and back. I think the painting is directly on the wood and not on canvas. Can you tell me anything more about this painting?

Degrazia, Merry Little Indian
A relative of mine died this past summer. She was in her nineties when she passed away. My spouse and I inherited many of her personal belongings. Among these items were wonderful examples of Southwestern art. She and her husband wintered in Arizona for many years. As I was going through some of her things, I noticed a painting by DeGrazia. The title is "Merry Little Indian". It is painted on canvas and framed in an 11 by 14 inch frame that was made in Mexico. I wonder if you could tell me if this is an original. Did he ever have copies/prints made on canvas? Or has this been done since his death? On the back, the frame does have a stamp number of "000011." It also has a stamp that says the following:
MERRY LITTLE INDIAN
ARI-LAM, P.O. BOX 1271, TEMPE, AZ 85281
There is also a penciled name that looks like "Nogad Claro" on the back of the frame. It might have been the person that made the frame in Mexico.
I did see there are plates of this same painting for sale.
Any information on this piece of art I have would be greatly appreciated.

Older DeGrazia art works and Locust art works
I was introduced to DeGrazia through Arizona Magazine and went on to investigate his art and life. On a trip to Tucson about 20 years ago I visited his wonderful gallery, chapel, etc. I was able a few years ago to purchase an original Little Madonna and would like to see more of his older works. My wish is to meet Carol some Feb. when I am in Tucson each year.
DeGrazia artist proof

I have just acquired many DeGrazia items that I would like to find out about. There are a few figurines with DeGrazia signed as well as 'judi' (Guild?), several prints that have DeGrazia's name on the right and then he signed in black pen on the left (original signature not printed), these are not the same as the prints you find today, I think they are litho or serigraphs and they were purchased in the 1970's or 80's in Tucson. I also have four sets of 1" miniature DeGrazia plates which are framed. Two frames have 10 1" plates and two have four 1" plates, including one of DeGrazia himself. Anyone have any ideas of value? Thanks.

2 De Grazia paintings
I have 2 De Grazia's and I don't know if they are original or prints. One I inherited from my mother-in-law who was an artist who was from El Paso, called "Navajo Village". The other I bought from an elderly lady in NM called, "Desert Indian Papoose" and she said it was an original. When I looked at the later, it seemed like a water color and it had a square tag on the back in Italics. When I looked at the other, it also had the same square with Italics and title and artist name. Both had the same backing and the one water color was on a cardbord backing and brown frame backing. It's odd that the tag print identifying the artist and painting and the backing are exactly the same. Any comments?
Oil painting of Bullfighter signed Abruzzi
How can I found out history of this painting. It was my Mothers. I am not sure of its age but I know it must be over 40-50 years old. Should I post a picture of it on the net? How can I found out info on it? There is no Bull in the painting just a bullfighter.
I am looking for the name of the artist who painted oils of whimsical nuns...smoking behind the barn, blowing bubbles in the park, etc. These paintings were sold at a gallery in Old Mesilla, New Mexico
De Grazia authentication, etc.

I have a Degrazia painting it appears to be gouache on paper its not a litho.(I have looked at it under a loop) could be mixed media. unusual that it is signed and dated 1948 then pencil numbered 4 of 10. info. anyone?
I just bought a degrazia oil. I looked it up and it is called Navajo mother and child. It looks like an original on canvas and the signature is on bottopm right. I looked on his web site, don't see it as an oil, just a print. So, a print would be on paper right? do u know where the original is?
Value of Your Art
Ted and I started drinking in Tucson and ended up a week later in Mexico. While drunk, he gave me six large watercolors. My ex got them in our divorce in 1984 and sold them for $2,000.00 each. Convert that to net present value, and you probably will be in the ball park as far as value.
2 Degrazia paintings
Did Degrazia ever do a piece called Navajo Bride? I have located two paintings that I find interesting.

DeGrazia Plates- cleaning
Hello all- I am looking for advice on cleaning my plates. They are "The Flower Girl" #9825/10,000 and "The Flower Boy" # 7284/10,000. They've been on a shelf in a closet for many years and have been passed on to me- I would LOVE to hang them but realize they need some cleaning.
By the way- those asking for value of their plates: mine are worth (with a little research) about $250. I have seen prices on the Childrens Series ranging from $55- $300.
The DeGrazia Treasure
Many people do not realize that Ted DeGrazia buried several paintings, using these paintings as a "treasure." Upon hearing that the IRS was going to tax his family for the paintings he had, Ted decided to give the IRS the middle finger.
Being a treasure hunter himself, Ted decided to make a treasure map that leads to these paintings.
This map can be found in the book titled "Ripples of lost echo's" by Bob Ward.
Expect these paintings and sketches to be available to the public in the very near future.

I have a sketch of a bucking horse and a cowboy next to it. It is signed Ted 1957 Where could I find our if it is the real thing. Underneath was an older picture,of a little boy kneeling at the side of his bed with his dog with paws on bed.
In the 60's Degrazia sold dolls does anyone have a picture of one?
How do you tell an original oil painting from a fake?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Fiesta of Children Plates
I have the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th plates in the fiesta of children series, but do not have the first one, don't know the name of it, or if there are more than 4 plates. Can anyone help?
verifications of artwork
To anyone interested-you can contact De Grazias Gallery in Tucson to ask about verification of artwork.The staff is exceptionally nice,and if you are ever in the area it is well worth a visit.
I have gone several times in the past few years and I never get tired of looking at his work-my creative batteries get charged-he is also buried on the grounds and you can pay your respects.
Ted DeGrazia necklaces
I have had two different Ted DeGrazia necklaces for about 25 years. Both have a large pendant with his usual Indians handpainted, and smaller decorated items and beads going up the necklaces on both sides, all mounted on leather strip. Unable to find similar on Internet. Would appreciate feedback and value information. Willing to Email digi photos.
Was fascinated by Carol Locust's love story with Degrazia's gentle love for her children, and wanting a
baby, "Mingo", with her. What was happening with Marion during this time. When Mingo was born in 1973, how did Marion handle this difficult situation, and did MarioN and Ted have any childred of their own? Who is "Hal", and what relationship to Ted.
I purchased a necklace with a large (3 in) pendant and several smaller angels on each side of the leather and beaded strings which has the signature of DeGrazia on the pendant. The Gallery of the Sun ,Tuscan is printed on a label on the back. The predoominant color is aqua. and the figure is a slendeer Madonna-like woman in side view. Is this a piece of DeGrazia's work?
I have noticed that we all want information about our Ted DeGrazia pieces however, I don't see any responses to anyones including mine, questions, I will continue to look for a web site or phone number that is more helpful and if I find it I will share it with other interested collectors
Ted Degrazia / signed oil painting purchased for a $1.00
I purchased a signed oil painting yesterday from the Salvation Army in Arizona, and I have been told it is the real deal by the president of our local Art Guild Club.
The name of the painting is Fiesta Flowers size is
11 1/2 x 9 1/4 I have compared it with a print I
found on line everything
matches. How do I verify
it is a original ?
De Grazia necklace
I recently bought a precious little necklace of a south-west Native American girl, holding up three God's Eyes. The necklace/pendant seems to be clay or porcelain, and the background is painted light peach. The figure is raised, and so are the God's Eyes. The colors in the girls clothing and face are bright, and have a slight sheen, so I think they may be done in acrylic or something like 'Ceramacoat'. In the lower right corner is De Grazia's name, and it looks identical to the signature in some of my older Arizona Highway magazines he illustrated. On the back are the letters PAM, the name of the subject? The piece is strung on a round suede strip and is small, only 2" tall and 1.5" wide. I wondered, could this be an original, and what does the PAM mean? Also, there is a little bit of greyish dirt(?) on the bottom edges. Can this be cleaned off safely? Thanks for any info, I'm VERY new to this collecting game.
Back in the 60's Arizona Highway had De Grazios for sale. Are they lithographs or just posters? They are not numbered.

I have a rather large painting, signed as DeGrazia. It was purchased about 30 years ago in Arizona and given to us as a gift. It is framed in very rough wood.
How would I know if this is an original? I believe it is called Navajo Mother.

Degrazia- Message to Michelle Schutta
Hello. I was in the same situation. I own a Ted Degrazia oil 24"x 30", scene is extremely rare and wonderful. At first I didn't know how to price it or what to do with it but have recently come into contact with an art gallery that has been very helpful with this. Email me, I will help you find its value. It sounds great!
Nothing-- if it was in 2001. He died in 1982
DeGrazia Squash Blossom
I received a DeGrazia squash blossom in November, 1969. The fabric it is painted on is one I do not recognize. It looks like ivory, but is extremely light. It is white-ish over which DeGrazia painted his wonderous child. Anyone know what this fabric might be?
Growing up in Arizona . . .
