If you're a collector with a love of rare Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) artworks, then here's a quick look at what's available to you on the auction markets.

This rare and autographed example of Picasso's pioneering excursions into Expressionism is estimated at $18,000-24,000.

Meanwhile, if you're an art collector on a lower budget, then the good news is you don't need $24,000 to buy an authentic Picasso collectible. Nor do you have to compete with other bidders online.

Pieces we've handled here at Paul Fraser Collectibles include this autographed postcard.

The market for Picasso autographs is strong. Indeed, Picasso signed photographs have gone up by 182.1% over the last 11 years (a rise in average valued from £1,400 to £3,950).
