Limited edition of a print of Tintin sat in a bar, smoking and drinking whisky, by Esteve Fort in 1983. A beautiful picture, about which I know nothing - anyone help me please? Thank you.

Does this poster/print have any value to a collector?

25 years ago before I moved to the US, I bought a drawing of Tintin, Hadock and Milou (snowy) all sad and drunk at a bar with the newspaper reading that Hergé had died. I think it was from a spanish artist as an homage to Hergé.
The poster was large and I guess it was a reproduction of an original color pencil drawing.

I lost the poster during one of the many moves and have never been able to find it online. If someone has a link to it, I'd be happy to just see it again online.

Thanks

Hello! I've trying to track down a print of this painting from the 1000x that were made in 1983. I've seen many different kind of prints but I never knew what the original prints look like. The logos and marks at the bottom of the print seem to be in different places so I guess there are "re-print-prints" out there. I don't want to pay for a "fake". Any help? Thanks!

Aren't the 1000 copy prints "official"? I'm sorry if I'm discussing things that are not allowed. I have 0 knowledge about art or copyright what and whatnots.

Moderator Note: This is definitely a grey area; it seems that the original print was sanctioned, but no further copies approved, so the originals probably are "safe". However, they are scarce, and unofficial copies abound, so it's hard to separate them, and we really can't get involved in trying to make distinctions, so anyone who has information, please be absolutely certain that you are dealing with an original.

If you are really determined, you might be able to find an original print on eBay, but you may have to resort to trying one of the big sales that auction houses sometimes hold.
