Resolved Question:

We own an original signed Jerome Bushyhead acrylic and would like to have an appraisal. Is Mr. Bushyhead known in the Native American art world and is his work sought after?  Also, we would like to have the names of galleries/individuals who would be interested in his work.

Hi! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I can assist you. Can you please provide images and measurements? Jerome Bushyhead (1929-2000) was a well known Native American artist and produced many works. The images will allow me to see more of the theme of what you have and thus tighten down the estimated range. I look forward to assisting you.

Thank you for your response and we look forward to providing you with more information. We are very excited however, we are currently traveling and will forward to you as soon as we return home which will be early next week.

Not a problem...just repost when you can and I will be pleased to assist you. If the question times out, just put my name, Will Gorges, in the subject line. Have a safe trip!
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Mr. Gorges, I am having a great deal of difficulty communicating with you. Can you please email me directly with any information regarding our Jerome Bushyhead painting. XXXXX@XXXXXX.XXX Did you get the second email I sent with your requested information?
Expert:  Will replied 3 years ago.

So sorry...we are not allowed direct contact with clients. Any email must go to experts@justanswer.com with a request for forwarding to my attention...I can tell you that this month the arts database was updated and Bushyhead is rated on the secondary market from $300 to $500 for an average work--gallery prices will normally be posted higher, but the numbers are not really valid since they are not based on concluded sales. At present, there are no listed wants filed for the artist in current databases. The last piece at auction was in April, 2011, but resulted in no sale...this is the gallery that offered it (below). Not really much more I can tell you, honestly, but I would like to see the work if possible. Best, Will

 

PS Please bear in mind that I am NOT an employee of JustAnswer--they provide a link to their clients (you) with experts (like me) and I have no input on their policies, procedures or billing--if I was allowed, I would gladly let you email me directly with the image but that is strictly forbidden. Hope you understand.
