Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser and I'd be happy to help.

These prints were one of the first forms of mass-production art. They were extremely popular as they made art affordable to the masses, and many copies of many works were printed. Because of that, prices have remained relatively low over the decades and centuries.

This particular print would be valued at approximately $150.00 in very good condition.

Sincerely,

Jennifer
