Expert:  Doris replied 1 year ago.

Do you remember where you found her?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, but I had to do different combos with her name and also looked for paintings, oils on wood, simular to hers before i found her
Expert:  Doris replied 1 year ago.

Do you remember what name the "R" was.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i looked on the back, seems like a european artist ?
Expert:  Doris replied 1 year ago.

Interesting. I still cannot find her/him.

I can value the painting as being by an unlisted artist if you wish. Note - an unlisted artist is one that has not been recognized nationally or internationally nor have ever been part of a major exhibition.

Otherwise, I will need to opt-out - release your question so that other professionals can research the artist.

Let me know.

Kind regards,

Doris

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
opt out, I showed it to an appraisor maybe twenty years ago, he knew who she was, i cant find him or R mary, How are you on early 1912 ish lithographs from new york ?
Expert:  Doris replied 1 year ago.

I can do your lithograph if I know the artist.

You will need to ask about that in an additional question.

Once I opt-out here, I will not be able to respond to this question.

Kind regards,

Doris

Hello,

Can you please provide an image of the backside of this painting (do NOT remove from frame) and a clear, in-focus close-up image of the surface of a flower so I can see the texture.

Hi,

I am wondering if you are still interested in having your item assessed?

Please let me know and do you have requested images available?

I look forward to reading back from you.

Sincerely,
