What is my painting worth

Customer Question

What is my painting worth

Hello,

There is only one photo of a signature that reads Renoir 80. I would also like to see the whole painting and any labels on the back. You can add more by using the ADD FILES button in the lower right of your screen.

I'll check the back. But last I remember it was sealed. I attached a second photo

Thank you, ***** ***** the image now. This is a faded print (not a painting) of a famous painting by the artist Pierre Auguste Renoir entitled Portrait of Mademoiselle Irene Cahen d'Anvers. Renoir was a French impressionist painter and the original painting was done in 1880 measuring 2'2" x 1'9", the real painting now owned by Foundation EG Buhrle, a museum in Switzerland.

I have attached an image of the original so that you can see how much your print has faded to blue tones. Your framed print also has water damage. This piece has a value of $20.00 in it's current condition and most of that value is the frame. I wish that were better news!
