Hello,

In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to know the size and see images of the front, back (do not remove from frame) and a clear, in-focus close-up of the signature.

Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.

Hi,

I received your images and thank you for your patience.

Your have an antique color lithograph print reproduction of a famous painting by French Realist artist, Jean-Francois Millet called "The Gleaners" that was completed in 1857. These are French peasant women who are tanned from being outdoor laborers in the summer.

The original painting is in the D'Orsay Museum in Paris, France. Here is a link for you to the original:

Here is a link for you to a history about this painting:

Your print was distributed by the Chicago Tribune. These were given as a premium gift insert to subscribers. On today's market, these color prints sell for $40 - $100 on average, yours being framed would be on the higher end of the estimate.
