I would like to know if it is an authentic Margeret Keane Oil painting, if so, how much is it worth?
Expert:  Wayne replied 1 year ago.

Hi,

Thank you for your question. The answer is yes and no. Yes it is a Margaret Keane print but it is not an original oil painting. These are selling for $40-60 at auction.

Thank you,

Wayne

I'm uploading more photos, if you can't see it in the photos there is a small gold black that says Walter Keane Bedtime (ignore the gray tape it was used to protect the frame, it didn't come like that.)

Hi,

Walter Keane put his name on these but they were actually done by his wife Margaret. The value is the same. Here is some history https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walter_Keane

Thanks,

Wayne
