The most recent auction sales records show that etchings by Nathaniel P. Steinberg have sold for $125.00 to $180.00 this is his secondary market. In gallery the estimated value would be $250.00 to $360.00.
Unfortunately yes. Prints are at the low end of the art market. They account for less then 8% of annual earnings in the art market. Another factor is that his art is out of fashion. Post WWII contemporary art is the hot ticket. Globs and squiggles are in, sentiment and artistry is out I am sad to say.
