Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.
Can you please provide a clear close-up of the signature?
Photo upload instructions are here:
Please note I do not handle appraisals by phone, so if you get a phone request it came automatically from the system, not from me. Please ignore.
From the photos, this looks like it may be a print with a textured varnish layer over it. Is the item on canvas, or on paper/board?
This appears to be a lithograph printed to board with a textured varnish layer. As such, the value would be quite low.
That is of course only from a photo--did you show it to the auction house in person, and did they offer any opinion or information?
Yes, this is a scene of Venice. It shows gondoliers in the canals, approaching St. Maria della Salute, a Roman Catholic church.
Since it seems to be a print, the value would be approximately $200.00 framed.
I see you have not yet rated/accepted my answer. How can I help you further?
