Good morning,

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?

Good morning
The item is on board.
Expert:  AppraiserJM replied 10 months ago.

Thanks.

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?

Sincerely,

Jennifer

No I didn't show any auction in person. I also want to know. Is this art Venice canal or where and what are the people those boats carrying to a church or a parliament place. Where is this place on the picture then the value thanks-Mohamed
Expert:  AppraiserJM replied 10 months ago.

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.

Sincerely,

Jennifer
