Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.I will be pleased to help you.
Please send me a clear close-up of the signature.
You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the marks.
To send photos you may use the "attach" or "add" link or "paper clip" you see on your reply page.
I look forward to your reply.
Thank you for the information and clear photos
Please tell me if your painting is oils or watercolors.
I also need to know the size.
Please allow me time to research the data required by your question, calculate current values and write my answer.
I should be back within 40 minutes.
I thank you in advance for your patience.
Unfortunately, W. Jerome is not listed as an artist in any of the major databases. This means he/she has not been recognized nationally or internationally. It also means that his/her work has never been part of a major exhibition.
The art market is name driven. W Jerome does not have name recognition needed to bring high values.
The watercolor here has a retail art gallery value of $350-500 assuming good condition.
I know this must be disappointing. I wish I had better news.
A private seller to a dealer or at auction can expect 30-60% of retail value.
I hope I have helped you.
