Customer Question

I own a 24 x 48 painting from Everett Woodson,, which is larger than most.
What I also found interesting is this painting's size and the fact that Everett is spelled with only 1 "t" . Perhaps it is more valuable?
Much appreciated.

I am not really sure your painting is by Everett Woodson. The signature on yours has some difference from his known signature. It may be by another artist. See the following image of a genuine Woodson signature that I found on at least two of his originals. Let's assume your painting is an original by Everett Woodson. Everett Woodson (1933 - )Missouri - Known for "Rural scenes with Barns""Everett Woodson was born September 3, 1933 in Independence Missouri. He is known for his "barn" paintings. The central theme of his paintings are barns in different types of settings, seasons and locations. Collectors of Woodson's work often will seek particular settings or certain seasons over others. His very large oil paintings are especially prized.It is not surprising that Everett followed the same path as his ancestors, several of whom also achieved national recognition as professional artists. Woodson received his formal training at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kansas City. Mr. Woodson has earned several awards for his farmhouses and barns including first place at the Missouri State Fair, Mid-America Fine Arts League, and at the Truman Bi-Centennial.Mr. Woodson's genius is tied to reality and vividness of his subjects. "His barns are weathered and peaceful, his skies are threatening or somber, the snow is fresh or soiled" - J. Martin Fuller, KansasCity Artist Students Newsletter.Woodson's style is very distinctive and stands out wherever it is seen. He signs his paintings "Everett Woodson" and occasionally "E. Woodson".Source:Partially from an old typed description stapled to the back of one of Everett Woodson's paintings. The rest written by Scott Wilder, art collector and researcher specializing in Kansas artists." When assessing an artist's work, appraisers must look at sales of works by the same artist. Art gallery sales prices are private.We must then go to auction sales prices which are public. When using comparable work by the same artist, medium, subject matter and size are factors to be considered.Appraisers most often use price per square inch of previously sold comparable works by the same artist as a measure of value. Using this standard method of assessment, I was able to determine an auction value of $369. The lack of the second "t" actually lessens the value because it brings into question the painting's authenticity. If you wish to sell, these are my suggestions -The internet has your widest pool of buyers. To sell close to retail try the following -Try ads on sites such as like where you can set up your store for free and the selling fees are small - 20 cents to list an item plus 3.5% of the final price.Or list with no fees whatsoever: private seller to a dealer or at auction can expect 30-60% of retail value.I hope I have helped you.If I can help you with further questions about this answer, please let me know before you rate me.All my answers are quoted in USA dollars.I endeavor to give realistic, honest answers in a timely manner.Please take a little time to give me a POSITIVE RATING NOW SO THAT I AM CREDITED BY JA for my knowledge, time and effort.Please do not rate me down because of system difficulty.Please let me know if you have difficulty with the site's rating system.
