Hello,

My name isCustomerand I would love to help.

This still life oil on canvas by Austrian artist Karl Sascher

has a current value of $200 to $250 retail. I have added

a photo of one that recently sold in this range.

To sell the piece, you could try ads on sites like these;

I have a typed paragraph on the back of the painting about the artist, who he studied under and 2 galleries listed where his art could be viewed, The paragraph was typed around in 50"s.When I looked up this artist online , I was led to pro's only. I could only go so far. So I need help on how to value this painting.
Expert:  rarewares replied 4 months ago.

I did give you the value there, this piece is valued at $200 to $250

based on recent sales of his work. I belong to three paid databases for sold art

and this is the average range of similar pieces that have sold.

I do not see a picture from this artist , I clicked on the picture and it was mine.
In my search , I hit a wall , because his name landed with Pro's only. a painting around 250,000-450,000 was listed..
where is your reference please. I was not asking you where I could sell this. I would like the value, and I don't see a picture or any reference, only a list of sites to sell it. I am requesting a phone call.
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Is the phone call not included with why'd I just paid to appraise this painting?
Expert:  rarewares replied 4 months ago.

Look again at the photo I sent ( I will add again) .

That is another, separate painting by this artist. Yours has a peach

in front of the jug, the one I sent has a wine glass on the left.

This painting sold for $225 and is similar to yours. Since the sites

I use a paid monthly sites, they do not allow copying of the information,

I can only retrieve photos. This painting is not worth 250,000 to 450,000.

Please do look at the photo AFTER this paragraph to see the painting.

Click the stars for me, thanks!

Above are three more examples of Sascher's paintings selling at auction.

The arcadja site has NO work of his that has sold for 250,000 to 450,000.

The piece you are referring to sold for $250.00.
