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.
What is the size, not including the frame? Do not remove from the frame.
The style matches several paintings by Benedicte Brummer of Denmark and dating 1881-1974.
When assessing an artist's work, appraisers must look at completed 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.
My research indicates that your Brummer painting would have an estimated retail value of $400-500 assuming good condition and depending on sale geographic location.
As for retail value, I have seen art sell for 4 to 5 times auction values depending on the tastes of the art gallery owner as well as location of the gallery.
In general, a private seller to a dealer, via consignment or at auction can expect 30-60% of estimated retail value.
Insurance replacement values are usually about 10% more than retail values.
I hope I have helped you.

Where did you find the information that the Brummer's actually painted?
Joseph studied sculpture.
Joseph Brummer"During the autumn of 1908, he shared a studio space at Cité Falguière with avant-garde sculptor Joseph Csaky, who was also from Szeged and Budapest. Brummer studied sculpture under Jules-Felix Coutan, Auguste Rodin and in 1908 Henri Matisse. He also attended the Académie de la Grande Chaumière, and thus got to know contemporary artists."Source: Wikipedia
Please send any examples of the paintings by Joseph or Ernest Brummer.
Please note the subject matter in your painting includes a windmill and a water scene - typical of Denmark.
