***** ***** was a 20thC British artist known for painting still life daisies.
When assessing an artist's work, appraisers must look at completed sales of works by the same artist. 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 widely accepted method of assessment, I was able to determine an estimated retail value of $425-525 for your oil still life by ***** ***** assuming good condition and depending on sale geographic location.
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.
If you wish to sell, these are my suggestions -
The internet has your widest pool of buyers. To sell close to estimated retail try the following -
Try ads on sites such as
Some like Etsy.com 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:
I hope I have helped you.
