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 know that I cannot accept any requests for "live conversations" such as phone calls. I must research up-to-date data to give the most accurate answer.

Sometimes my customers click the wrong button when they really do not want a "live conversation." Please be careful what choices you click on.

Please tell me the size of the pastel not including the mat and frame.

Kind regards,

Doris

Expert:  Doris - dfm925 replied 11 months ago.

Thank you for the information. I am so glad you did not take it out of the frame.

Please allow me time to research the data required by your question, calculate current values and write my answer.

I thank you in advance for your patience.

Kind regards,

Doris

John B Stockwell was born in 1958. He still an active artist, living in Massachusetts.

His larger pastels this size (27x21") average $2131 at auction.

This means your matted and framed pastel, "La Route Des Crete," has an estimated retail art gallery price of $6300 assuming good condition.

A 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.

Please do not rate me down because of system difficulty, site charges or current appraisal values - all three are beyond my control.
