Good day my name is Tim
I am a Certified IRS Qualified Fine Art Appraiser. It will be a pleasure to put my expertise, libraries, resources, and experience in the field to work for you.
I need to see images of the painting, I will look at the live Auctioneer listing for you.
Thank you for the pictures. Here is what I have determined about your artist:
Country: Hong Kong
His work has come to auction several times. The highest hammer price achieved was $850.00.
There are several paintings by the artist currently available in Galleries the asking prices range from $1,100.00 to $2,300.00.
Unfortunately Contemporary Impressionist painting is a low ebb in the current art market.
Yes, the $8438.00 was an unrealistic value based on the auction records and current gallery prices.
