My name isCustomerand I would love to help. The next step would be for me to see pictures of the painting,
signature and any labels on the back of the completed framing.
Use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures one at a time.

This is an original oil painting by Karoly Gyula "Charles" Gurdon (1927-2003)

a (Hungarian immigrant) Kentucky artist who was an industrial engineer as a profession

but was also a hobby painter on the weekends. This painting

of a sailing ship painted in 1961 has a current value of $200 to $250 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are,,, Ebay and

or list ads on these sites;,,,, or

You can also go to or and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

To finish, I will need you to click the five stars at the top of your screen and hit the submit button, thanks!
