Customer Question

I am interested in the market value of a painting that my cousin has. It is a large painting signed by Don Cincone which is framed with a 2 inch frame. The visible portion of the painting is about 29 3/16 x 39 5/16 inches. It is of flowers in a vase. The flowers look like a mixture of white chrysanthemums and orange flowers which remind me of 'Iceland poppies'.

I tried sending the pictures earlier, but since I had no reply, I don't know if anything went through. Been having lots go on here. Including a bad 9 day course of the flu... Which is taking weeks to recover from. I don't recommend it. Anyway, I hope the pictures go through. The ones with the flash, unfortunately have a lot of reflection but show the colors quite well. The ones without flash mainly show the actual work. And, the color with his signature (right lower corner) is fairly accurate. The brush strokes on the flowers have a lot of 'depth' from his technique, especially on the chrysanthemums, and they appear to 'lift off' the canvass, or 'appear' 3D.If you would like close ups of parts, let me know. And maybe we can take it outside for a more accurate photo showing the colors... If it stops raining, and the sun comes out. We're in California getting much needed rain. But, of course it wouldn't be good for the painting. But maybe flash close ups would help you? Or we can try to get more light on it from other sources inside. Sorry this is so lengthy. Thank you!

Hi,

Thank you for the images. Hope you are feeling better, I was downed by a bout of the cold/flu *and* a concussion. Highly *not* recommended.

The 'depth' you see on the surface of the painting is referred to as 'impasto' which means the paint is built-up on the surface

Your vintage original floral still life painting by Don Cincone (b.1936) could carry an auction estimate of $400 - $800 on today's market.
