I have a pair (and I do believe it is a pair) of Dolona

Customer Question

Hi - I have a pair (and I do believe it is a pair) of Dolona Roberts original acrylic paintings, each (framed) is approximately 38 x 42". My late husband purchased them from the Grycner Gallery in 1997, but that is all the information I could find on them. Each painting shows two figures in blankets, one showing the backs and the other, which I understand is very unusual, shows the front of the same figures. I have no idea of the value. I'm considering selling them, but don't know where to start.
JA: The Expert will know what to do. Is there anything else the Expert should be aware of?
Customer: They are in perfect shape and the artist's signature is very clear. I can upload pictures

Hello,

My name isCustomerand I would love to help. Please add images at your convenience by using the +Add File feature
next to the SEND button.

I will need to see to see pictures of the painting,
signature and any labels on the back of the completed framing. Give me time to do some research after you add pictures.
No need to sit by the computer, you will get an email when I do respond.

Hi - There are no labels or signatures on the back of the framing. We may have had the acrylics shipped and the framing done locally.

I found the Gallery currently working with the artist, Dolona Roberts. Just needed to dig through her website. I called and spoke to the owner, Jesse. He valued them between $1500 and $2000 each, unframed.
