Customer Question
I have two framed paintings...
I have two framed paintings by Mario Carrero. Both appear to be on watercolor paper, so I don't think they are prints. One is of a plaza by the water with buildings, trees and boats. Many people strolling around and cars and a horse-drawn carriage. The other has a cathedral as it's main focus with other European buildings on the left side and again, with many people and cars.

My uncle who was a lifetime military man, and who was stationed all over the world, gave them to my mother many years ago. Could these be original works?

So sorry, it's Mario Carraro, not Carrero!

Thank you.

Antique Expert: Judith-on-Antiques, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 5 years ago
Thank you!

Mario Carraro (1896 - 1978) was an Italian artist, and is best known for his watercolors, drawings and oil paintings.

His watercolors are currently selling at auction in the range of $225 - $575.

I already knew the biographical info on Mario Carraro. Since he has no auction history in the U.S., I'm wondering how you came up with the estimate of $225-$575 for his work?

I subscribe to an international art database, one that tracks auctions all over the world.
