Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.
What is the medium - oil, watercolor, etc ?
What are the dimensions of your painting not including the frame?
Kind regards,
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hi Doris,
It looks like oil but I am not knowledgeable about painting. The dimensions are 35" x 31"
Thank you,
Expert:  Doris replied 2 years ago.
That you for that information.
I will now research your artist and determine a value range.
Kind regards,
Expert:  Doris replied 2 years ago.
Jules Maidoff is credited with founding the Studio Arts Center International.
When assessing an artist's painting, appraisers must look at sales of works by the same artist. Art gallery sales prices are private.
We must then go to auction sales prices which are public. When using comparable work by the same artist, medium, subject matter and size are factors to be considered.
I was only able to locate two auction sales records for oils by Jules Maidoff.
36 x 40" - Sloans & Kenyon - 10.31.04 - Sold $400 - slightly larger than yours
48 x 60" - Clarke - 11.16.09 - est. $1000-1500 - Unsold - larger than yours
Adjusting for size, your 35 x 31" oil by Jules Maidoff has an estimated auction value range of $400-700 assuming only small tear.
A retail art gallery would double or triple the auction sales price.
A private seller to a dealer can expect 40-60% of retail value.
I hope I have helped you.
