Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

Thank you, ***** ***** corrected the spelling the second time. In the first post, you put Jacques Kupferman, who is an Austrian painter of abstract landscapes.

In your reply, you spelled it Kupfermann, and he was an American Expressionist. That extra N is important!

That said, this painting does not at all resemble the work of Kupfermann. An analysis of the signature, and/or the provenance (where the painting came from), would be needed, since it looks so very different from the typical work of Jacques Kupfermann.

That said, Kupfermann works have not done well in resale lately, with auction sales maxing out at $1000. As this is an extremely atypical work, it's hard to say where it would fall in auction placement, but most likely in the $1000-$1500 range.

Please let me know if you have more questions or can upload a photo of the signature.
