Hello there, I have a painting that I inherited from a relative I noticed on the bottom left signed Wannon which after further research it says a painter by the name of Louis Buvelot painted several landscapes of this sort from the 1800's. Please let me know anything including value of this particular piece...thanks,Paula

This is a painting by an artist that signed W. Annon. This is a 20th century painting, the technique showing that it was created no earlier than the 1960's. W. Annon was not a listed artist and this styling and technique is considered of low quality in terms of art (not to insult your family member). It was also common for paintings that were mass produced in factories by slave labor and imported from Asia to have a 'faux' signature of a non-existent person. This particular painting has a current value of no more than $75.00.
