I have seen these paintings from Rugerri 8x10 going for that amount but not a 4ft high by 3ft wide which is substantially larger and you say 400 to 600 the 8 x 10 was 300 to 400 I do not accept this appraisal kindly refund my money

Hello,

The prices you are coming across are asking prices and not actual sale prices, which can be vastly different. Ruggeri signed paintings were produced for commercial decorator purposes. They are not works collected for investment purposes.
