Hi my name is***** have checked on the current art market value for the work of Raymond Besse (1899-1969). The prime market for his work is still France. Current auction histories show that his paintings have sold at auction for $150.00 to $300.00. In the past say 2009 and 2006 the values were a little higher the average was closer to $500.00.

The art market has become rather unpredictable much like the stock market.
