Hello,

In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to know the size and see images of the front, back (do not remove from frame) and a clear, in-focus close-up of the signature.

If you had already attached images to your initial posting, they are not showing for me here on my end.

Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.

I Just want to know an estimate of the value and am I correct in the fact that it is an original?
Antique Expert: Nora, Expert in Fine and Decorative Arts: Renaissance through Contemporary replied 2 years ago

Hi,

Yes, you do indeed have an original painting by Italian artist Nino Giuffrida (born 1924). His works are actively offered at auction. The style of yours, mid-century modern children in sweet idyllic settings is one of a few different thematic styles that he executed.

On today's market, the style that you have with children tend to carry high average estimates of $200 - $400 at auction, though they realistically actually sell at auction for an average of $100. The suggested insurance or replacement value of your painting is $600. I do recommend holding on to this to see if the market value will grow sometime.
