Customer Question
I have am original painting...
I have am original painting that was given to me 35 years ago from architect Morris Lapidus titled peace and tranquility dated "66. Its painted on blue construction paper and the subject is a farm house with a red barn in a snow covered setting. I also have a sketch of women holding her face looking down that is number 9/125. I understand he burned all of his artwork back in the mid 80's. Got any idea what them my be worth.
