Customer Question
I found an old watercolour...
I found an old watercolour dated 1829 underneath a victorian painting. It relates to the slave trade (which might explain why it was covered up) and I wonder if it might be worth something.. I can send you a picture

Hello

Can you tell me what the artist name is? The name on the right of the page on the bottom?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
A L BROCKMANN. He has a couple of similar subject paintings in the Tropical Museum in Amsterdam, although they are later.
Antique Expert: Glenda B., Antiques Appraiser replied 2 years ago

Hello

You think this is a water color not a print? The edges are very straight, most water colors bleed out of the line.

In time I would like both pictures appraised. Sadly the angel painting is not signed. I believe it is done in pastels. That was on top of the water colour by Brockman..

Hello

Ok, thank you, ***** ***** see if I can find any information on sales for A L Brockman. I will let you know as soon as I do.
