Hello,

My name isCustomerand I would love to help. The next step would be for me to see pictures of the painting,
signature and any labels on the back of the completed framing.

Evern,

This is a print (not an original) of a 1940-50 created painting titled Rehearsal by Illinois artist and illustrator

Fred***** *****ball Mizen (1888-1964). This is a known reproduced image, your piece likely printed/sold

in the 1960's based on the framing style and when his work was most popular.

Below is an example of some of his other known work sold as reproductions, even today.

The piece you have is valued at $60 retail.
Some sites that I recommend for selling are Varagesale.com, Ioffer.com, OfferUp.com, Ebay and letgo.com.
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

To finish, I will need you to click the five stars at the top of your screen and hit submit, thanks!
