Customer Question

I have two original paintings by J. Schrup - I believe they are titled "The Crucifixion" and "The Burial". How can I go about determining the value of each?
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.
Customer: One of the paintings is signed "J Schrupp 61" The other is signed "Shrupp 61"
JA: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: They are both framed, oil paintings on canvas. I am the original owner. I believe they were purchased 15 years ago or longer.

signatures and any labels on the back of the completed framing.

I cannot currently view them from the back. They are large and I will need help taking them down and putting them back. What can be known from the paintings alone?
Expert:  Rarewares replied 1 year ago.

John Edmund Schrup (born 1937) was a Texas and Wisconsin artist

that was also an art teacher for a while. These paintings from 1961

have a value of $400 to $600 each.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are,,, Ebay and

or list ads on these sites;,,,, or

You can also go to or and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
