Customer Question
I have had a...

I have had a painting for sometime and hope someone can help me find the value of it. Purchased at a second hand store, the frame fell off and now it is just on stretched canvas. From my research, I believe it is a piece from "Canaletto" and something away from the cityscapes he is known for. I believe it was painted when he worked in the theater before he started following his father. Do you know who can help me?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

The artwork is of a life size Stradivarius violin, and a sheet of music that seem to come off the paper in 3D. The shading is what he was known for in his buildings and he played a violin as a form of entertainment. The painting is signed.
