I have a Balink oil on canvas painting that I would like to…

I have a Henry...

I have a Henry Balink oil on canvas painting that I would like to get a value on. It has some cracking of paint, measures about 20x20" not including the frame.

Expert's Assistant: 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.

Balink is a New Mexico artist & paints a lot of native american indians, died in 1963. This painting is of an Indian flute player. I bought it at an auction.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Its signed, framed in carved wood in gold.

Ok thank you

Hello,

Thank you for your patience. Your original framed oil portrait painting by Henry Balink (1882 - 1963) should carry a conservative estimate of $6000 - $8000 on today's market.
