Customer Question
I have an oil...

I have an oil painting by ***** ***** Wolpert'53. Where is a good place to get a value and to get it cleaned up? I live near DC.

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.

I obtained this painting from my Aunt upon her passing.

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

Nothing other than it is framed, and the canvas is in good condition only probably dirty.
