Not sure how this...

Not sure how this works :) ... I've won an online auction and i've learned when things are too good to be true, they normally are... I've one https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/55776528_victor-brauner-1903-1966-romanian-pencil-on-board For much less then it's estimated value.

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 important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Not sure there is anything else, just curious if the estimated value is accurate

Hello,

The issue here is that the work itself is not similar to the style of the listed artist Victor Brauner and as well, it is not his signature style. Usually his works are signed with a backwards or letter N in the last name.
