Robert Watson (1923 - 2004)

is a listed artist from Arizona and California

known for surreal landscapes and as an illustrator.

A similar piece by the artist recently (4/17) sold for $300 (which would represent wholesale)

at auction. (see photo)

His work sells retail in the range of $500 to $700.

To sell, try ads on these sites; http://www.masterpieceonline.com, artbrokerage.com, askart.com, artnet.com, artvalue.com, or artprice.com. Some other sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com, Ebay and letgo.com (local).
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
Please do click the stars now for this one, it is very important for me to get good feedback for answering.
