Hi. This is not an antique question but I think the artist may be very old
I purchased a watercolor and pencil painting, original and was not properly framed using cardboard for backing which ruined the matting. If I sell this what should I expect for the artwork. Illman is all I know for name. Avid collector estate sale. 8" x 10"

Hello,

Thank you for your patience.

This is a plein-air watercolor of a landscape from 1980 signed Illman.

There is only one listed artist with the last name Illman who would fit the timeline of being actively painting in 1980 and that is

Philip Illman (1898 - 1992). However, the signature on yours is not a match to Philip Illman's known signed works.

This 8" x 10" watercolor was done by an unlisted hobbyist artist.

High value is $20 - $30.

What about Marjorie. She is. 90 years old But cannot get her signature. Can you? Just checking

Or Marjorie

I mean margorie

Hi,

This could potentially be a work by Marjorie Illman; however she is considered a regional artist and not a listed artist.

The estimate does remain the same.
