Customer Question
I am trying to...

I am trying to research about a painting that I own. It has local history in Western Colorado where I am from. Its an Odalisque Saloon art circa 1918-1923 58 inch by 86 inches I have tried to research more about it but can not find anything

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?

It has a signature on it but I am not sure...a very similar painting is in a book and that signature is the last name Bishop believed to be a father and son team. It was restored a bit (not sure what exactly) in the 70s its very good condition, nothing is wrong with it
