I have a painting of a nude woman mostly a profile

I have a painting...

I have a painting of a nude woman mostly a profile perspective, painted from just below the waist up to the head with her left hand resting on her head. This painting is about 19 inches tall and about 15 inches wide (frame not included) that appears to be oil on canvas and is signed by Rick Gonzalez. I inherited this painting from my mother and I believe she purchased it sometime in the 1960's but I have no idea how old it might be. I understand that there is/was a Filipino artist by the name of Rick Gonzalez but I cannot find out much more about his work or value of his art. If I send you a picture attached to an email or get you an image of this painting by some other means is it possible for you to give me more information about the artist and what the value of the painting may be? If not, can you direct me to a source that might be able to give me more information about Rick Gonzalez and this picture? Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you. I'm guessing I should send the picture to***@******.*** and it will get to you but please let me know. My email address is ******* @gmail.com if you want to contact me. Thanks for your help. *******  ******* 

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 the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

I think that is all the info I can provide at this time.

Hi,

This is your answer, please read entirely.
.
The Rick Gonzalez Painting, Nude, circa: 1960's, 19 x 15 Framed has an estimated value on the current market for an average of $400.00-550.00 if sold at an auction(a local auction ) it would sell for a little less,at around $200.00-250.00, if this were sold in a High End Shop in a larger city it would sell for $400.00 and up depending on the condition. If I were selling it I would list it for $550.00
.
Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is also Amazon Market Place, and of course Ebay. You can also sell on Charish, where you consign items. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! All sites can be sold from with pick up only option.
.
If you sell to a dealer, antique shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
.
Please ask any question you might have about your answer before rating this.
.
It was a pleasure working for you. I would be happy to help you with any items in the future.

Thanks for the quick response. Do you think this painting would sell for more if offered thru a art gallery, say one in San Francisco? We in northern Nevada so don't really have access to art dealers for auction houses etc but could send the painting someplace to be sold. It's just not our kind of art and has been sitting in a closet since about 1990 so we feel it's time to let someone else have it to enjoy.

Yes it might, you could contact one or two of them to feel them out, see what they think. They would know the market in their area. They will charge a commission, so be sure to inquire as to how much. You might also list if for sale on one of the sites, Ebay has a world wide shopping market. So does Amazon Market place.

I would check around with a few Galleries.
