I have a oil...

I have a oil painting signed Bernard seems to be turn of the century Paris street scene just curious if it’s worth anything

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

The size is 24 by 48 and the figures are kind of stick like

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

It’s signed on the right hand side

Hi,

Thank you for the images.

You have a vintage original painting that dates to the 3rd quarter of the 20th century, 1950’s - 1970’s.

It is by what is known as an unlisted artist, meaning one that does not sell at auction for fine art collector and investor purposes, but a painting that is more intended for decorative framed original wall art for the home, hotel or lobby setting. Oftentimes, the artist’s name that is on the painting is fictitious and they painted in factory settings in Mexico and China. They were sold in decorator shops, furniture show room stores and department store furniture sections.

This particular size of 24" x 48" is known as a sofa painting, for hanging over the couch.

Your vintage framed oil painting would sell for $100 - $300 on today’s market. They do get offered for higher on online auction sites, but the realistic sales prices are lower than asking

price.
