Customer Question
Found an original oil...

Found an original oil painting by Floyd G. Van Gordon of the Lincoln Memorial dated 1924. Was in my recently found in my recently deceased fathers closet. Is it 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.

Thats all I know about it. I think he as an African American artist.

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

Not that I know of.

Hello,
My name isCustomerand I would love to help. Please add images at your convenience by using the +Add File feature next to the SEND button.

I will need to see to see pictures of the painting,
signature and any labels on the back of the completed framing. The back of a painting tells us just as much as the front sometimes.

Give me time to do some research after you add pictures.
No need to sit by the computer, you will get an email when I do respond.
