I have a painting by Tam Ambrose painted in 1990 it doesn't

Customer Question

I have a painting by Tam Ambrose painted in 1990 it doesn't have a frame it's still on the wooden frame it was painted on it is signed by him & has a dedication to the person it painted for. It's a painting of a females behind with rolled up shorts on which is supposedly his wife's torso, I spoke to her quite a few years ago about it being in my possession but sadly she has passed away & so I think has Tambrose. Was wondering if I could find out how much it would be worth....I can send a photo if required

The colourful career of impressionist artist Tam Ambrose began in 1950. Tam began formal training at the age of 12 with noted Western Australian water colourist Leach Barker in his home town of Albany. One of his first collectors, Lady Gardiner, then wife of the Governor was impressed with a painting he had done of an old coat and paid him 5 pounds for the piece and so began his career in the art world.

Regarding the value of your item, I have just perform a market research of similar sold items as yours. I performed the research based upon the most recent finished auctions and private sells, so the value given is the real market value of your item. This is the only way to know the exact value of your unit.

The value will be in the range of 1,500AU$-2,500AU$.
