Customer Question

any art appraisers? David Neal "Chapel at Westminster" and Randaninni "The Cardinal Giving His Orders" Both were originally owned by the Cummings Estate and then the Gould Estate when my grandfather purchased them at auction in 1939, I believe. In their original gold gilded frames. Neal's is an oil and Randaninni's is water colors. Once in the Encyclopedia Britanica, my father told me, I believe it was Neal's. Any idea the values?

Hello Doris, nice to meet you. Thank-you for answering. I have pictures, but not in this new pc. I do not have my printer,fax,scanner with me. I do have a picture I can take with my phone and mail it to myself to get it in here. My father gave me the approx. measurements before he passed. I only have the Neal painting picture since that is the one I was to inherit. Now my father wanted me to have both, but it will be a battle with the brother that thought he was to inherit it. He didn't get the new will finished before he passed early, even at 92 1/2 yrs.. Give me some time please to try and at least get the Neal painting in the pc. I am just thinking it should work, never tried it.
