Customer Question
I have a Russell...

I have a Russell Benda signed painting. Not a water color and would like to know its value.

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 Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

It is an abstract of two nudes. I purchased from a secondhand store in Michigan. It appears to be an original and is titled “Gothic I”

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Appraiser should know?

Might be oil, i have not removed the framing to inspect.
