Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The presented object appears to be a painting made in oil paint on canvas with the measurements of
14 x 20 inches. The painting depicts a landscape showing Stratford Church and Lock and is attributed on the reverse side to the artist Frank Aug. Brandish HOLTE (act.c.1875-1900). Sadly no further information regarding the biography of this artist is mentioned in reference books or similar databases. He mainly depicted landscapes and there are rarely artworks of this artist offered on the auction market.
This piece is in good condition and there are no serious damages visible.
An estimation would be between 600 to 1200 USD.
This estimation is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
With kind regards,
