27.5x17.5 oil on canvas
Family piece for the at least the preceding 75 years
Thank you for your request. The presented object is a painting made in oil paint on canvas with the measurements of 17.5 x 27.5 inches. It depicts a sleight pulled by five horses which are chased by two wolves. Two coachmen in Russian costumes try to escape or fight back with a rifle. This motif is common especially in the Russian and Middle-European art around 1900. The painting is signed "A. Guard". Sadly no further information of the biography is mentioned for this artist in auction records or similar databases.
This piece is in damaged condition and the surface of the painting is soiled.
An estimation would be between 80 to 150 USD.
This estimation is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
With best regards,
