I had taken this photo of my son and dog in time out. It ended up going viral, countries all around the world shared it and have done TONS of stories on them!! Both online and TV. It has been called 'Modern day Norman Rockwell' I had it printed on an 11x14 canvas from canvas people.com. As of now it is my first print, so one of a kind. People have asked for permission to paint it but as of now I have NOT given any permission. Looking to get it appraised.
I took photo and printed it on 11x14 canvas from canvaspeople.com
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The presented object appears to be a giclee print on canvas with the measurements of 14 x 11 inches. The print depicts the known motif by Jillian Smith of a boy "timed out" accompanied by the family dog. Indeed this photo includes everything that a good and catching photography should include. Regarding an appraisal, I have to point out that this piece was not made by a known artist who is offered and sold in galleries or auction houses. So there are no reference pieces for example in auctions which could be used as a comparable for an estimation. Usually, such pieces like yours are offered and sold with the factor of two or three of the production costs. So I could imagine this piece could be sold around 100 to 200 USD for example in an online auction. Nevertheless, the pricing of such a piece especially when you are the owner of the image rights is more or less open.
Works by this artist were recently not offered and sold on the international auction market.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 100 to 200 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.
With kind regards,
