What does this mean?

Dear Robani -

To assign an estimate of value for this piece I looked specifically at floral paintings by Affandi which were of the same relative size. These are not as common in the secondary market as his landscape and portrait scenes and are even less common than the artist's painting of sunflowers which are seen on average of once a year.

As always, let me know if you have any followup questions to this evaluation and have a wonderful day.

Sincerely,

Erin-Marie
