Good morning, Michael,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. There have been a few paintings signed "di Bello" that have come up for auction in recent years but I have not been able to identify the artist more specifically. Based on the photographs and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

Italian School, 20th Century
Still Life (Pears and grapes with an urn)
oil on canvas
signed lower left
$150-250

Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you for using Mearto.

Madelia,
I think it is possibly Bruno Di Bello. These paintings were picked up by my grand parents in the sixties while touring Europe.

Hi Michael,
I checked the link and don't think it's by Bruno Di Bello. His body of work is very different from this and the other still life painting by DiBello that you've submitted to Mearto for appraisal.

In doing my initial research, I found several works by a "G. di Bello" in a virtually identical style being sold by an online auction house. They get very low prices and I think your paintings have artistic merit enough to warrant the values I placed on them, but to date, no works have currently sold at auction within the range I quoted. Here is a link you can check out.
