What does this mean?

Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be a painting by 21st century contemporary artist who might have been influenced by japanese art. The signature might read "Tammya" or "Ramnya" or similar. After checking possible variations the artist persists to be anonymous. There is some artistic value to it, and the artist will have received artistic training. It is surprising that the art dealer you bought it from has no information on the artist. Apparently no paintings by this artist surfaced on the secondary art market. I can therefore base the estimate only on similar decorative paintings by lesser known artists.

Hi Klaus,

What further information would you like? BTW, who is the actual artist as I cannot read?

Klaus Jun 13, 16:41 UTC

Hi Andrew, could you add photos of the labels on the back? This would help me to narrow the search. Thank you.

Just uploaded the label pictures. When I bought the piece I bought just the canvas and then a frame from the same art dealer. One sticker is signifying I would pick the item up. Other one is a barcode.

Hi Klaus,

Did you review the pictures of the stickers I uploaded yesterday?

Andrew strickman Jun 14, 20:19 UTC

Hi Klaus,

I bought it at a large art dealer in 2003 that was going out of business, so cannot contact them. Based on similar as mentioned, what would you estimate its worth?

Andrew strickman Jun 14, 20:20 UTC

Just saw the $$$ you mentioned.

I'll be sending another one for appraisal later today or tomorrow.
