What does this mean?

Dear Kirk,

Thank you for your second inquiry.

The signature in red doesn't seem to match the ones we have for this particular artist, I am afraid. Can I ask you the following? Where did you get the information that this work might be by Edward Hopper?

Dear Karine;
I got the information that this work is an Edward Hopper based on the signature and some amateur internet research of Edward's paintings sold at auction, like in the link below. Thank You!

Dear Kirk,

To my knowledge, Edward Hopper is exclusively known for depicting early small-town or rural American landscapes. As mentioned earlier this week, I am sorry to say that the signature you have doesn't match the ones we have, so the estimate provided in red above is based on recent auction estimates and results of similar watercolor landscapes from the first part of the 20th century.

The current condition (based on photographs provided) has been taken into consideration when determining the estimate.

If you think that your work is by Edward Hopper, I advise you to show it to a local expert. Feel free to use our directory that you can find here: https://mearto.com/appraisers

I hope this is of help to you,

Best wishes,

Karine
