What does this mean?

Good morning, Frederick Lyle Von Thrauthemburg,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
I'm a bit confused - there are a total of 5 works in a series titled "Forgivemess"? Are you the artist/what is your connection to the artist?
How large are these and can you please provide the link to the auction at Hanna's Hope?

I saw this before I saw the inquiry for " The Wedding".
Retail prices are typically considered quite a bit higher than the fair-market (or auction) values Mearto provides. If the works sold at Hanna's Hope were comparable in size, medium and subject to these, and if two works sold for $6,000 at auction ($3,000 each?) I would assign a fair-market value of $2,000-3,000 for each of these works.

This painting along with the entire series are Oil on Canvas, 30x40 each. Each painting sold for $6,0000.00 each. Other paintings from this series that have already sold are: "The Prayer" a paintings of a Nun, two men embracing titled "the Embrace", "Deep Blue" a whale painting and the execution of Queen Mary titled "The Execution". The painting titled "The Embrace" sold to WKNO Gallery 91 (private sale) while the remaining sold during our 2019 Exhibit with the group "4Sights" exhibited at Gallery 91, Memphis, TN. I am including this information as part of a history for this painting and will include it again when I submit each painting. Each painting sold for $2,000.00 to $6,000.00 I will provide the actual sells price for each painting with each individual appraisal request.

The values Mearto provides are fair-market, and for auction. Retail sales prices from galleries are typically considered only when auction sales are not available, and are usually at least 2-3 times higher than auction / fair-market values.

so that I am sure I understand you, are you saying these paintings would have a fair market value of $10,000 - $12,000.00 or would it be best listed for sale for $8,000.00

Delia Mar 05, 21:37 UTC

No. I am saying that the gallery price are higher.
If something sold in a gallery for $6,000, I would say an auction estimate would be $2,000-3,000.

hank you for the clarification - I have perhaps 300 oil paintings I will be sending for appraisal, I will send as much information, historical reference as possible for each.
