This is a Frank Faulkner piece given to me about 20 years ago. The piece is 10.5 x 7.5 inches and is framed. The back says UNTITLED, Acrylic on Masonite. It is in excellent condition. It was framed by the House of Heydenryk. It was sold by a gallery in New Bern, NC called GALLERY, LTD. That gallery is no longer open.
Outlined in original question
Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be a paiting by Frank Faulkner (1946), most likely dating to the early 1990s. Paintings by Faulkner have been offered and sold at auction repeatedly in the past years. Most paintings sold were of very large size, the painting in your possession is surprisingly small. In today´s society and living situations this might even be an advantage. Small is beautiful. The estimate is based on auction results of similar sold. There is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the item.
