What does this mean?

Dear George,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The item presented appears to be a beautiful landscape painting by the English artist Henry Ashby Binckes (c. 1825-1893). This oil on canvas measures 20' (h) x 30" (w) and is signed on the lower right. The reverse reads the title of the work, "Figures in landscape". According to the information provided, it was purchased by your father in 1965. It is housed in an intricate gilt frame, and the condition is excellent overall.

Sadly, very little information appears to have been written about the life and career of this particular artist. Two paintings by Binckes can be found in two public collections in the UK that you can view here: https://artuk.org/discover/artists/binckes-henry-ashby-c-18251893

After checking our records, it seems that this particular artist is mainly offered on the auction market in the UK and Europe. The estimate highlighted in red has been based on the following criteria:

The most recent existing auction market
The subject work's size
The composition
The condition based on photographs and comments provided

In many cases, please note that pricing for similar items available on the primary (retail) market vary and are often higher than secondary (auction) market examples.

Best regards,

Karine
