Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry and for supplying me with the dimensions. Carlos Rodriquez Yorde does not have any secondary (auction) sales with which to use as a basis for a fair-market appraisal so I have considered recent auction sales of Surrealist 20th/21st century school works of roughly the same size to gauge the current fair-market value for this work.
Based on the photographs and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:
Carlos Rodriquez Yorde (Cuban American, 20th/21st Century)
oil or acrylic on canvas
16 3/4 by 13 3/4 inches
signed, titled and dated on the reverse
Provenance: Laura Buxton Check
$300-500 (represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking prices may vary.)
Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you for using Mearto.
