Hello Yassine,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be a pastel on paper drawing, depicting wildlife: fish, a bear and a wolf in an abstract, traditionally Native American style. The drawing measures approximately 13 x 11 in. and has been attributed to the Native American artist Jaune Quick-to-See Smith (born 1940) due to the presence of the signature in the bottom right corner of the composition and a gallery label affixed to the verso.

Based on the following comparables:

I would estimate a conditional current fair market value of this piece to be between $1500 and 2500 USD.

However, I do recommend some additional research to confirm the authenticity (and value) of this artwork. Given that the artist is still alive and the LewAllen gallery featured on the label is still open, this should be relatively easy. Please get touch with our authentication team by email at [email protected] if you have any questions.

Kind regards,
Anne
