Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The presented object appears to be a painting made in oil paint on canvas with the measurements of 18" X 27 1/2". The painting depicts a park with a lake and is signed by the artist Jaya APPASAMY (1918-1984).
Artworks of this artist were not recently offered and sold on the international and national auction market. This defines a difficult situation for the apprisal because there are no comparables to define an actual market situation.
This piece is in good condition and there are no serious damages visible.
An estimation would be between 4.000 to 8.000 USD.
This estimation is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
An artwork of such high potential value requires further authentication research. This estimate is provided on the condition of authenticity.
With kind regards,
