Description

This is a very old oil painting, inherited from my mom who inherited it from her parents. I don't know how much further back it goes. I have a photo of it if you'd like to see that. It measures 43" across and 31" down.

Provenance

It has been in my mother's house since she got it when her parents died. Before that, it was hanging in their home above their sofa.

$100 - $200 (United States Dollar)

Dear Pam,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be a painting made in oil paint on canvas with unknown measurements. The painting depicts a landscape with a river and is signed in the right corner by the artist Eugène LA FORET (1931). He mainly painted landscapes and his artworks are offered and sold on the auction market.
This piece is in good condition and there are no serious damages visible.
An estimation would be between 100 to 200 USD.
This estimation is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.

With kind regards,
Georg

Does the price for which you appraised the painting include the antique frame which houses it or did you only consider the value of the art itself? If so, how much more should I expect to get for such a beautiful antique frame?

Dear Pam,

Thank you for your email. The price includes the frame which was made in the second half of the 20th century also.

With kind regards,
Georg

Where might I sell it in Nassau County, N.Y. to get the best possible price?

Dear Pam,

I recommend to offer it trough an online-based marketplace like eBay.

With kind regards,
Georg
