Oil on canvas, 14” x 17”, description on back of frame says: Edward K. Williams, Nashville, Indiana, Hoosier Art Salon, 1943, ‘The Duckbill’
Unknown. It’s been in our family, I believe, since 1943.
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 14” x 17”. The painting depicts a farmhouse and is signed in the left corner by the artist Edward K. WILLIAMS (1870-1950). He is famous for landscape painting but until now just much bigger painting was offered on the market. On the reverse side, this painting is titled ‘The Duckbill’ and noted that it was exhibited in the Hoosier Art Salon in 1943. It must be painted short before this date.
This piece is in good condition and there are no serious damages visible.
An estimation would be between 1000 to 2000 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,
