Dear Amir,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be an acrylic on canvas painting, depicting two women and one man in a tropical setting, gathering fruit. The painting measures approximately 68.5 x 48cm and has been attributed to the Indonesian painter I Made Sukada (1945-1982) due to the presence of the signature "Sukada" in the bottom right corner of the composition. This piece is in good condition and no severe damage is visible in the images provided.

The work is not nearly as detailed and sophisticated as other works that have been positively attributed to Sukada.

Please consider the following comparables:

The unfortunate conclusion from this investigation is that the work of art presented is most likely a forgery, which holds no market value.

If you have questions or concerns, I would recommend that you get in touch with our authentication team by email at [email protected].

Kind regards,
Anne
