What does this mean?

Hello Chris,

Thank you very much for your appraisal inquiry!

The presented object appears to be an oil on canvas painting depicting five (5) mallards in flight over a marshy landscape at sunset. The painting measures 48 x 28 inches in the frame and appears to be in good condition. No severe damage is visible in the images provided.

The painting is signed in the lower left corner "G. Brouwer." Several very similar pieces with identical signatures have been auctioned in the last 10-15 years:

I have seen attributions to Gerald, Gerard and Gien Brouwer. There doesn't seem to be a consensus on the artist's first name or year of birth, but most agree that he's a Dutch artist from the 19th / 20th century. Unfortunately, with so many works on the market, the value is not particularly high, so I would estimate between $50 and 100 USD, though retail and asking prices may vary.

If you would like to sell this piece, or if you have any questions for me, please let me know in the comments section below!

Thanks again and all the best,
Anne
