What does this mean?

Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. 文成公主 has been and still is very popular both in Tibet and China. The historical person and the fictitious are so closely connected that it is very difficult to find the grain of truth. Your brushstroke is very precise and the painting very decorative. The estimate is based on similar paintings by lesser known artists offered or sold at auction.
To establish a correct estimate on the market value a number of your paintings have to be bought and sold in public auctions.
