Thank you for your request. The presented object is a watercolor with the measurements of 24 x 20 inches. It depicts a scene from a horse race with two men with a cylinder in the foreground. This watercolor is signed in pencil with the name "Raoul Dufy". The famous French artist Raoul DUFY (1877-1953) depicted many of these horse racing scenes in fast and trained brushstrokes. This watercolor has some weaknesses in the depiction of the horses for example. A watercolor like this needs to be authenticated by the author of the catalogue raisonné or a foundation.
This piece is in good condition and there are no serious damages visible.
An base auction estimation for this drawing, if it is authenticated, would be between 20.000 to 40.000 USD.
This estimation is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
