The presented object appears to be a painting made in oil on canvas with the measurements of 5.5 x 9.5 inches. The painting depicts a still life with two citrons and an apple. This painting appears to be signed by the famous artist Pierre-Auguste RENOIR (1841-1919). Renoir depicted often small-sized still lifes with fruits and other all day objects.
Works by this artist were recently offered and sold on the international auction market.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 40.000 to 80.000 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.
An artwork of such high potential value requires further authentication research. This estimate is provided on the condition of authenticity.
With kind regards,
