What does this mean?

Dear Nathan,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

This oil painting on canvas appears to be by the 19th-century British artist called S. A. Galton. This is a view of Hastings, with lifeboats and figures on the beach. It is signed and dated "S. A. Galton, 95" (lower left) and inscribed "Hastings, S.A. Galton" on the stretcher. The dimensions with frame are 25 1/2 x 35 1/4 inches. There are some craquelure and small patches visible throughout the painting.

Sadly, his paintings have been selling below their presale estimates lately

The estimation highlighted in red above has been based on comparables offered and sold at auction in the last five years. The subject work’s size, the composition, condition (based on photographs and comments provided), as well as the artists’ current auction market were taken into consideration when determining the estimate. In many cases, pricing for similar items available on the primary (retail) market vary and are often higher than secondary (auction) market examples.

Best regards,
