This is a copy of Marc Chagalls painting because I fell in love with his work back around 1967-1967.I painted this picture over 50 years ago on canvas board I think.It has been in my cellar up until the past 2 years.I am interested in whether or not it has any value.It is on my living room wall and I love it there.It is next to another Chagall painting that I did.I have three of his lithographs as well.Thank you.
I am the only one who has owned it because I painted it.It is roughly 51-53 years old.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The presented object appears to be a painting made in oil or acrylic paint on canvas with the measurements of 16" x 20". this painting is a copy after the famous motif "The Fiddler" by Marc Chagall. This painting was made by James Barber in the late 1960s.
Works by this artist were recently not 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 100 to 250 USD.
