Hi Pamela,

I'm sorry, this is outside my field of expertise.

With a quick google search the only thing I was able to find on Martin Tang is, that he's a very well known local artist in the San Fransisco Bay area and his specialty is the scenery and architecture of San Fransisco.

You might try either bringing the piece to an art dealer, who may be able to give you more info on the artist and the piece you have, or take a picture of the piece and email it to art dealers (or galleries) who specialize in contemporary  art. If you can pin-point dealers and galleries in the San Fransisco area, you'd probably have the best luck in finding something out.

Sorry I couldn't be more in the way of help.

Please don't ask me about identifying artists of art you might own, or about appraising art you own! You need to have an art appraiser look at your art. I've worked professionally as an illustrator for over 25 years. I've illustrated numerous children's books, classroom games, textbook/workbooks, posters and educational materials. I've also designed extensively for silk screen production. My designs have been printed primarily for the children's retail market, in stores as diverse as Bloomingdales to Montgomery Ward. Publications my work has appeared in such noteworthy publications as Highlights for Children, Scholastic Magazine, and the New York Times. Publishers I have worked with include McGraw Hill, North Atlantic Books, Hachai Publishing and MacMillan UK to name a few


I'd be happy to answer questions regarding illustration, technique, materials, offer tips or questions about art in general.I will not answer questions about art appraisal. My only request is that you write me using standard English and punctuation.
